Vin Diesel has taken to his Facebook once again to reveal some insider info with a new video where he mentions he is playing Groot.

If we are to take the following video as truth, Vin Diesel is practicing as portraying Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie while on the set of Fast & Furious 7.

James Gunn recently wrapped filming on the Guardians of the Galaxy in London, but it looks as if Vin Diesel and Groot will be added in post-production through the use of CGI and digital effects.

Vin Diesel previously stated he was going to be involved in the CGI of Groot when he confirmed the part.

We hear Vin Diesel mention that he is playing "Groot, a 7-and-a-half foot tree," yet Marvel Studios has officially to confirm the casting.

Check out "Tree Form Down Time."

The "Guardians of the Galaxy movie" has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer and Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Lee Pace as Ronan, Djimon Hounsu as Korath the Pursuer, with John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, Glen Close as Nova Prime, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.
