Vin Diesel practices becoming a tree in prep for Guardians of the Galaxy in this set video

Oct. 15, 2013by: Niki Stephens

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY director James Gunn recently announced that filming had wrapped on the film, however on the set of FAST & FURIOUS 7, Vin Diesel is just getting started.

On his Facebook page, the actor shared a video titled "Tree Form Down Time" showing himself spending time in a pair of jumping stilts. While on set he first interacts with a small group, and one of them mentions his role as Groot in the comic film. He's not shy in letting everyone know that he's trying to understand what it is to be a 7-foot tall tree. Then he talks with his FAST & FURIOUS 7 co-star Kurt Russell who is apparently getting a kick out of Diesel on the stilts. The last stop on the tour is to the trailer of his GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY co-star Djimon Hounsou.

Diesel mentions that he only has one line in the movie which is likely Groot's catchphrase "I am Groot!". It's really the only thing he does say.

He's doing a kick ass job in those stilts, by the way.

"Taking Andy Serkis to a whole 'nother level"

Extra Tidbit: Not gunna lie, I kind of want that shirt Diesel is wearing.

Vin Diesel the great! He's in my list of actors who I only wish the best for. Reynolds is in that list too...so perhaps that's not a good thing.

Is it just me, or...

...has no one officially involved with the film even confirmed Diesel is part of it?

Look, he's a nice guy (not nearly as tough or macho as his on screen persona often is as an action tough guy), but he's also batshit crazy. Like, really, really crazy. Like, before Fast & Furious 4 saved his career, he had picked up some bad stigma in Hollywood for being a little eccentric. It almost seems like Diesel is just willing himself to be in the film (sort of like how he STILL acts as though his

It almost seems like Diesel is just willing himself to be in the film (sort of like how he STILL acts as though his Hannibal trilogy is in production even though countless studios have passed on it for years and years for being too expensive and unsellable). I admire his craziness but I think people need to stop taking it so seriously. Even if he does end up getting a role in Guardians, it's only going to be out of his sheer crazy ass perseverance and Marvel pretty much deciding they have to cast him. Which, who knows, may have been his plan all along.

Man. That guy has got his priorities in place. Not taking his life too seriously.

I knew I liked him, didn't know he was so charming though.

Toretto Tuesdays sounds like a good name for a Talk Show. Nevertheless, those shoes remind me of Super Mario Bros. big bouncing shoes.

If Nick Fury eventually meets the Guardians, this would reunite Xander Cage and Augustus Gibbons.

Talk about commitment

Man, Disel seems like he's just down to Earth and awesome. I hope he gets a bigger role in a future Marvel movie.

One does not simply just train to become a tree.

I hope Diesel knocks his one line out of the park. Excited to see him involved.
