Vin Diesel strapped on his stilts and did his best impression of a 7-foot tree on the set of “Fast & Furious 7” — all part of his preparation for his role as “Groot” in “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Diesel admitted that he’ll only have one line in the film — and that’s good news for fans of Marvel’s comic-book character, who only ever says “I am Groot.”
But that didn’t stop him for getting method and showing off his impressive stilt-walking skills for various cast and crew on the set of “Fast 7” in a video he posted to his Facebook page.

“I’m getting ready for my motion capture for ‘Guardians,’ for Groot,” he told a gaggle of impressed women.
Then it was over to Kurt Russell, who found Diesel’s skills to be “amazing,” and worthy of a high five.
Finally, Diesel made his way to his “Guardians” and “Fast 7” co-star Djimon Hounsou‘s trailer. Hounsou was delighted to see the preparation Diesel was bringing to the role.

“I have one line in the movie,” Diesel said. “But that doesn’t mean anything. I’m still going to make it the best thing I possibly can.”
