Hollywood action star VinDiesel will lend his voice for the sentimental tree-like hero Groot in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.



The upcoming movie, based on the comic book of the same name, follows a group of intergalactic heroes, led by Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, as they are tasked with battling cosmic threats, reported Ace Showbiz.



Earlier this year in August it was announced Hollywood lead man Bradley Cooper was also cast in the film; he is the voice of Rocket Raccoon.



James Gunn, who will direct the movie, posted a photo of Diesel along with a model of the character he will be playing, the caption read, "Vin Diesel is a super awesome dude. I can't tell you how much I like this guy." Diesel also posted the same photo on his official Facebook page to confirm the news.



There has been talk of the 46 year-old actor joining the project for quite some time now and in July the Fast & Furious star said that he had attended several meetings with Marvel about the role.



He will be joining the cast that includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora and his Riddick co-star Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer.
