Vin Diesel may have supplied enough Groot dialogue to last the character’s entire cinematic history, but the actor will still go back in the studio for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
I think we all saw this one coming.
This is the silliest role ever. Just auto tune this sh!t and call it a day.
Casting such an actor for this role, that pretty much only entails saying the name "Groot", is such a waste of talent and money. How are the accountants not pulling their hair out over this? Even for the audience, who cares that Vin Diesel is saying "Groot" for two hours?
They probably got him pretty cheap since he really doesn't have to do much voice acting for the role. The movie still gets to have his recognizable name on the cover, kind of a win win for the movie producers if you think about it.
Well, I don't know if anyone went to see this movie for Vin Diesel's name, and if they did, they must have been pretty disappointed to only have him say "Groot" all the time. However much he cost, I'm sure it would have been much cheaper to get an unknown to say those lines. Or they should've turned it into a contest to get a fan to voice it for free. How much skill could you possibly need for Groot's lines...
Cant they just use all his sayings from the first one
That's I was thinking. Thought they said he recorded it over 1000 times.
How much is he getting paid to say 3 lines in different ways ? Easiest job ever
While I cannot say I am surprised, I think the fact he did the voice acting for every language the movie was released in is quite the feat. Most voice actor's wouldn't have considered that. I can't imagine that they technically *needed* him for the second movie, but they did say that having him say it multiple ways to convey various emotions within the "I am Groot" is why they invested so much in him. I am happy to see him return.
Inevitable, what makes money keeps him happy.
Happy to know Groot's coming back. :)
