Vin Diesel spoke to the Huffington Post about what he's going to bring to Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy:

The idea of bringing that physicality to a CGI character always tantalized me. To strip away everything is insane. In this case, the voice plays heavily into it, too. I don't know what kind of dialogue will be in it, but even if it stayed true to character, there's so much one can do with `I am Groot.' It's the kind of challenge very few actors ever get.
