If you don't have time to watch the video, you can read what he had to say below:
IAR: I've heard you recently talk about how good Bradley Cooper is going to be as the voice of Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, but I want to know how awesome Vin Diesel is going to be as the voice of Groot?
Chris Pratt: Dude, I think Vin Diesel is going to be great. The role of Groot is also an amazing role. I want to tell you about it but I feel like if I tell you even one little thing it's going to start pulling the thread that is going to expose too much. But I think Vin is going to be amazing. Vin Diesel's voice is an incredible tool that he has. I've watched a couple of his movies now that I knew that he was going to be cast as Groot. Just like listening to his voice ... when you think of Vin Diesel you think of the look. You think of that Diesel look. (You think of) Dom (The Fast and the Furious), xXx, the buff, and all that stuff. But truly his greatest talent is his voice I think. I would not be surprised if this doesn't open up a whole new world to him doing voice acting. He's really got a special tool in that voice. It's deep, raspy and so distinct. I think he's going to do a great job voicing this role.
A jet pilot (Pratt) gets stranded in space, and must unite a diverse team of aliens to form a squad capable of defeating cosmic threats.
Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled to open in theaters on August 1st, 2014.
