We knew Vin Diesel was a Katy Perry fan, but we didn’t know he had the moves to match.

Diesel was on The Tonight Show Tuesday, and he told Jimmy Fallon that one of his pre-fame odd jobs was breakdancing.

As might be expected, Fallon convinced the action star to bust out a move or two.

Diesel has a starring role in the upcoming Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy, alongside Bradley Cooper, Zoë Saldana and Chris Pratt. His role is somewhat limited, though: He plays a talking tree named Groot, whose sole line in the film is, “I am Groot.”

If you’re interested (and who wouldn’t be?), you can watch Diesel recite that line in multiple languages below.
