In 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Michael Rooker took his knack for portraying dangerous characters into outer space, playing the blue-skinned alien Yondu Udonta, wielding a lethal arrow and a menacingly crooked smile. But these days, Rooker has plenty to smile about as his career couldn’t be any more out of this world. Rooker will be among the special guests coming to Oklahoma this weekend at Wizard World Comic Con in Tulsa.
“The conventions are good — it’s always good to get the interaction with the fans,” Rooker said. “That’s my favorite aspect (of the cons) — the meeting new fans, hearing what they enjoy about your work, seeing their excitement at getting to meet you. They’re usually over pretty quickly — just one weekend — but it’s a great weekend — everyone’s there to have a good time and enjoy themselves.”
