Last night on Facebook director James Gunn, Sean Gunn and Michael Rooker hosted a LIVE Q&A on Facebook.
Even more good news, Guardians also nabbed two Oscar nominations today. How cool is that?
By now you’ve surely seen the video teasing just a bit of what went down during Doug Benson’s recent chat with Rooker & the Gunn brothers. But have you listened to the full podcast yet? Click the photo to go now!
Taking a moment to reflect on his newfound moment in the sun in conjunction with “Guardians'” home video release, Rooker — who first grabbed Hollywood’s attention in the late ’80s in films like “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” and “Mississippi Burning” — spoke with CBR News and made one thing perfectly clear: he’s ready to head forward, especially when it comes to reprising the role of Yondu…
Don’t shoot the messenger, James.
“I always act like a director, so it doesn’t seem to change that much, especially with Rooker, who is like this stray dog who’s always running off and about to get away and you have to be like, ‘Rooker, come back here, come back here, come back here.’ That’s sort of the nature of our relationship anyway.”
“I think Yondu is going to be a fan favorite in the film as well. We have a lot of cool characters in this film that my buddy Gunn directed. I’m very happy that I got to be a part of this.”
Guardians of the Galaxy nails $94 million opening weekend at the box office!
Movieweb recently had the chance to speak with Michael Rooker about the extensive commitment it took to just apply the makeup for this character, how filmmaker James Gunn’s style has been altered (if at all) to build this immense sequel, and much more.
