Not only has Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy become the biggest movie of the summer, but it’s just highly entertaining fun. An action-packed epic space adventure, it’s such a fun ride, with great action, plenty of laughs, a ton of heart and perfect choices in music, and it will have you cheering for the snarky Rocket Raccoon and a talking tree named Groot.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actor Michael Rooker (who plays blue-skinned humanoid Yondu) talked about how amazing it is to be a first-time Marvel actor and hit a home run, that he was confident that director James Gunn would put him in the film, if he could just convince Marvel and Disney, how he wouldn’t have been able to do Guardians, if his time on The Walking Dead hadn’t come to an end, how Yondu’s teeth and contacts bothered him more than the make-up, how very similar the finished product is to the original script, what a collaborative filmmaker James Gunn is, how even though he has no idea where his character will go in the sequel yet, he does know that Yondu will be more fleshed out, and that he’d love to see Yondu in other environments like Avengers 3. He also talked about his next project, Bolden, which is a mythical account of the life of Buddy Bolden, the first cornet king of New Orleans. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
