Michael Rooker Answers Some GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Questions

Walking Dead star Michael Rooker is playing the character Yondu in James Gunn's Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy. The actor recently did a question and answer session on Twitter and while he was doing it he talked a little bit about the comic book film he was working on and the character he plays.

Here's a few points of interest that he discussed: 

  • When asked what movie he would like to do after Guardians of the Galaxy, Rooker answered, "Another Guardians. Duh." 
  • Rooker said that it takes "about an hour and a half and two more days to make sure" his blue body paint (for the role of Yondu) is all off. 
  • While talking about joining the Marvel universe, Rooker jokingly said, I'm in a Marvel movie and its paying my mortgage right now. Love Marvel. Sh*t Yes!!!!!!" 
  • Rooker first heard about Guardians of the Galaxy from director James Gunn. 
  • When confusingly asked if he had spent any time with Yondu before playing the character, Rooker joked, "Yeah I visited Yondu. We had a couple pints in London". 
  • When asked if he had to learn a new skill for Guardians of the Galaxy, Rooker joked, "No, I showed them a few." 
  • Apparently, Rooker is still filming scenes for Guardians of the Galaxy. 
Rooker looks pretty awesome in the role, and I'm sure he's going to be a freakin' badass in the movie! I'm excited to see exactly what he ends up bringing to this character.
