Who can’t wait for Marvel Studios’ space epic Guardians of the Galaxy?! And with director James Gunn at the helm we are in for an adventure filled with humor and awesome action! But what do the film’s stars have to say about their director and the characters they play? Check out some various interviews from across the webs!
Chris Pratt – Star Lord
“Just the fact that he was part of the Marvel brand was really exciting, I was signed up to do the movie before I was even allowed to read a script, so it wasn’t like something about this particular character that got me to do it. The fact that it was a Marvel movie is what got me to do it. Granted, once I did read it there were so many things about the character that I love, and one thing is that he’s very much a kid at heart. He’s like a man-child. And I like the idea that he’s got a false sense of bravado. Deep down inside he’s lonely and desperate. But on the outside he walks around like he’s big and tough, and I don’t think he does a great job of convincing everybody that he’s not just a scared little child.”
“The characters couldn’t be more different! I remember walking on set, and I was like ‘Very un-elfy, right guys? Ronan is a real psychopathic beast. I’m having the best time playing it. I kept looking over at James Gunn when we were shooting, ‘Too much? Should I pull back?’ He’s like ‘No, more, go for it!’”
Michael Rooker – Yandu
“It’s felt like a James Gunn movie as soon as he called me about it! I went out and bagged a comic just to see what he was doing, and I was like ‘Oh my God, he’s doing this! I was very happy because he’s a big comic guy, even as a young child he really enjoyed reading them, so it was great to see him doing something that really got his creative energy going. He loves to torture me and make me look strange. Directors always love to tell actors what to do, and he loves telling me what to do, and that’s why he hired me!”
