Michael Rooker - Michael Rooker And James Gunn Teaming Up For 'Guardians Of The Galaxy'

Michael Rooker is to reunite with director James Gunn, for new film Guardians Of The Galaxy.

According to Deadline, Rooker has been cast as Yondu, who apparently is a founding member of the Guardians of the Zatoan tribe in the Marvel Comics series. Yondu is reportedly a skilled hunter with mystic qualities allowing him to build empathetic relationships with a variety of lifeforms. We’ll not lie, we’re not too familiar with this Marvel comic so we’re going to have to go with our source. Props to them for getting Rooker though. Also among the cast is Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora and Dave Bautista, former WWE wrestler, as Drax. There are various rumours that Bautista might be returning to the WWE, though as yet they haven’t amounted to anything more than chatter going round various wrestling gossip sites.

Rooker and Gunn have a long history together, Rooker starred in 2006’s Slither, directed by Gunn, and worked with him again on 2010’s Super. Both were solid outings and the pair have a great respect for each, so we reckon that his addition to the cast can only be a good thing. The film itself is expected to be released at some point in 2014.
