When I think about my on set interview with Michael Rooker for his role as Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it still makes me laugh. He was so funny and quite entertaining! Just to give you an idea, he brought his “teeth” with him to the interview so that he could show us…yep, the one he wears while in character, LOL.
Here’s what Michael Rooker had to say…
***It takes 2 hours for him to get his make up on.
***On teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy: “They’ve teamed up with me…I’m the one that can whistle and take out a whole army, okay?”
***His thoughts on the script: “It’s a great script. Gunn wrote it and it’s a continuation of Yondu in the first script. He wrote that for me, so he just wrote more odd things that I get to do and stuff because he knows me and he knows I’m a wee bit odd, so he just plays on it and writes some silly things. It’s not all silly, but it’s fun. It’s a lot of fun.
***Working with James Gunn: “…I have a good time doing it and he’s a good writer and a great director…I was forced to be in this movie…If you guys can maybe call the HIT team, hostage rescue team, and maybe get me out of here, I would really appreciate it…if he hears that I’ve been saying this, he’s going to come and he’ll hurt me again [LAUGHS]. He’ll make me do another scene while he’s directing. It’s so painful. He is a great guy. Great director. We have a lot of fun.”
Be sure to check back in each day this week for what it was like to be on the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Set and interviews with Chris Pratt (“Peter Quill”), Zoe Saldana (“Gamora”), Dave Bautista (“Drax), Karen Gillan (“Nebula”) and Director James Gunn.
