Although there are still two Marvel Studios films to come before James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” hits theaters, news for the upcoming movie has run rampant this week, with news of Bradley Cooper in talks to play Rocket Raccoon. It seems “Guardians of the Galaxy” refuses to slow down as SuperHeroHype has posted photos from the set that include explosions, the production staff and a first look at Michael Rooker as Yondu.
“There’s a lot of me in Yondu,” Rooker said during Comic-Con International. “When I first read the script, I noticed right away that there are some aspects of Yondu’s existence within this universe of ours that were very, very close to me. For example, the tough love that I have towards some of the other cast members. I’m very much like that in my life, as well. I hardly ever do make-up, in the movies I’ve done, except on James Gunn movies. This one is about two-and-a-half hours. To me, that’s a very interesting aspect. When I get mad, I turn red. When I get embarrassed, I turn red. When I get turned on, I get red. And I want the audience to see that, in the character. So, if the character is getting mad, getting upset or getting turned on, you’re getting to see that in the facial tones and the skin tones. That’s what I enjoy about acting. It can be very subtle, like that. With a lot of make-up on, you can’t see a lot of that, so I prefer to have no make-up, at all. But not in this one. I’m very excited to be involved with this.”
