Back in May, during a spoiler-filled Facebook Live Q&A session, director James Gunn revealed that Yondu actor Michael Rooker fell asleep during the film's most emotional scene, creating a bit of an awkward situation for the cast as they tried to film the character's funeral scene with a powerful speech led by Chris Pratt's Star-Lord. According to Gunn, Rooker didn't just fall asleep once, but rather ten times, and the director just posted the video on Facebook to prove it.
In the video below, you can hear Rooker's snore growing louder as Gunn and the cast get ready to film the poignant scene, which made things rather uncomfortable for everyone else, even though they managed to hold it together. As Gunn explained to a commenter on Facebook, the cast was crying during the scene, making it difficult for them to find any humor in the situation. That, of course, doesn't mean they can't find humor in it now.
Written and directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out now on Digital HD, DVD and Blu-ray. The movie stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell.
