Just last week, reports surfaced that Kurt Russell was in talks to play Star-Lord’s father in James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” On the WolfPop podcast, Russell confirms he has spoken with Gun about a role — but that he hadn’t seen the first film and had to see it before seriously considering signing on.
“I literally got a phone call two days ago about this,” Russell explained. “I’ve never seen ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ so I don’t know anything about it. Many times I’ve heard, ‘That’s a really fun movie, a really good movie [with] great characters.’ I don’t know it!”
“I didn’t realize that [James Gunn] had written and directed it, but we talked to each other on the phone,” he continued. “And I just had to be honest and say, ‘Thank you for considering me, I have to read [the script], and I have to watch the [first] movie because I can’t bring anything for you [right now]. I’ve got nothing to offer here. So, I’m amazed to get asked about this because everybody knows more about it than I do.”
“It could be a one line thing for all I know,” he concluded. “But yeah, we’re talking about it… there’s just nothing to talk about at the moment.”
