‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Adds The Walking Dead’s Michael Rooker as Yondu
Michael Rooker, who most recently appeared on AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’, has just joined the cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, the eagerly anticipated project to run alongside their ‘Avengers’ franchise.
Rooker will play Yondu, a hunter of a primitive tribe on the first planet system inhabited outside of our solar system (according to comic-book lore). He eventually joins the superhero league, but we have no idea what form the character will take in the movie version.
The film will be directed by James Gunn and has already cast Chris Pratt. Disney plans for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ to hit theaters on August 1st 2014.
