Michael Rooker Lends a Hand to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Michael Rooker

As we all know, Michael Rooker is fantastic. The man who got his filmic start as a murderer in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer has gone on to redefine intensity in a ton of roles and has most recently anchored The Walking Dead with a bizarre brand of lovable racism.

According to Deadline, he’s now re-teaming with director James Gunn for Marvel’s Guardians of the GalaxySlither reunion! Get excited. He’ll be playing the alien Yondu Udonta who rocks blue skin, a bitchin’ red mohawk and both of his original hands (until he, no kidding, gets his right one replaced by a device that converted into several different weapons). So this past season of The Walking Dead may have been one big audition tape. The character is also one with nature and kills with a bow that features arrows that can change direction at the archer’s command.

Yet again, Marvel shows its superiority in casting.
