Kurt Russel is happy to see ‘one of his favourite people’ aka Sylvestor Stallone in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2
For veteran actor Kurt Russell, the decision to join the cast of Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” was a process that he enjoyed. “After I read the script, I watched the first movie,” Russell says. “I remember that six or seven minutes into the movie, Chris Pratt is walking along. Then the music starts up, and he kicks off one of those alien rats or whatever they were. And I immediately liked the movie. I liked the atmosphere. And I liked his character.”
Russell also enjoyed working with and getting to know the other cast members. “That cast is fabulous,” Russell enthuses. “Zoe was really fun. Dave was really great. And Groot with Vin Diesel’s voice. I got to know Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula, and I got to spend a lot of time, of course, with Pom Klementieff.”
Though they most likely don’t have scenes together as per reports, the famous ‘Tango and Cash’ duo, Kurt is still glad to see action master Sylvestor Stallone also in GOTG Vol 2!
“I was just talking with Sylvester Stallone who’s one of my favorite people, and he loved doing what he did in this movie too. It’s been fun seeing Michael Rooker again. We did ‘Tombstone’ together, and I haven’t seen Michael since then. So there were a lot of positives in this project for me,” the actor concludes.
Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.
