Kurt Russell roped in for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’
My favorite movie as a small child was The Strongest Man in the World, so I’m glad to announce that, yes, Kurt Russell has joined our cast and, yes, he is more awesome a dude than I ever could have imagined.
The last few days around here with him and our other new cast members, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Chris Sullivan, have been some of the best of my life. I never thought anyone was missing from our island of misfit toys, but now that these folks are here there feels like there was.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, and Glenn Close are all returning. We’ll have more surprises for you in the coming months. But, for now, this will have to do he posted in his facebook page. “There is no J’Son in the MCU (unless, later on, that is the name Moon Knight’s stoner neighbor gives himself).”
Russell will join three other new cast individuals Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki and Chris Sullivan.
“I never thought anybody was absent from our island of rebel toys, yet now that these people arrive there senses that there was,” Gunn included Facebook before later affirming on Twitter that Klementieff would play Mantis.
