Kurt Russell and more join the cast of 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'
Attention Kurt Russell fans! Your man has been cast in the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, now shooting.
Director James Gunn made the announcement on Twitter and Facebook:
There were a few more cast additions, too: Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, and, as was previously announced, Pom Klementieff.
Gunn even told us who Klementieff will be playing:
And, as you can see, refused to say which roles the others will fill. But there's plenty of speculation already that Russell will be Peter Quill's father (and has been for some time now) ... which Gunn sort of denied:
There is no J’Son in the MCU (unless, in the future, that’s the name Moon Kinght’s stoner neighbor gives himself) https://t.co/8hGdNP1NlS— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 17, 2016
Yeah, I'd say the odds that Russell is playing Quill's dad are pretty good.
