Guardians of the Galaxy's James Gunn Promises Another Music Sequence on Blu-Ray Deleted Scene
Apparently the big, blue-skinned guard who stole Peter Quill's Walkman originally had a musical scene to Pilot's "Magic" -- one which will be included on the film's upcoming home video release.
But what's with the little thing of Play-Doh? Read on for the caption from director James Gunn's "GOTG pic of the day":
Here's me and the actor Spencer Wilding who played the Mean Guard who jabs Quill in the prison with the electrical staff and gets his comeuppance to Escape (the Piña Colada Song). He also has a little container of Play-Doh. Why Play-Doh? Because I would keep a pile of little Play-Doh containers onset and if someone did an especially amazing job that day - whether it was an actor, a grip, a stunt man, or a PA - they'd get a canister of Play-Doh. I probably only gave about 40 containers out over the entire shoot - on an 85 day schedule with a crew of a couple hundred, that isn't much. I chose Play-Doh because I love the smell of it - opening a new container and smelling it puts me in a creative, child-like place. And who doesn't love playing with Play-Doh (I swear Play-Doh isn't paying for this post)? Anway, Spencer got the Play-Doh for a scene where he danced through the prison listening to Quill's Walkman (specifically, Magic by Pilot). We cut the scene for many reasons, but it was awesome and hilarious and Spence more than deserved his rarely-given Play-Doh (and, yes, before you ask me a thousand times below, it WILL be on the Blu-Ray outtakes, and no I will not tell you the release date - you can go see the movie again! It's still out!) Have a great day (or night depending in where you are).
Guardians of the Galaxy is still in theaters. It's expected on DVD and Blu-ray in late November or early December.0comments
