Talent can only get you so far in Hollywood. That is why it is important to find yourself a good agent that recognizes your talent and has the skills and connections to put your career on the right path. Fortunately for Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn, he encountered such an agent when he met Peter Safran. To thank his agent for all of his hard work and support, Gunn had a painting commissioned of Peter posing with Rocket Raccoon.
"I got my long-time manager Peter Safran a special painting for his 50th birthday, by the great Andy Park who has designed many of the characters in Guardians of the Galaxy (Vol's 1 and 2)," Gunn wrote. "Out of all the people who have helped my career most along the way, Peter is number one. I'm eternally grateful for everything he's done for me."

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
