Who is your daddy and what does he do?
Guardians of the Galaxy star Michael Rooker ('Yondu') participated in a Q&A session for Minnesota's KQRS radio station and one member of the audience asked him about the identity of Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) father.
KQRS Listener: In the comics, we know who Star-Lord's father is (J'son, aka Jason of Spartax) ...
Michael Rooker: That's right.
KQRS Listener: And you reference him in the movie...
Michael Rooker: That's right, I do.
KQRS Listener: But I heard they're going in a different direction?
Michael Rooker: What makes you say that?
KQRS Listener: Just what I've heard online.
Michael Rooker: Well, you've heard wrong.
KQRS Listener: Okay. So...
Michael Rooker: What direction is that?
KQRS Listener: I don't know.
Michael Rooker: I don't know, nobody knows who Star-Lord's daddy is.
KQRS Listener: I do in the comics, if you've read the comics.
Michael Rooker: Well, you may be wrong.
KQRS Listener: Okay, that's what my question was - if they had revealed it to you?
Michael Rooker: I know who the daddy is. I can't say. But if you've read the comics - dug those comics out of your closet and read them - you will know who the daddy is.
KQRS Listener: So there going to go with that iteration?
Michael Rooker: I don't know.0comments
