Michael Rooker Talks About Star-Lord's Father In Guardians Of The Galaxy Sequel


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.
