Reports suggest that comedian Steven Agee has joined the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Agee was scheduled to appear on Doug Benson’s podcast Doug Loves Movies, but had to cancel. Benson said the reason for Agee’s absence was that he was heading to work on the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel.
Agee is best known for his role on The Sarah Silverman Program, and is a regular guest on Chris Hardwick’s @midnight. He’s also close friends with Guardians director James Gunn, and has a role in Gunn’s upcoming horror thriller The Belko Experiment.
The casting has not been officially confirmed, but given Agee’s connections to Gunn, it seems likely to be true.
