In an example of it pays to stay close to your favorite directors, Gregg Henry has been added to the Guardians of the Galaxy cast. Henry had previously worked with Guardians of the Galaxy helmer James Gunn on Super and Slither.
He tweeted the following early this morning:
"OK UK hold on, I'm comin'. Joining @James Gunn again - #Slither #Super - this time for @Marvel #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy. Gonnabegreat!"
The Marvel Studios production is already shooting in London and most, if not all, of the parts have been cast. The only one that remains is Rocket Raccoon. Many have theorized that Gregg is on his way to the UK to tackle the part of the heroic raccoon. But, there is one big problem with that idea. Rocket Raccoon will be a CGI character and Henry could play that part in a recording studio here in Hollywood.
Then again, could Gunn be shooting Rocket a la Andy Serkis motion capture?
Henry is joining a cast that includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Benicio del Toro.
