*Insert much flailing and screaming here*

Back in December we posted about the best casting rumor ever to hit the interwebs, and though the man himself confirmed he’d gotten a call, we’ve not heard an official announcement…until now. Mark this day in your diaries, folks.

James Gunn has finally made the statement we’ve all been waiting for:

“My favorite movie as a small child was The Strongest Man in the World, so I’m glad to announce that, yes, Kurt Russell has joined our cast and, yes, he is more awesome a dude than I ever could have imagined.”


SNAKE MOTHAFUCKIN’ PLISSKEN IS STAR-LORD’S DAD!!!*

I cannot even imagine the wondrous Pratt/Russell scenes Gunn is going to write, but I’m pretty sure our heads will explode from the awesomeness. I’m just gonna go stock up on ibuprofen now.

In his Facebook post, the director also mentioned that Vol. 2 photography has begun, and the warm fuzzies he was feeling about the new cast additions.

“The last few days around here with him and our other new cast members, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Chris Sullivan, have been some of the best of my life. I never thought anyone was missing from our island of misfit toys, but now that these folks are here there feels like there was.

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, and Glenn Close are all returning.

We’ll have more surprises for you in the coming months. But, for now, this will have to do.

I have to get back to set!”

Psst…LITTLE GROOT!

*Okay, so he didn’t explicitly say Russell is PQ’s father, but we know.
