I used to be on the airport and James and I had simply spoken, and we had been like, ‘Oh man, sh-t, this Strolling Lifeless factor remains to be happening. You’re taking pictures the movie, Guardians 1, proper once we’re filming the season.’ And so I used to be gonna play one other function in Guardians of the Galaxy.”
