Chris Sullivan is making it big with his appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, yet his character Taserface leaves him practically unrecognizable. Entertainment Weekly got the chance to sit down with the actor and speak about his role.
“Taserface is an intergalactic space pirate, who is in the service of Yondu, and a member of the Ravagers.”
“Taserface is loud. [Chuckles] Taserface is the defensive lineman on your high school football team. He’s a very loud individual who enjoys pushing people around.”
Sullivan also spoke a bit about the make-up process behind the character as he had to put on extensive prosthetics.
“The makeup process started off at about three-and-a-half hours and we whittled it down to about two-and-a-half, as the makeup team got more and more practiced at it. It was quite involved. But every morning, bright and early, I shared a makeup trailer with Michael Rooker. So, it was he and I sitting next to each other, getting ready for work, and sharing stories of our lives! Michael Rooker is like the Merle Haggard of the acting world. Never a dull moment. Never a dull story. I’ve been a huge fan of his since Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. I don’t think there’s anyone like him. I think he’s singular. I would pay money to sit next to him and get into makeup. Don’t tell Marvel that!”
Looks like Sullivan had a dream come true with the make-up process by the simple fact he was next to Michael Rooker.
10 Things We Would Like To See In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is almost upon us, but we’re already talking about what’s next for our favorite ragtag group of cosmic heroes. It’s already been announced that writer/director James Gunn will return for a third outing in the Marvel franchise, with the upcoming sequel getting positive buzz on social media based from early screenings. Of course, the Guardians are also due to return for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War films as well, teaming up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against Thanos as he gathers the Infinity Stones together to wield ultimate power.
Gunn commented on Facebook that the third film will “conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.” While Phase 4 hasn’t been officially announced, it’s assumed that this third film will be Marvel Studios’ kick-off movie for their next batch of films, most likely eyeing a May 2020 release.
