The Suicide Squad director James Gunn sent a birthday message to his friend and frequent collaborator Michael Rooker.
Over the years, director James Gunn and actor Michael Rooker have collaborated on a number of projects, including Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy films. Soon, the duo will reunite for Warner Bros. and DC’s The Suicide Squad, in which Rooker will play a yet-to-be-announced character.
Unfortunately, much like the rest of us, James Gunn and Michael Rooker are unable to be together to celebrate the latter’s 65th birthday. However, Gunn took to his official Twitter account to wish Rooker a happy birthday and reflect on the past 15 years together.
You can check out Gunn’s message to Michael Rooker in the post below.
#HappyBirthday, Michael Rooker. Over 15 years, countless countries, 7 movies, a video game, web series & 2 reality shows, you’ve been a great friend. I can’t believe I haven’t seen you in over a month because of self-isolation – that might be a record for us. Love you, buddy. pic.twitter.com/KTBMX7wRpS
