Comedian Steve Agee (“The Sarah Silverman Program”) has reportedly scored a role in Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”.
Agee has yet to be seen in any behind-the-scenes photos from the set, though the comedian is a friend of the film’s director James Gunn and it’s only expected to be a small role or cameo rather than a major part.
Agee’s casting was revealed by Doug Benson on the Doug Loves Movies podcast (via IGN) saying: “[Steve] just found out because he’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bulls–t instead of being here with us today.”
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is currently prepping ahead of actual shooting next week and a May 2017 release. Chris Pratt has posted a photo of a much beloved prop from the film, along with a great personal message. Check that out below:
Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can’t even tell you how excited I am. Ok I’ll try. I’m ecstatic. I’m bursting with joy. I’m overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, joy, gratitude, conviviality, camaraderie, elation, exhilaration. I just used an online thesaurus for these words. I suggest trying that. That way instead of saying "I’m very excited" say, "I’m exhilarated." Never too late to learn words. The pen is mightier than the sword. I never got that. I could whoop someone’s ass if I had a sword and they only had a pen. WAIT!!! Now I get it. Cause you could use a giant pen with a dagger on one end? And a gun on the other end? No? Whatever. Point is… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Is going to be the greatest spectacle film of all time. This is not…. bear with me… using online thesaurus….. Hyperbole! This is not hyperbole!
