Yesterday, James Gunn revealed the official first day of filming for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Now that we know when it will start filming, we will hopefully be getting a full cast list around that time. There have been rumors about new additions to the Guardians crew as well as the addition of a certain planet, but now a new rumor is bringing another new cast member to the movie.
It appears that actor/comedian Steve Agee is the latest person to join the movie. On an episode of the Doug Loves Movies podcast, host Doug Benson revealed that Agee would not be appearing on his show as he was traveling to start filming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Agee recently worked on Gunn’s other film The Belko Experiment so they do have a previous relationship.
This rumor does not offer any possible details on who he could be playing. I would expect it to be someone minor, possibly a Ravager. He could also be doing voice work and is traveling to Atlanta to lay down audio for his character. If that is the case, the most notable character would Ego, but it could also be another alien, similar to Nathan Fillion‘s cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to hit theaters May 5, 2017.
