Actor Michael Rooker, who portrayed as the blue-skinned alien Yondu Udonta in Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, accidentally destroyed part of a set at Chicago morning news show after he appeared on the show for an interview.
Prior to attending the Wizard World Comic Con Chicago on Friday and Sunday, Rooker stopped by WGN Morning News when he accidentally stumbled upon a ledge and destroyed it.
The official WGN Morning News Twitter account posted the video showing Rooker with the broken ledge in his hand.
“We love having Michael Rooker on our show. This is why,” the video caption read.
The show’s anchor Larry Potash admitted in the video that by far almost all single guests have tripped up the ledge.
“I’m a Chicago actor, I break sets,” Rooker said in the video.
During the interview, when Rooker was asked about the James Gunn-directed Inferno music video, where he appeared alongside David Hasselhoff, Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana, he said it was James Gunn who forced him to do the video.
“That was really stupid,” Rooker said. “That was very stupid, and James Gunn talked me into it. He forced us all to do this.”
Last month when Disney fired James Gunn from directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after some of his offensive past tweets resurfaced, Rooker was among the ones who came forward in full support of Gunn. The actor even deleted his Twitter account and pledged never to return back to the social media platform again.
He even signed a joint statement along with other Guardian franchise actors including Pratt, Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and Sean Gunn calling out Disney to reinstate Gunn as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director.
According to recent reports, Disney and Marvel have halted Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 production work as they haven’t yet tapped a new director for the film. Prior to Gunn’s firing, the film was set to enter full production in early 2019.
No release date has been set for the third Guardians of the Galaxy film yet.
