Michael Rooker, best known as Merle from AMC’s The Walking Dead, has been cast as one of the superheroes for Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy film.
Rooker will play Yondu, a game hunter of a primitive tribe native to Centauri IV. Rooker joins a cast that already includes Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista.
Rooker just finished his run on The Walking Dead, as his character was killed, zombified, and then killed again.
Disney is planning Guardians of the Galaxy for August 1, 2014.
