  • "I liked James a lot and it really was about him, and talking to him about the guy. I wasn't familiar with the comic at all, and then I really loved it. I love that character, he's an incredible character. One thing we debated was he's seen as a cockney accent sometimes. So, we talked about whether we'd do that, or this other guy accent from the city."
  • "Chris Pratt is unbelievable! And Zoe Saldana's great! She's always great. Chris Pratt just blew me away, I thought he's like the perfect guy."
  • "It's been great. The great thing about Gunn is that I tried to set the ground rules early. I said, 'Look, you don't have to sugar-coat anything. Just tell me exactly what you want. think he was basically going like, 'Did you think I would do anything else?' But he's been great! I love Rocket!"
  • "He (Peter Quill)'s Han Solo and Luke combined. I think Rocket is dynamic. He's the sort of Joe Pesci in Goodfellas guy. You need Henry Hill."
