Benicio Del Toro Talks GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Recalling a specific scene he filmed and more, The Collector actor Benicio Del Toro talks about his experience shooting Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Check out what he says after the jump!



While promoting his recent film, Jimmy P., actor Benicio Del Toro talked a bit about his role as Taneleer Tivan aka The Collector in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Speaking with French magazine Les Inrockuptibles, the Academy Award winner said, "When someone calls you and says ‘I need you in my movie’, it’s exciting. I like comic-book movies, and it’s totally new for me. My character is The Collector, I’ve never heard of him so I just started some researches about him... A blockbuster can be really tiring to do, but it’s fun to shoot one occasionally. You have many people around you who bombard you with many information… You can not go wrong." Benicio Del Toro continues, "For example they told you ‘Now you have to go in this restaurant and kill this person.’ And then you ask: ‘Who? The blue haired girl, or the guy with the wig? ‘And you don’t get the answer. And suddenly, you heard ‘Action!’. And you have to go along: so you shoot everywhere and they’ll find a solution for the final cut."
