During our recent convention coverage at the 2013 Dragon Con event held in Atlanta, MovieViral was lucky enough to be a part of a press interview with the charismatic and fun-loving Michael Rooker. He talked about a lot of things including his role of Merle on The Walking Dead, his friendship with director James Gunn (Slither, Super, Guardians of the Galaxy) and a few small tidbits on his turn as the blue alien Yondu in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Check out the full interview after the break.
