Apparently James Gunn loves dancing. At the beginning of Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord busts out some cool dance moves while he's looking for that orb of death. At the end of the film we got to see Groot do a little movin' and goovin'. It turns out there was another dancing scene shot for the movie that never made the final cut.
Gunn posted a photo on Instagram of the prison guard that took Star-Lord's walkman after he's thrown into prison. The character was played by Spencer Wilding, and he eventually gives into the musical awesomeness in the film and dances through the prison.
First of all, Gunn explains the photo above and the why Wilding is holding a container of Play-Doh.

This is just kind of a fun story that serves as a nice part of the ongoing victory lap for director James Gunn's summer smash Guardians of the Galaxy. Earlier in the year box-office pundits were predicting the film could range from a middling performance to an outright disastrous one. It's nice to see quality win out (not only is it my favorite Marvel movie, it's one of my favorite films of the year) in a big way, since the movie is now the only film released in the calendar year to cross the $300 Million mark domestically. If you haven't seen the movie yet, it's obviously holding on quite strongly and should still definitely be in a theater near you. If you have seen it, hit the jump for details on a Guardians of the Galaxy deleted scene. Gunn recently outlined a fun sequence that had to be cut for time. »

Filmmaker James Gunn has revealed details of another deleted scene from Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and one which we'll see on the Blu-ray disc release. Remember that guard that took Peter Quill's Walk-man? Turns out he had a bit more on screen time.
Here's Gunn's explanation of the scene in a new post on his Instagram account:
"Here's me and the actor Spencer Wilding who played the Mean Guard who jabs Quill in the prison with the electrical staff and gets his comeuppance to Escape (the Piña Colada Song).
He also has a little container of Play-Doh. Why Play-Doh? Because I would keep a pile of little Play-Doh containers onset and if someone did an especially amazing job that day - whether it was an actor, a grip, a stunt man, or a Pa - they'd get a canister of Play-Doh. I probably only gave about 40 containers out over »

One of the more poignant scenes in this summer's mega-behemoth Guardians of the Galaxy finds Chris Pratt racing against the clock to retrieve his beloved Walkman before the rest of his crew takes off without him. He encounters actor Spencer Wilding, playing a mean prison guard who is enjoying Escape (The Pina Colada Song) on the Sony cassette player when he gets his comupance. There was actually more to Spencer Wilding's role that we didn't get to see.
Director James Gunn has posted a photo of himself with Spencer Wilding, revealing why the man is holding a miniature can of Play-Doh. He also goes onto describe a scene where the Guard dances through the prison listening to the Walkmen. Check out the photo, then read on for James Gunn's latest tale from the set:

I probably only gave about 40 containers out over the entire shoot - on an 85 day schedule with a crew of a couple hundred, that isn't much. I chose Play-Doh because I love the smell of it - opening a new container and smelling it puts me in a creative, child-like place. And who doesn't love playing with Play-Doh (I swear Play-Doh isn't paying for this »
(Cbr) Marvel’s "Guardians of the Galaxy" is known for its use of ’80s music to great effect — in fact, it’s a linchpin for the film, with many musical sequences played from Peter Quill’s “Awesome Mix” showing up at key points. Director James Gunn recently took to Facebook to tease that there was another musical sequence that left on the cutting-room floor. However, don’t worry: It’ll be included on the Blu-ray release. The filmmaker posted a photo of himself next to actor Spencer Wilding, who played the Nova Corps guard at Knowhere who confiscated Peter Quill’s Walkman, holding a small container of Play-Doh. Why Play-Doh? “I would keep a pile of little Play-Doh containers onset, and if someone did an especially amazing job that day — whether it was an actor, a grip, a stunt man, or a Pa — they’d get a canister of Play-Doh, »

It's been just over a year since the BBC announced that Peter Capaldi would play the Twelfth Doctor. There were rumblings of his casting in the week before the announcement was made, to the point where bookies stopped taking bets on it.
We've spent the last twelve months in anticipation of what seems like dream casting for the Time Lord, but some of us were a little sceptical that an actor of his profile and standing would take the role until it was actually announced, but “he's been in it before” was not atop the list of reasons why we thought it was too good to be true.
Over the course of 50 years, Doctor Who has inevitably reused actors as different characters- there are »
