'Guardians of the Galaxy' Cast Support James Gunn, Want Him Reinstated as Director

The Guardians of the Galaxy cast – Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Sean Gunn, Michael Rooker, and Pom Klementieff – have come together to support the re-hiring of James Gunn after being fired over past tweets.

Zoe tweeted out the letter with the tweet, “If you please, read the statement written and signed by The Guardians of the Galaxy cast in support of James Gunn’s reinstatement as director of GOTG Volume 3.”

The letter begins, “We fully support James Gunn. We were all shocked by his abrupt firing last week and have intentionally waited these ten days to respond in order to think, pray, listen, and discuss. In that time, we’ve been encouraged by the outpouring of support from fans and members of the media who wish to see James reinstated as director of Volume 3 as well as discouraged by those so easily duped into believing the many outlandish conspiracy theories surrounding him.”

“We are not here to defend his jokes of many years ago but rather to share our experience having spent many years together on set making Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2. The character he has shown in the wake of his firing is consistent with the man he was every day on set, and his apology, now and from years ago when first addressing these remarks, we believe is from the heart, a heart we all know, trust, and love,” the letter continues.

Finally, “There is little due process in the court of public opinion. James is likely not the last good person to be put on trial. Given the growing political divide in this country, it’s safe to say instances like this will continue, although we hope Americans from across the political spectrum can ease up on the character assassinations and stop weaponizing mob mentality.”

Vin Diesel Gets Honored with PhD from Hunter's College 30 Years After Dropping Out

Vin Diesel has graduated with a PhD – 30 years after dropping out of university!

The 50-year-old Fast & Furious franchise star was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters in English degree from the same institution, Hunter College, he quit three decades ago at a graduation ceremony at Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday (May 30) in New York City.

During his speech, Vin said: “While I was in Hollywood I always had this pride of Hunter College. I would tell everybody that I learned and took so much away from my experience at Hunter College. I was young, I was a bouncer, when I wasn’t bouncing I was in these classrooms with the most diverse student body on the planet.”

“We’re strivers. We can overcome anything. You learn that here and you take into the world. And then you can look at Hollywood and change the face of Hollywood,” Vin continued. “You can literally change the face of Hollywood because of that dignity and pride and willingness to fight.”


Here’s to all the committed professors who make us who we are… Grateful.

Dwayne Johnson Dishes on Vin Diesel Feud & the Current Status of Their Relationship

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson spoke out about rumors of a feud between him and Vin Diesel during his Rolling Stone cover story.

If you don’t know, during filming for Fast & Furious 8, The Rock posted a scathing Instagram post calling out his “Candy ass” male co-stars, confirmed to be about Vin. Here’s what Dwayne shared about the 2016 experience…

On if he feuded with Vin Diesel on Fast & Furious set: “That is correct…Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer. And what I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach moviemaking and collaborating. It took me some time, but I’m grateful for that clarity. Whether we work together again or not….But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the clarity we have. Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity.”

On if he’ll return for a 9th installment: “I’m not quite sure…Right now I’m concentrating on making the spinoff [Hobbs and Shaw, co-starring Jason Statham] as good as it can be”
