What a difference a year makes.
Actor Michael Rooker was most recently seen as Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy, but Kevin Smith fans will remember him as Brandi Svenning's talk show producing dad in the cult classic Mallrats.
We spoke with Rooker just before last year's inaugural Minneapolis Comic Con, and he was pleased to find out there were even people still interested in Mallrats, which was filmed in Minnesota at Eden Prairie Center. Now, Rooker will be co-hosting a panel with his Mallrats co-star Jason Mewes at this year's event, thanks to the announcement of a sequel this spring.
We caught up with Rooker again to chat about sequels, action figures, and chocolate-covered pretzels, natch.
