Benicio Del Toro discusses ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ role as The Collector

Benicio Del Toro is one of the biggest names in Guardians Of The Galaxy which has an incredible cast.

Now while promoting Jimmy P Del Toro discusses joining the Marvel film with French magazine Les Inrockuptibles (via CBM)

“When someone calls you and says ‘I need you in my movie,’ it’s exciting,” he says. “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 [to research] about him…”

Del Toro might have done some reading around the subject, he goes on to say that his character’s motivation is occasionally kept a mystery even to him.

“For example, they told you ‘Now you have to go in this restaurant and kill this person,’” says Del Toro. “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.”

The Collector appears to be set to show off his violent side.

The film is directed by James Gunn and co-starring Chris Pratt, Glenn Close, and Zoe Saldana with Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper voicing two other cases.

Guardians Of The Galaxy will open in theaters August 1, 2014
