no no, not the furry one…

the not furry one…

Dave Bautista was born in DC, his dad the son of Filipino immigrants. In that small island nation he’s a big thing. Well, he’s a big thing in GotG… I mean, where would they be without Drax to mangle scenery and make us laugh… and with him not at him, because under the badass surface is the loyal heart of a friend you can trust with your life, and a character you can relate to.

GotG has one other Filipino connection: the guy who co-created Starlord himself?!?!?!?
