One of the running jokes in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” centers on Chris Pratt‘s fantasies of a celebrity father, a certain 1980s TV star who makes hilariously bizarre cameos in the Marvel space adventure.
So when Made in Hollywood reporter Kylie Erica Mar sat down with “Galaxy 2” star Dave Bautista, she had to ask the pro-wrestler-turned-actor who he’d want for a famous father.
“I’m going to say this because I have a bit of a man crush,” says Bautista, who plays the socially awkward Drax the Destroyer. “I’m going to go with Ryan Gosling.”
At age 36, Gosling is a dozen years younger than the 48-year-old Bautista. But no matter. It’s a fantasy dad — plus Bautista knows him well, working with Gosling on the sequel to “Blade Runner.”
“I love this guy,” Bautista says. “I love everything about him. I’m going to start calling him dad.”
