Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Kent worked as the Sneeper alien. Portraying two different Sneepers, one was a Ravager and the other on planet Contraxia when Sylvester Stallone was introduced into the Marvel Universe. He survived a grueling auditioning process that narrowed the Ravagers from thousands of candidates to earning a spot in the Ravager Camp held at Pinewood Atlanta. 200 entered and approximately 50 made the final cut. Out of those 50 there were about 15 Hero makeup Ravagers and Kent earned role as the Sneeper. There is an interesting backstory to the Sneeper race, created by Stan Lee who introduced the race in 1963 in Marvel’s Tales of Suspense #49, The Tales of the Watcher. Fast forward to Guardians Vol 2 and James Gunn has a hilarious tale of how he was able to use the species after getting approval from the Marvel legal team. The final track on the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack, Awesome Mix Vol.2, is titled Guardians Inferno Performed by the Sneepers featuring David Hasselhoff. Written by James Gunn and Tyler Bates.
