James Gunn Reveals One Of The First Movies He Watched When He Was A Child

The director of Guardians of the Galaxy and Suicide Squad, James Gunn has revealed one of the first movies he watched when he was a child on Twitter.

James Gunn took to pay his tribute to legendary actor Geoge Segal, who has died at age 87 after complications during surgery, by sharing his favorite movies of Segal.

James Gunn said George Segal was a remarkable film star. The director continued he is a fan of films such as California Split, The Hot Rock, Blume in Love, A Touch of Class, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

He added that the first George Segal movie he watched was 1977’s ‘Fun with Dick & Jane.’ It even revealed an interesting memory about this movie. He said that when the movie was released, he was very young, so he could not watch it without parental guidance. However, he said it was one of the first movies he watched on the Video Home System.

Here’s what James Gunn said:

“Rest In Peace, George Segal, a movie star who commanded our attention while still seeming like one of us. I loved so many of his films: California Split, The Hot Rock, Blume in Love, A Touch of Class, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

I think mine was Fun with Dick & Jane, a film I was a bit too young to see when it came out (wasn’t allowed to see PG films), but looked to me at 10, for some inexplicable reason, like the greatest movie ever. So it was one of the 1st movies I watched on VHS a couple years later.”

Segal has been playing in the ABC TV series ‘The Goldbergs’ for the past eight years. The last episode of the actor will be aired on April 7.

Segal’s films with two Golden Globe awards including ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,’ ‘Flirting With Disaster,’ ‘California Split’ and ‘The Hot Rock.’

Segal was nominated for the Oscar for ‘Best Supporting Actor’ for his role in ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’
