Marvel Cinematic Universe has just added Kevin Bacon to its array of actors as a surprise cameo in The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.

In Guardians lore, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is a fan of actor Kevin Bacon and his work in the dance-drama Footloose. In order to cheer him up during Christmas as he is mourning the loss of Gamora (Zoe Saldana), his fellow Guardians – Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Drax (Dave Bautista) and Groot (Vin Diesel), Kraglin (Sean Gunn) decide to bring Bacon to meet him.

Bacon had previously spoken about being name-checked in Guardians, and said, “When I saw Guardians of the Galaxy, I went to see it having no idea that I was discussed. It was an afternoon in New York, I was on 67th Street and went by myself, as I often do. I was like, ‘Holy shit. They’re talking about me. Are you guys getting this?'”

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special arrives on November 25 on Disney+, just weeks after Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens in theaters. On the other hand, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, will release in theatres on May 5, 2023.
