James Gunn shared this charming on-set photo of the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 cast juxtaposed with their stand-ins (apart from Dave Bautista, who is clearly irreplaceable) with the caption: "Who wore it better?"

OK, those of you who want that Groot hat, form an orderly line. Fun fact: Rocket Racoon uses two stand-ins: director James Gunn's brother Sean Gunn, and actress Arti Shah (pictured).

If you wanna get technical about it, stand-ins are a totally integral part of the filmmaking process. Stand-ins substitute for the actors while the crew sort out the techy stuff — lighting, cameras, etc. — and work the same insane hours as film people the world over. Unsung heroes of the stand-in world, we salute you!
