We've been seeing a lot of news recently for actors up for the role of Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, but there are other characters in the film that need to be cast. One of those characters is Drax the Destroyer.
CBM claims to have a source close to the production who says that Brian Patrick Wade (The Guardian), former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista (Man With The Iron Fists), and Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa are currently up for the part.
Here's a little background info on the character:
A former saxophonist, Arthur Sampson "Art" Douglas and his family were killed by the Titanian Eternal Thanos while driving across the Mojave Desert. Kronos recovered Douglas' astral form and used it to create a superhuman warrior for the purpose of defeating Thanos.

The source also mentions that John Krasinski (The Office) is also up for the role of Star-Lord. This makes sense as the actor was also previously up for the role of Captain America, so I'm sure Marvel will end up working with him somewhere down the line.
There's no confirmation of any of this casting news, but who would you like to see play Drax the Destroyer?
