Marvel has finally cast the lead role of Star-Lord in the James Gunn-directed film Guardians of the Galaxy! According to Deadline Chris Pratt has landed the role, which is actually perfect casting! Pratt stars in NBC's Parks and Recreation, and has had roles in films such as Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty.
There were a ton of names that have been considered for the role over the last few months, but Pratt's name never came up until now. Pratt is such a cool choice for this role! I'm happy he landed it, and I'm looking forward to seeing him take it on!
Guardians of the Galaxy follows a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants. Star-Lord is the pilot and leader of the space superhero team in the film. He's also the offspring of a human mother and an alien father.
