In a recent interview with Hitfix, Lee Pace talks about the villainous character he plays in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. The name of his character is Ronan the Accuser, and from the little bit of him that I've seen in the movie trailers he's going to kick some major ass. When talking about the character Pace declares that it's the "craziest F***ing thing" he's ever been a part of. He goes on to say:
"I'm really excited about this character. I mean he's nuts. I mean I've never played anything like it and I've had such a good, it's one of those things where you don't know how to approach something like this. This is not Joe MacMillan. You can't think, 'Well, you know, this is my relationship with my father...' It's not that. There's none of that, you now, kind of 'This is how I would go about dealing with these problems.' It's a complete kind of act of imagination. But in the hands of James Gunn, I'm such a fan of his movies. So it's very much a creation of his and I found my self being like, 'Alright, let's do it. You tell me what you're into here.'"
When asked what he was most excited about seeing in Guardians of the Galaxy he said Groot, then added:
"I'm really excited to see that character because we didn't get to work with him on-set. Both Groot and Rocket were never there. So we never got to see them. Of course, I want to see how my spaceship turns out. I've [seen] a little bit of the concept art and whatnot but, yeah. That movie is going to be really good."
I personally can't wait to see more of Ronan, this guy looks like a crazy menacing villain! The movie hit theaters on August 1st.
