Chris Pratt: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Leading Man!

Chris Pratt has landed the leading role in the upcoming Marvel superhero flick Guardians of the Galaxy, according to Deadline.

The 33-year-old Parks and Recreation actor, who bulked up last year for his role in the Oscar-nominated flick Zero Dark Thirty, will play the role of Star-Lord (aka Peter Quill), who is the offspring of a human mother and an alien father.

In the comic book, “Star-Lord leads a group of alien superheros who team to protect the solar system from an evil alien race.”

    Too bad. Lee Pace could have brought some class to the role.

    I think he is an out of the box choice for the role. I enjoy him on Parks and Recreation, his Andy is consistently the best character on the show (next to Ron Swanson) and I look forward to seeing how he will handle Peter Quill.

    Chris looked good for Zero Dark Thirty.

    JGL is busy with Batman and DC Comics stuff, he couldn’t leave and do a Marvel comics flick.
    About Chris, I think he can pull it out, but I personally prefer Lee Pace. Still, nice choice!

    @Leenah: JGL is busy with DC comics so he can’t really be in marvel movies, even though he denied being involved in anymore DC films, I do believe he’s hiding something.
