A few days ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was added to the shortlist of actors being considered for the role of Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord, who is the lead of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, the list is getting less short as it also includes John Krasinski as a possible lord of stars.
This is not a surprise, as it seems Marvel sees a lot of superhero potential in Krasinski, as the actor was also shortlisted for the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America not so long ago, a role that he lost to Chris Evans.
Another name that’s being linked to Peter Quill and The Guardians of the Galaxy is former Smallville star Micheal Rosenbaum. Krasinski and Rosenbaum will join a shortlist that already includes the aforementioned JGL, as well as Zachary Levy and Jim Sturgess.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians Of The Galaxy will open in the UK on 1 August 2014.
