The long list of actors being considered to star as Peter Quill (a.k.a. Star-Lord) in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" is now apparently down to just two names. The actors include Jim Sturgess, most commonly known for his role in "Cloud Atlas" and "One Day" opposite Anne Hathaway, and Zachary Levi, known for his hit TV show "Chuck".
This news was a bit surprising due to the fact that Levi is already set to appear as Fandral in the upcoming "Thor: The Dark World". Having the same actor appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a separate character is quite a risk to diehard fans, so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
The other lead characters in the film yet to be filled include Groot, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Racoon and Gamora. We'll keep you posted as new details emerge.
