Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) and Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) have all signed test deals for the lead role of 'Peter Quill' in Guardians of the Galaxy, while there is also said to be interest in Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), James Marsden (X-Men) and Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom). This is an impressive list of actors and they would all bring something very different and unique to the lead role in James Gunn's foray into Marvel Studios' cosmic universe. So, the question now is which of these guys you would most like to see bring 'Star-Lord' to the big screen in 2014. And remember, be sure to stay tuned to CBM for more casting updates on the highly anticipated movie!

I think Joel Edgerton or Garrett Hedlund would be good depending on which direction they want for Star Lord. Gritty war veteran would be Joel, young and naive Hedlund.
zemus - 11/29/2012, 8:15 AM
Joel is the obvious choice. If people have no seen Warrior, they should. Once you see that, he is the landslide choice.
spidey1994 - 11/29/2012, 8:22 AM
Though I still want either Nathan Fillion or John Barrowman, I think Joel Edgerton would kick ass in the role, I want Garrett Hedlund to be Jack Flag though.
Reasonnnn - 11/29/2012, 8:23 AM
Give it to Edgerton; he's a great actor and is a very good physical actor (looks at Warrior).
Shara184 - 11/29/2012, 8:23 AM
Joel Edgerton for me honestly, I've never read Guardians but judging from pictures Star Lord looks and feels like a real man, a strong man who protects no matter the cost in my opinion. Almost like Cap and the only one out of the list here who has that look is Joel. The rest still have that boyish look that we try to avoid when looking for a man who can make us feel safe.

Marvel better bring Oprah for this role...
Rhinoman - 11/29/2012, 8:29 AM
Youtube Richard Harrow for convincing.

Needs to go to Jack Huston
Christuffer - 11/29/2012, 8:35 AM
Garrett Hedlund for the win. I still effing love Tron Legacy. Still one of my favorite movies, and the soundtrack is awesome. I'm convinced that he can do it.
Preston - 11/29/2012, 8:41 AM
Out of these guys, I would go for:
Lee Pace

However...

For Your consideration: Timothy Olyphant



Humor:


Action:

DrRockso - 11/29/2012, 8:51 AM
How in the [frick]ing he'll is Olyphant absent from this list?
MachineGunner - 11/29/2012, 8:58 AM
Nathan Fillion.
TheDesertGorilla - 11/29/2012, 9:00 AM
Chris Evans.
Kayo - 11/29/2012, 9:05 AM
don't know who would be the best Star-Lord and i think whoever they pick will have a great job to fulfill.

bring on Annihilation Conquest..........can't wait for more news
HavocPrime - 11/29/2012, 9:08 AM
I must admit, it is [frick]ng weird seeing Jack Huston with a full face
Preston - 11/29/2012, 9:12 AM
@DrRockso

True...

The Shootings Of Raylan Givens






^^^ Some of these are funny as all h#ll.
superotherside - 11/29/2012, 9:22 AM
Other: Chris Pine



He's just perfect for the role. It doesn't matter he plays in Star Trek either. He's a great actor and I think he would be fantastic in the part. Although if Marvel Studios hires someone else I'll give them the befit of the doubt because Chris Evens really surprised me.
Seven23 - 11/29/2012, 9:26 AM
Will be awesome to saw james marsden on marvel movieverse again !!
StrangerX - 11/29/2012, 9:29 AM
I like Joel Edgerton but I want him to play Corsair. I guess he can be in GOTG tho
DanteSparda - 11/29/2012, 9:29 AM
Vin Diesel for Drax :)
Harmondale2 - 11/29/2012, 9:37 AM
whoever it ends up being just make sure its not James Marsden, get him as far away from this role as possible
Kayo - 11/29/2012, 9:39 AM
Rooker is Rocket Racoon
pepe - 11/29/2012, 9:39 AM
I´m an Affleck-dike to... She´s the best actress around
dnno1 - 11/29/2012, 9:40 AM
James Marsden.
Preston - 11/29/2012, 9:51 AM
@BM

I agree Lee [frick]ing Pace is one versatile MOFO. He can do drama, comedy, action, and everything in between. Plus, he is 'really' underrated.

If they are to go with one of these guys, they should go with him:
Pace

Rhys - 11/29/2012, 10:05 AM
Pace, Edgerton, or Huston.

Out of all these actors, Lee Pace is my favorite, so I'd definitely go for him.

Edgerton is good...not a choice I would've imagined, but might be awesome.

I don't watch Boardwalk Empire, but from the comments he's getting a lot of support. And from what I can tell, he'd be really good.
mk - 11/29/2012, 10:07 AM
Huston = Dr. Strange
Id still go for Edgerton or Marsden
SageMode - 11/29/2012, 10:10 AM
I say no to pug-face Edgerton.

James Marsden FTW
mk - 11/29/2012, 10:13 AM
@SageMode

lol wow... didnt even notice until you said it
thats pretty funny
PersonaPostOvo - 11/29/2012, 10:14 AM
Kyle Chandler for Star-Lord
Temple - 11/29/2012, 10:14 AM
Between Garrett hedlund or Joel Edgerton. Hedlund has the look, but Edgerton seems to have better acting skills from what I've heard, and in a way, he almost looks like Star-Lord.
JRM1995 - 11/29/2012, 10:38 AM
Nobody since this crap comic shouldn't even be made into a film.
maxxgone - 11/29/2012, 10:42 AM
edgerton would feel more the leader type. the kind of guy a group of intergalactic outlaws would respect & follow. the others are no doubt talented, but edgerton has got that leadership essence.
789 - 11/29/2012, 10:45 AM
You know I would want Eddie Cahill for Star-Lord,



but between choices I would choose Jack Huston, because he was my candidate too.

SageMode - 11/29/2012, 10:49 AM
789

Didn't you just have Eddie Cahill as Batman in that JGL Batman poll?
FilmDork1221 - 11/29/2012, 11:05 AM
Nathan Fillion... that is all
PersonaPostOvo - 11/29/2012, 11:09 AM
Kyle Chandler for Star-Lord!!

SageMode - 11/29/2012, 11:14 AM
And there's only one Strange.........

DaenerysTargaryen - 11/29/2012, 11:52 AM
My votes for the guy who raised Luke Skywalker *star wars*, killed Osama bin laden *Zero Dark thirty* and beat up Bane *Warrior*. So Joel it is.
marvel72 - 11/29/2012, 11:58 AM
i would go for any of these......

-joel edgerton
-jim sturgess
-james marsdens

maybe this time round marsden can actually be the leader of the team & not made to look like a prick by another character just so he can take centre stage.

(x-men,cyclops & wolverine reference for those wondering)
SageMode - 11/29/2012, 12:15 PM
BATZ

Exactly....well, minus the mullet-esque hairdo he sported. Its funny seeing Superman in that pic too.
