We reported a few days back that Lee Pace was short-listed – among some other actors like Joel Edgerton, Jim Sturgess, Jack Huston, Eddie Redmayne, James Marsden, Garrett Hedlund and Sullivan Stapleton – for the lead role of Star-Lord in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and the actor recently confirmed his upcoming audition.
This year, Pace has already checked a historical drama in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln on his to-do list, as well as a sweeping fantasy epic in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. He is now in the run for Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, a human-alien hybrid who is a master strategist and combat expert, wears an ability-enhancing suit, pilots a psychically-linked ship and is the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
As we said, Pace confirmed his upcoming audition for Guardians of the Galaxy in an interview with MTV. Check out the video below, followed »
