Before Christmas we were hearing talk that the final two contenders for the role of Peter Quill, Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Star Lord, were Zachary Levi and Jim Sturgess. There was one footnote, though – that Marvel might decide to test another actor after the holidays.
It seems that might became will, maybe even did, as Deadline are now reporting that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is also in the running.
Well, great. Because he is. Really, really great.
Sturgess is good too, though, and I’m still backing him. Gordon-Levitt will come around at every big role for a guy his age, Sturgess gets just a few less calls. Give him this one, I say.
