    Default Guardians Of The Galaxy Gets Chris Pratt For Star Lord

    According to Deadline, Parks and Recreation's Chris Pratt has been cast in the lead role of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

    Pratt comes fresh from Movie 43, if you could call it fresh, and is also currently in cinemas with Zero Dark Thirty where he plays a Navy SEAL in the final raid sequences. If that's not a diverse resume I don't know what is.

    It's going to be a combination of not looking ridiculous in action but also packing proper comedy chops that will be put to the test in Guardians. Pratt seems like a pretty good pick to me.

    I feel like a little part of me has died.

    I will not give up hope. I will trust Gunn. I just...REALLY?

    I like the guy. He has a fairly varied body of work, he'll just need to lose some of the Parks and Recreation weight (which he did for Zero Dark Thirty). I say bring it on.

    I love the guy as a comedy actor, but he's a big cuddly bear of a guy. As an action hero...I can't see it. I just don't know that I'll be able to take him seriously.

    That said, I'm not writing it off just yet. If nothing else, he's an enormously likeable actor, and I really can't bring myself to not give him a chance. Hmm...

    I'd have preferred Zachary Levi.

    Apparently Marvel Studios is using Everwood as their basis for casting now.

    He's funny on Parks & Rec, at least. I have no attachment to GotG, so I can't really say if he's a good pick of not.

    I actually really like this. Pratt's been great in everything he's in. Moneyball and ZDT come to mind.

    I've never seen anything he's been in, but I'm totally against it based on the fact there's already way too many actors named Chris involved in the Marvel movie stuff. Give other names a chance, dammit!!

    If it was a buddy comedy a la Roger Rabbit, I'd be delighted at his announcement as the human lead. Take that as you will
