Here is what I know so far on Guardians Of The Galaxy, first off, the search for Peter Quill aka Starlord continues. Peter Quill is the half-human, half-alien hero who was made the leader of the latest iteration of the Guardians when it launched in 2008.
Remember back around Thanksgiving when Mike Fleming over at Deadline dropped a list of names in contention?
According to my sources, you can add Wes Bentley, Chris Lowell, and Cam Gigandet to the latest crop of actors reading for the role. Keep in mind I said reading, they didn’t get no offers yet.
But here is the kicker. Marvel is going after some big comedic actors perhaps for some comedic relief in the movie. Exactly how big?
Marvel is asking for the availability of both Jim Carrey AND Adam Sandler!
For what roles, I’m not sure. Maybe Rocket or Groot? Jim Carrey I can see since he is already playing Colonel Stars & Stripes in Kick Ass 2, but Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) in a Marvel movie?!
As they say on ESPN, “C’mon man!”
Then again think about it. Adam Sandler has had one stinker after another at the box office so being in a Marvel movie could be a smart career move at this point. Marvel fans what do you think? Can you see Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler in a Marvel movie? Sound off below.
