Michael Rosenbaum As Star-Lord In Guardians of the Galaxy Movie For James Gunn?


4896 We can add yet another name to the list of actors said to be in contention for the lead role of Star-Lord in the James Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

In addition to the earlier news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was a possibility for Peter Quill, we now learn that another DC Comics veteran actor has read for the part as well with Michael Rosenbaum.

Rosenbaum, best known for portraying Lex Luthor on Smallville, let it be known that he tried out for Star-Lord for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie via his Twitter account.

Read for my pal @JamesGunn GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY for PETER QUILL. What a treat! Thanks Jimmy. @Marvel

Michael Rosenbaum joins a now long list of names said to be up for the role, some of which James Gunn denied recently, with X-Men's James Mardsen as well as Thor 2's Zachary Levi being a part of the group.

The Guardians of the Galaxy movie opens August 1, 2014 directed by James Gunn.
