Three names have surfaced with Dave Bautista, of WWE fame, said to be in contention. Bautista has recently entered the Hollywood mix having landed roles in Riddick and The Man With Iron Fists.
The two other names listed are Isaiah Mustafa (Three Stooges, Gears of War, Charlie's Angels), and Brian Patrick Wade, a celebrity trainer and also an actor.
It's also said that three names are up for the character of Drax with John Krasinski (The Office) said to be up for Star-Lord, which would be the 11th name, I think, said to be up for the role.
