Initially the fan-favorite choice to play Star-Lord, it looks as if Nathan Fillion has a cameo in the James Gunn-directed Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

At a recent Firefly panel in St. Louis, Fillion teased that he might be making an appearance.

“Wanting to get a part? Or maybe did,” Fillion responded when asked about wanting a role in Guardians of the Galaxy.

“Maybe there’ll be a surprise. Maybe check the credits of the movie when you watch it,” Fillion teased. 

From Fillion's description, it's possible that he might be playing an alien in make-up as he says to check the credits (because we wouldn't recognize him on screen). Perhaps another possibility could be father to Star-Lord with Jason.

Nathan Fillion also starred in James Gunn's Slither and Super as well.

Chris Pratt landed the lead role of Peter Quill aka Star-Lord.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" has an August 1, 2014 release in the U.S. starring Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana As Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Disel as Groot, Lee Pace as Ronan, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Djimon Houndsou as Korath, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Benicio del Toro as The Collector, John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey and Glenn Close as Nova Prime Rael.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance.
