James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has found its lead. Deadline is reporting that "Parks & Recreation" and Zero Dark Thirty star Chris Pratt will play Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in the August 1, 2014 release.

The Quill character is likely to be the central protagonist of the film. Raised on Earth, Quill learns that his father was from outer space and is drawn into an intergalactic conflict that eventually leads to him becoming the leader of the team.

Quite arguably Marvel Studios' most offbeat property to date, Guardians of the Galaxy's roster is also said to include Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Racoon and Gamora. Check back for casting details on those roles as they emerge.

I like this choice too as I am a fan of Parks & Rec.

I thought he got in shape for Zero Dark Thirty, but he may have gained it back.

Great choice. I've seen him in Parks but not Zero Dark Thirty.

Initially I thought he had the charisma to pull off star lord but needed to get in much better shape. However, I just googled image searched him and he was pretty fit for zero dark.

Thick. Solid. Tight. Beep.

Good casting. this could be a break out role for him. Phone Post

Dick Ryder is a totally innocuous name, what are you talking about?

Sounds like Drax is going to be The guy that played Khal Drogo.

SO FAR NOT BAD CASTING AT ALL.  MAMOA PLAYS A GOOD STOIC CHARACTER.

Am I the only one who cringes every time they talk about this movie? It makes NO sense to adapt this, of all things, IMO.

Looks like Momoa is holding out for a better deal. Marvel is in communication with Bautista as well. Kevin durrant has also been casted but with no indication as to which character he'll play. Perhaps the voice of Rocket Racoon?

Damn looks like they ended up going with Dave Bautisa instead, I was really excited when they said they were making this film but I'm starting to worry. As paws would say *prays this wont suck*.

I was thinking that durrant might be adam warlock or mar-vell.

Since they don't have the rights to Surfer and galactus, those two are pretty well known and powerful cosmic heroes. Phone Post

Good share, Backfist!

Zoe could pull of Gamora. She was deadly in Columbiana.

I think Joe Pantoliano should be the voice of rocket raccoon. Phone Post

Zoe cannot be Gamora. She looks like she is about to die of starvation.
