John Krasinski's name is being thrown around (again), and there are some names out for Drax:

I wonder if he was confusing this with that Rise of the Guardians movie.

I'm not entirely keen on any of the rumored actors. It might help if I knew the characters better but it's hard to imagine John Krasinki as some form of superhero. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is even a bit of a stretch to me. And uh, as awesome as Isiah Mustafa is...

Am I the only one thinking this? Or is this movie going to be more humorous and wacky than I imagined?

Latino Review is reporting that Marvel inquired on the availabilities of Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler for this.

I'd think those would be to potentially voice Groot or Rocket Raccoon. Regardless, quite a weird bit of news. I still want Simon Pegg for Rocket Raccoon though.

They're also saying Wes Bentley, Chris Lowell, and Cam Gigandet will read for Star Lord. I don't think I've ever seen a studio test so many actors for one role.

I'd say it will be in similar tone to the other Marvel movies. There's more opportunity for humor due to the nature of the characters and the team's dynamics, but I wouldn't outright say this will be an action-comedy or classify it as wacky. There's plenty of humor to be had when you've got a giant, sentient tree and a trigger happy, talking raccoon in the midst of an intergalactic adventure.

Sandler I'm not big on, but I don't think Carey would be terrible as RR as long as he's not TOO over the top.

Of course, "he wouldn't be terrible" isn't exactly the most ringing of endorsements, so...

It's hard to not think that pulling Carey and Sandler would not so be for accurate casting but for their names. It's been a while since Carey did anything credible and Sandler has been a bomb for ages.

since 2010, three of sandlers six credits have earned $100+ million, with two of them in the $145+ range. two others were $74 and $80 mil. the only real bomb was That's My Boy.

hes made a lot of shit over the past handful of years, but he still brings money to the box office.

Ah, yes. I meant bomb as in quality of his movies. My bad. Probably shoulda used a better word. But those statistics get at what I was saying in regards to grabbing him for his name.

None other than Chris Motherfucking Pratt is playing lead to Guardians of the Galaxy. This is such awesome news, I really hope he blows up after this.
