You might recall an article we posted yesterday about actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt being in the running to play Peter Quill aka Star-Lord. Well, it seems Gordon-Levitt isn't the only actor in the running for the coveted role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Apparently, actor Michael Rosenbaum who is best known for his portrayal of Lex Luthor on the CW Smallville series is as well. The actor recently took to Twitter to reveal that he read for the role of Peter Quill for his friend James Gunn, director of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
So the question remains, is Rosenbaum really in the running to play the part of Star-Lord, or is this just his way of joking around? Either way it would be interesting to see. If the actor wants the part he'll be in the running with plenty of other young, prominent actors in the business, including (supposedly) Gordon-Levitt.
So what do you think? Do you think that Rosenbaum would make a good Star-Lord? If not him then who do you think should play this half human/alien/cyborg hybrid leader and member of the Guardians of the Galaxy?
