Is Marvel Courting Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler for Guardians of the Galaxy?
January 23, 2013
There's been a lot of talk about who will play the lead role in Marvel Studios' upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, but not as much for the supporting cast. Latino Review is reporting that Marvel is looking into the availabilty of actors Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler for the film. It's not clear which roles they're looking at for them, but the most sensible answer would be the tiny, loud-mouthed rodent Rocket Raccoon.
The site also reports that Wes Bentley, Chris Lowell and Cam Gigandet are on the list for the Peter Quill/Star-Lord character. None of this has been confirmed by the studio, so it should be treated strictly as a rumor for now.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be directed by James Gunn (Super, Slither) from a script originally drafted by Chris McCoy and Nicole Periman. The team in the film will consist of Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Raccoon and Gamora.
