Jason Momoa Recruited For Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Clarity Alert: My sources are telling me Jason Momoa TESTED for Drax the Destroyer/GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY but at this time has NO offer.— Borys Kit (@Borys_Kit) February 15, 2013
This doesn't mean Momoa won't be their guy. It just means Marvel still hasn't chosen their Drax.— Borys Kit (@Borys_Kit) February 15, 2013
FYI, Momoa is asking for DOUBLE the Marvel asking price for the role. He is the only one who flew to London to screen test. He returns Sat.— Umberto Gonzalez @ SDCC (@elmayimbe) February 15, 2013
