“I go in on Monday to meet them all and audition for it, so wish me luck…I’m very excited about it. The script is great…I have been [reading up on Star-Lord]. You want to know what you’re doing. The character is a lot of fun. I hope it works out.”It’s far from closing the deal for Pace, in spite of everything – it all comes down to whether or not his audition will line up with how director James Gunn imagined the character. Pace seems fully aware of his competition:
“We’ll see. We’ll see. I’ve got to audition. I’ve got to go get it. I actually love auditioning, so I’m happy to go meet them all and do it.”I think he’s a fine actor, but he’s not quite the first person that crosses my mind when thinking of Star-Lord (I’m a bit more inclined to see Edgerton, or even Stapleton, as fitting for the role). In the end, all we can do is to wait a bit more to see.
