Lee Pace Confirms His Audition for Star-Lord in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
“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.
