Rumor of the Day: Karen Gillan to Play Kickass Space Pirate Queen in Guardians of the Galaxy

Oh, you’d forgotten that Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, and Karen Gillan were in Guardians of the Galaxy? Should I remind you that Glenn Close, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt and John C. Reilly are also on board?

There’s no telling at this juncture whether this will be the best superhero team movie ever made, but it stands a good chance of being the craziest. Remember: we don’t even know who’ll be voicing the anthropomorphic raccoon commando yet.

Bryan Fuller On a Possible Pushing Daisies Reunion in Hannibal, Doing a Pushing Daisies Zombie Movie

First things first, to those not watching NBC’s Hannibal: Watch Hannibal. The acting’s great, the characters are wonderful, and it’s insanely fun seeing the writers play with the fact that the audience knows Hannibal Lecter’s a killer cannibal but the characters don’t. (Said at a dinner meeting: “Next time bring your wife. I’d love to have you both for dinner.” Oh-ho-ho!)

Another reason to catch up on Hannibal, at least if you’re a Pushing Daisies fan: Some combination of Lee Pace, Kristin Chenoweth, and Anna Friel might join its cast in season two. If it gets a season two. C’mon, people. Let’s make this the Bryan Fuller show that lasts.

Lee Pace And His Eyebrows Will Probably Be the Villain in Guardians of the Galaxy

Back in the early days of Guardians of the Galaxy casting, when everybody and their brother was rumored to be up for the role of Star-Lord, Lee Pace was one of the actors who definitely auditioned for the part. Though the role eventually went to Chris Pratt, director James Gunn must’ve really liked Pace (as he should), because now the actor is reportedly in “final negotiations” to play the villain.

To get exceedingly superficial for a moment: Tom Hiddleston, you might be getting some competition in the Most Attractive Marvel Villain department.

Fandral from Thor: The Dark World Might Also Star in Guardians of the Galaxy, Because Marvel Really Likes Zachary Levi

Most of the discussion up to this point on Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy has had to do with that sexist, homophobic (or “satirical,” depending on your viewpoint) superhero post director James Gunn wrote that surfaced last month. But for those of you who haven’t sworn off the movie because of his involvement, we have a bit of casting news. Variety is reporting that the choice of actors for the lead role, Star-Lord (aka Peter Quill), is down to two: Jim Sturgess (l) and Zachary Levi.
