Chris Pratt on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
Another of the stars of Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy, Chris Pratt, has been chatting about the film...
2014 should be quite a year for Chris Pratt. The actor already has good work under his belt, but his high-profile turns in The LEGO Movie and Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy film should see his star lifted. In the latter, he's playing Star Lord, and he's been chatting to Fandango about the film, and the character.
"Just the fact that he was part of the Marvel brand was really exciting", Pratt admitted. "I was signed up to do the movie before I was even allowed to read a script, so it wasn't like something about this particular character that got me to do it. The fact that it was a Marvel movie is what got me to do it".
He added that "once I did read it there were so many things about the character that I love, and one thing is that he's very much a kid at heart. He's like a man-child. And I like the idea that he's got a false sense of bravado. Deep down inside he's lonely and desperate. But on the outside he walks around like he's big and tough, and I don't think he does a great job of convincing everybody that he's not a scared little child".
Guardians Of The Galaxy, directed by James Gunn, is released on August 1st 2014.
