With production on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” underway in the UK, the actors have started posting more and more relevant updates on their Twitter feeds. The latest one comes from leading man Chris Pratt, who will bring the charismatic Peter Quill (a.k.a. Star-Lord) to life. The casting choice initially raised a few eyebrows, particularly among those only familiar with Pratt from his role as the doofy-yet-lovable Andy Dwyer on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” But Pratt’s latest tweet reveals that the actor is more than capable of looking like a super hero.

I mean, what the what? So yeah, Pratt’s ready to throw down with Thor as far as this blogger is concerned. Star-Lord is more of a Han Solo-esque heroic rogue character, but I guess that doesn’t mean he can’t pack all the abs ever alongside a few firearms.
My only hope is that Pratt stays in shape for “Parks and Rec’s” return this fall, because I would love to see how that writing staff explains this Hulked up Andy Dwyer.
