Lee Pace Playing a Villain in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Lee Pace

Lee Pace once tested for the lead in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, but too bad he didn't get it. The part of Peter Quill went to Chris Pratt instead. As it turns out, there's a more fitting role for him in the movie.

According to TheWrap, Pace is playing the villain in the movie. Who he is playing was not revealed, so it could range from The Controller to the recently rumored The Collector to a host of other villainous characters (Thanos?). We'll know soon enough.

Ophelia Lovibond boarded the move earlier this week in a mystery role as well. It has been said that she's playing a supporting or assistant-like character. Speculate away.

The pair will be joined in the movie by Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, and Michael Rooker as Yondu.

James Gunn is directing Guardians of the Galaxy this June over in London for an August 1, 2014 release.
