Guardians of the Galaxy Casting Rumors: Dominic Purcell for Drax; Jeffrey Wright For Groot

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3294:]]

We know James Gunn is directing the Guardians of the Galaxy movie with Chris McCoy doing rewrites on the script.

We know that everyone and their mom wants Nathan Fillion to play Star-Lord.

But what about the other characters?

While traversing the Super Hero Hype Forums a couple of their users said they heard some rumors.

One rumor has it that Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) might be up to play Drax The Destroyer (right).

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3295:]]

Another rumor says that Jeffrey Wright (Hunger Games) might be voicing Groot (left).

While just rumor, it’s still fun to speculate who Marvel Studios might get to play the characters.

Maybe either Dan Abnett or Andy Lanning to voice Rocket Raccoon?! Rocket does speak with an English accent you know!

Regarding Nathan Fillion and Star-Lord, interestingly enough Marvel Comics seems to be going for a much younger Star-Lord (unexplained) than his Annihiltion-esque counterpart. Is Marvel trying to tell us something?

I hope not.

Looks like Moondragon may have already been cast if she appears.

So what about Gamora? Any picks?
