‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star Chris Pratt discusses Star-Lord, his ‘petulance’ and the ‘super weird aliens’

Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has opened up about his role as Peter Quill, and his alter ego Star-Lord, in the upcoming Marvel Comics movie.

Star-Lord Marvel ComicsThe Zero Dark Thirty actor described his character’s personality as “petulant”, but admitted to getting a buzz when he donned the costume for the first time.

“For Quill, without blowing too much of his origin, or anything like that, there’s a petulance to him. He hasn’t really been held accountable, as an adult,” he told reporters.

“He’s been able to be free in space and do whatever he’s wanted to do. That’s really fun because it means that he’s slept with all these super-weird aliens. That’s my favorite weird element of the character. It’s just very wonderful.”

The Parks and Recreation star described his excitement putting on the costume.

“My favorite moment that I’ve had was when I first donned my full wardrobe in the costume department. I put it on and it was just like, ‘Wow!’ I wore it, and I thought that was pretty wonderful. All of a sudden, my walk changed a little bit, and I had a little extra bob in my head. That was pretty cool.”

Karen Gillan has been confirmed as one of the film’s major villains, while Glenn Close will play the leader of the Nova Corps, a body of intergalactic police officers.

Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker and John C Reilly will co-star.

Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled to arrive August 1, 2014.
