At some time today, Lee Pace will head on over to audition for the leading role of, Peter Quill aka Starlord in Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. How's he feeling about it? The actor dished out his thoughts over the weekend to MTV during a red carpet event for THE HOBBIT.

Pace said this on his prep for the audition, "I go in on Monday to meet them all and audition for it, so wish me luck. I'm very excited about it. The script is great. The character is a lot of fun. I have been [reading up on Star-Lord]. You want to know what you're doing. The character is a lot of fun. I hope it works out."

As you may have recently read, Pace has some competition for the role. Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Eddie Redmayne, and possibly James Marsden are on a shortlist to nab the part. Does Pace think he has a good chance? "We'll see. We'll see. I've got to audition. I've got to go get it. I actually love auditioning, so I'm happy to go meet them all and do it," Pace said.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY directed by James Gunn is due to release on August 1, 2014.

After seeing Jack Huston single-handedly wipeout an entire mob hideout in Boardwalk Empire I can't think of anyone on the shortlist that would be more perfect.

Is it wrong that I don't want Jack Huston to get the part just b/c I think that will mean he'll be on Boardwalk Empire less (like Michael Shannon once he got the part of Zod)? I'd be up for seeing Michael Pitt or Charlie Cox get the role, however.

My pick is for Joel Edgerton. He is the best choice out of the candidates they have and he was amazing in Warrior. I just think he would fit in nicely with the other character actors in the Marvel universe.

Dark horse pick is Jack Huston. He would be great casting and probably the most left field choice since Downey Jr. for Iron Man.

Love Lee Pace in all his various TV shows, mostly Pushing Daisies. With his recent influx of small parts in big movies (Hobbit, Twilight, and Lincoln) I hope he finally gets to lead his own movie and become a big name!
