Lots of names have been bandied about and as of last night we can add Michael Rosenblaum’s name to the list of potential candidates.
The former Smallville star tweeted that he read for the role yesterday for the film’s director James Gunn.

Previously, a number of actors have been rumored to be under consideration for the role including Joel Edgerton, Lee Pace, James Marsden, and most recently The Dark Knight Rises co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. However this is the first time we’ve had an actual confirmation that an actor has met with Gunn and the studio over the job.
Guardians Of The Galaxy will start shooting later this year for an August 4, 2014 release.
