Jason Momoa In The Running For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY’s Drax.

jason-momoa-300Jason Momoa might just be going from Conan the Barbarian to Drax the Destroyer in the span of three years.

Multiple sources have confirmed the Game of Thrones star has tested for the role of Drax for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. El Mayimbe over at Latino Review says Marvel was so impressed by the test that they offered the part to him on the spot and it all comes down to a matter of money. However, Borys Kit of the Hollywood Reporter states Momoa was only tested and no decision was made yet.

Regardless, I think its a good choice. Momoa looks the part and is not a bad actor. While Drax from the comic books isn’t overly charismatic, Momoa is and can bring a lot to the role.

We should find out soon, because all the ducks need to get in a row posthaste if the film is going to make its scheduled August 1, 2014 opening.
