Benicio Del Toro has joined the eclectic cast of Guardians of the Galaxy. Deadline reports that Del Toro has signed a deal to play the lead role in the film directed by James Gunn.  His role is not known at this time, but his character is being set up to be part of future Marvel films. It is good to see that Marvel is putting so much support behind  this film.

Guardians of the Galaxy will star Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly and others. Benicio Del Toro recently joined the cast of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice. His next film, Jimmy P, had it’s world premiere at Cannes. Del Toro is also set to star in the untitled film directed by Terrence Malick.

There have been a bunch of memorable roles in his career. My personal favorite Benicio Del Toro film is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Traffic. I am interested to see who he will play in the film. Stay tuned for more information about his role.


Who do you think Benicio Del Toro is playing in the film?
