New role for Michael? Happy Birthday ctbn60! [Jan. 3rd, 2013|08:05 pm]

Michael tweeted yesterday that he has auditioned for the role of Peter Quill in "Guardians of the Galaxy." This would be huge for him & tweeting about it indicates how much he wants it; instantly, the 'net was abuzz with a lot of approving responses. It's the kind of role he could knock out of the park so my fingers are crossed hard for him!

Via tumblr: He's also looking very fine these days!

It's ctbn60's birthday which means CLEX!

*tells Lex how he's doing while getting lost in Lex's fathom-deep eyes*
Photobucket

*wonders if he's crazy to have fallen so hard for Clark*
Photobucket

*decides it's totally worth it, even if it sometimes hurts like hell*
Photobucket

*tries to think of any excuse to keep Lex there*

*tries to come up with any excuse to stay with Clark*

Someday, Lex. I will hold you and never let you go. Someday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAR!

Isn't he pretty? Now, why he's posing in someone's garage is another question...except for the hair, it could almost be a Lex photo. "Why yes, Clark, I have been living in your garage."

I saw Michael tweet about that, but I'll admit I had no idea what he was talking about. If we get to see him back at work and on the big screen again, I'm all for it!!! :D

GUUUHHH!!!! HOLY...!!! That is one very seriously sexy pic of Michael! I could stare at it for a VERY long time!

*smooshes the boys together* It's "Someday". ;)

It would be a huge project for him - under same Marvel umbrella as the Avengers franchise. *crosses fingers*

Gorgeous creature! He is welcome to lurk in my garage any time!

Never!! It's sane and it's right and it's destiny!

Absolutely. I would think because of his connection to James Gunn he would play it close to his vest since he doesn't want to make his friend have to turn him down. I wonder how much rein the studio is giving Gunn.

And that's a hot picture of Mikey! Looking real good.

I wondered if JG might have given him the go ahead to tweet about it, in order to show the studio a positive fan response (which he got.) But someone also theorized that MR might have tweeted as a favour to JG & the studio: if there's a buzz around candidates beyond JGL, then JGL might settle for a lower price. And MR might be rewarded with a role. (Probably too convoluted.)

It's likely a long shot but I so hope he gets it. JGL's amazing but he's already Batman for heck's sake. And Mikey is better than ZL or John K.

Way too convoluted. And I think JGL is just a rumor. Because of TDKR people think he wants to continue the superhero realm but really it was the opportunity to continue working with Christopher Nolan, not being part of the superhero mythos. I really don't think it's something he's really interested in.

And even if an actor did reduce their quote, they'll usually do a deal to make it up on the backend and that could end up costing the studio more in the long run if the film is profitable.

Love that pic! It was taken during the Old Days shoot - I remember it from one of the Evansville websites I think. Still doesn't explain why he's posing in a garage...

I know nothing about GOTG except that now I might have to see it! I was initially slightly concerned that he's becoming typecast in comics roles but hey, it's his career and there seems to be a lot of enthusiasm about him on Twitter. I was surprised that he would tweet it before it's a done deal - drumming up support I suppose. Bit embarrassing if he then doesn't get it even though the director's a good mate though. Eh, I'm a pessimist...

Oh of course - it's the same suit! They should have used this one on the cover. He looks so lovely.

This would actually be casting him against type as a (grumpy) hero who's also half-alien. He's always wanted a Harrison Ford role and this is it! Plus it would open up lots of opportunities within the Marvel & Whedon spheres.

I can't imagine he would tweet without JG's say-so....My guess would be JG suggested that Michael tweet so he can show the studio that fans support the idea (& they did.) However the elephant in the room is the lovely Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who I like very much, but he's going to be Batman! How many heroes does one guy need to play? He would also cost more than MR. There's also a number of other guys making sure their names are out there (today, the guy from the US version of the Office put his name out there.)

If Michael doesn't get the role he's after, hopefully he still gets into the movie somehow!

I thought that jgl as batman story had been debunked as rumor? Anyway, MR is a good actor, he deserves more opportunities to show what he can do. Good luck to him. Also it'd be great if he gets more attention and get Tumblr to obsess about him as Lex. That'd be awesome.

That could very well be - I saw it mentioned repeatedly but it could just be fannish wishful thinking.

Would love if Michael got this big chance!
