Jim Sturgess up for Guardians role

Jim Sturgess is in the running to play Star-Lord in Guardians Of The Galaxy

Jim Sturgess has made it onto the shortlist for a lead role in Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy.

The Cloud Atlas actor is among the final contenders for the coveted role of Star-Lord, reported Variety.

Chuck star Zachary Levi is also in the running and sources have apparently said that another actor, who hasn't been named, may yet be tested for the part.

The character is described as an interplanetary policeman who leads a group of superheroes "in an effort to protect the solar system from an evil alien race".

Guardians Of The Galaxy is being directed by James Gunn and is expected to arrive in cinemas in 2014.
