Another great casting decision imo. I really like that they're not going for actors who would distract from the characters with this.

Also, the GoT and HBO alums are really getting a lot of love in Hollywood right now. Alan Taylor directing Thor, Dickledge being cast in X-Men, Michael Shannon getting Zod, and now this. If you want a role in Hollywood just get a major roll on an HBO show.

You say that as if that was a secret.

Great casting decision. They're doing pretty good with casting so far.

I remember when people were complaining about him not being big enough for Conan. Now he's typecast as the big buff intimidating guy. Exactly like Hemsworth.

I wonder if Momoa will shave his head for the part?

Borys Kit of the THR tweeted that Momoa tested, but has no offer:

I think he's big enough for this role. Pratt is 6''2', 6''4' is just about right for Drax. And his build shouldn't be extremely huge but cut, big, and somewhat lean which Momoa has...I sort of wish Lebron James was an actor he'd be perfect for Drax physically lol.

Borys is having sour grapes.. he confirmed one aspect of the story which nobody was reporting about before today.. I'm sure the reps are denying to allow the "right" outlet to release the news.. I'm sure THR had that locked up and they're pissed about it.. El said he stole stories today..

I never argued that he couldn't do it. In fact I specifically stated he was a fine choice. What I disagreed with (and from what I could tell everyone else) was that he was the ONLY choice

He is a good actor. Let's not forget the cinematic treasures that are Kazaam and Steel.

Lebron has the perfect physique for a lot of comic book characters.

Always annoys me when these casting rumors get tweeted as "official."

If its on Deadline I might put some stock in it.

Holy crap....

I'm a *huge* fan of King James, but he needs to stay as far away from film and TV as possible and stick to sports. He doesn't need to embarrass himself like Shaq did.
