Director James Gunn had a dream cast in mind when he first pitched Guardians of the Galaxy to Marvel. He meticulously compiled a "little book" with his casting ideas for each of the Guardians characters.

You know, it's pretty amusing when you dive into the comics. They went all in with a bunch of complicated plot twists, and guess what? They ended up making Star-Lord the space equivalent of Jesus.

Chris Pratt's remarkable transformation into the character Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" Movies,had an unexpected consequence for his TV show "Parks and Recreation." During the filming of the show's seventh season, a shirtless scene was planned.

Still sporting his superhero physique, Pratt no longer resembled his sitcom character, Andy Dwyer, leading the show's co-creator, Michael Schur, to conclude that the scene wouldn't work. Schur acknowledged the challenge of explaining why Andy now looked like a superhero. Fortunately for Pratt, this change coincided with the conclusion of "Parks and Rec," allowing him to fully embrace his superhero role in the MCU.

Diesel's approach to this role was meticulous. Before each delivery of "I am Groot," he would consult with James Gunn, the director, to understand the character's motivation for that specific line.
