Lee Pace is in talks with Marvel to star as the villain in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
The character is still unknown, though rumors have been swirling that The Collector could be the main antagonist in the upcoming Marvel Phase 2 film.
The Collector is a scientist who also possesses the power of mind control.
Pace, best known for his role on the TV show Pushing Daisies, would join Chris Pratt as Star-Lord (a role Pace himself tested for), as well as Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, and Michael Rooker.
Guardians of the Galaxy has a release date set for August 1, 2014.
