Bad news: JGL turned down the role of Star-Lord in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Bummer :( I'm looking forward to the movie but with him staring in it? I would have been over the moon with excitement! *sad sigh*

Good news: On the other hand, JGL signed up for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For: source. He took the part of Johnny, previously offered to Johnny Depp. He will also re-unite with Bruce Willis in it!

Gordon-Levitt will play Johnny, a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game.

“Johnny is a new character in the Sin City world and we are excited for what Joseph will bring to the role,” say directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller in a press release (it’s amazing how people can talk in unison in a press release).

“I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality,” adds Gordon-Levitt. “Plus, nobody makes a badass like Mr Rodriguez.”

Other actors already conformed include Mickey Rourke as Marv, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Rosario Dawson as Gail, Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy, Dennis Haysbert as Manute and Jamie Chung as Miho.

I still haven't seen the first Sin City - though I own it on DVD, as is my habit - but the twins love it, so... I guess this makes me excited - not as much as if he had joined GotG, but what can you do. This style suits him better, I think: not so flashy, rather dark and gritty. We will see how it goes...
