Jonathan Frakes Cast As Star-Lord's Dad In Guardians Of The Galaxy Animated Series

Jonathan Frakes

Not many people commanded more respect than Commander William Riker, and the actor behind the role, Jonathan Frakes, is bringing that same authoritative voice to Guardians of the Galaxy: The Animated Series.

Frakes will be voicing the role of J'Son, who is best known for being Star Lord's dad. He also happens to be the king of the Spartax empire, and his place in both of those roles will be the focus of several episodes this season.

"I'm thrilled to be part of another great sci-fi franchise. And I'm also lucky that the character of J'Son just happens to sound like me," Frakes says with a laugh.


His first episode centers around his son, Star-Lord, going MIA in Spartax, and The Guardians' efforts to recover their leader.

Guardians of the Galaxy airs on Disney XD, and Jonathan Frakes first episode as part of the cast airs on March 13th.
