The Hobbit's Lee Pace Discusses His Guardians of the Galaxy Role


In a new interview with Click Online, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug star Lee Pace, best known for his low-key roles in Breaking Dawn Part 2 and Pushing Daisies, discussed playing Ronan the Accuser, the Marvel villain he will take on in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy.

"He’s a f---ing psycho!" Pace told the website when asked how he would describe his character. "He’s a real monster. I’ve had the best time playing this character. I’m glad its all on film and I never thought I could be so nuts in it!"

In a Marvel Cinematic Universe dominated by the likes of Loki, truly irredeemable villains have been a bit harder to come by--although certainly it seems that Thanos and Ronan are going to be pretty hardcore.

"James Gunn is just putting together a phenomenal movie and I’ve had the best time working with him on it," Pace added. "And yea we’ve made a monster of an alien!"

Guardians of the Galaxy is expected in theaters August 1. James Gunn said earlier this week that he expected to wrap principal photography today.
