Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to begin production early next year, and we have one thing on our minds…
Who will play Chris Pratt's father?!
While no actor has been confirmed to step into the role of Star Lord Sr., one big name is said to be director James Gunn's top choice to join the sci-fi sequel!

According to multiple sources familiar with the film's casting process, Peter Quill's dad is most likely to be played by… Kurt Russell!
Meetings are anticipated to occur soon, but Marvel has yet to officially make an offer for the key role in the upcoming sequel!
For those who don't know, Peter Quill has a human mother but an alien father — whose identity remains a closely guarded secret!
His dad is mentioned in the first film, and their relationship will be a big focal point in Vol. 2, which hits theaters May 5, 2017!

Russell — who has had an excellent year with prominent roles in both Furious 7 and The Hateful Eight — reportedly hasn't even read the script yet.
But does he really need to? Srsly, it's gonna be AH-Mazing.
Do YOU think Russell is a good choice to play Star Lord's daddy?
