John C. Reilly confirmed role for Guardians of the Galaxy

Jun 17 2013, 10:22am CDT | by

John C. Reilly has been confirmed for 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.

The 48-year-old actor has signed up to play Rhomann Dey in the Marvel Studios' sci-fi, superhero blockbuster, which follows a team of otherworldly superheroes with special powers who are tasked with protecting the universe, according to Deadline.com.

The movie studio has also allegedly shortlisted a string of names to play Reilly's partner, including 'House' star Hugh Laurie, 'Harry Potter' actor Alan Rickman and 'Inception' actor Ken Watanabe.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' - which will be directed by James Gunn - will be set entirely in space and star Chris Pratt as the group's leader, Star-Lord aka Peter Quill; Zoe Saldana as superhuman vixen Gamora; Dave Bautista as burly henchman Drax the Destroyer; and Michael Rooker as Yondu.

Other parts which have yet to be filled include animal crime-fighters Rocket Raccoon and Wal Russ.

It has recently been confirmed that the Guardians will join the cast of 'The Avengers 2' alongside Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain American and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, which is set for release in 2015.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' will open in UK cinemas on 1 August 2014.

New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Clip Has a Finger on the Pulse of the Film’s Humor

Jul 22 2014 7:43pm CDT | Source: Collider

We're walking a fine line with Marvel's marketing for Guardians of the Galaxy, with one side being in danger of giving away too much and the other offering teases to fans and newcomers alike.  In the last four days alone, we've seen not one, but two clips from the film.  Now, since audience reactions to an early screening were overwhelmingly positive, perhaps they want to encourage that great word of mouth with yet another clip.  This one does a solid job of not only show ...

With just a little over a week to go until its big release, early Guardians of the Galaxy reactions are coming in and, as we told you yesterday, they’re tremendously positive.  There’s always been a chance this whole thing could go south considering it’s such an unusual and highly stylized Marvel film, but ever since that very first trailer dropped back in February, it really did seem like James Gunn pulled it off.  At this point we’ve got loads of quality pr ...

Reilly and Glenn Close from Nova Corps and the trio of bad guys led by Ronan (Lee Pace) also got their own character posters, but ...
