John C. Reilly up for a role in Guardians of the Galaxy

May. 28, 2013by:

When I was scrolling through some news outlets, there was one piece that I do a double take on to make sure I wasn't seeing things.

"John C. Reilly up for a role in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY?"

What? Really? Reilly has voiced an animated game baddie and played several other colorful characters in the flesh...but a comic book character? Intriguing.

The role is question is that of Rhomann Dey, who would be like the Agent Coulson to GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Dey, former leader of Nova Corps serves as a go-between reporting on the activities of the Guardians to S.H.I.E.L.D. This means that Reilly could potentially take part in several other Marvel flicks.

There's also news that Hugh Laurie, Alan Rickman, and Ken Watanabe are being looked at to serve as a colleague to Reilly's Dey.

Anytime a great actor is up for a role, I'm happy

John C. Reilly's excelled in both comedy and drama so any director would be glad to have him. I'd like to see Hugh Laurie in more roles, also Alan Rickman . . . as long as he's not doing the sarcastic Hans Gruber/Severus Snape thing. He's done that far too often onscreen.

He's a solid actor who can do drama and comedy very well, but he's far from being my first choice for a character and film like this. I do like the idea of casting Hugh Laurie in a part in the film. The guy needs to be in more movies.

Uhm, this better be just a voice over because Riley looks like a bunch of mashed together turkey meat.

Just nit-picking, but jew-fro is usually reserved for, you know, people who are Jewish.
