Earlier this year we heard reports that John C. Reilly was in advanced talks to join
Guardians Of The Galaxy
, and now
has confirmed that the star has officially boarded James Gunn's sci-fi spectacular.
We were beginning to wonder whether there had been a spanner in the works of Reilly's negotiations, particularly since a number of other cast members have been added in the interim, but it seems our fears were happily unfounded.
Reilly will be playing a character named Rhomann Dey, a battle-scarred Nova Corps operative who will work in tandem with Glenn Close's as yet unannounced character . .
Reilly's confirmation adds even more talent to an ensemble cast positively groaning with interesting names. It's certainly the most eclectic group we can recall seeing assembled for a superhero movie.
Directed by Gunn and co-starring Chris Pratt, Benicio Del Toro, Zoe Saldana and Lee Pace, Guardians Of The Galaxy will open in the UK on 1 August 2014.
