Movie News: John C. Reilly may join Guardians of the Galaxy
According to Hitfix, it’s been reported that John C. Reilly has been offered the role of Rhomann Dey in Guardians of the Galaxy, which is due out next summer sometime. He hasn’t accepted the offer yet and no one seems to be sure if he will as the role is being described as “a big commitment”.
According the the report and what Marvel is looking for, Rhomann Dey is the liaison between the Guardians the S.H.I.E.L.D. which makes the role kind of important and has potential to be something more.
Normally I would say that this doesn’t fit Reilly at all but he does have some good skills and given the tone of the Guardians of the Galaxy, which is very different than what we’ve seen so far, I think he’ll actually fit in just right. This will most likely be a more silly movie given a few of the characters and with the comedic tone this franchise has taken, while being series, Reilly could fit in.
What do you guys think?
