While we await word on who will portray the tree man and talking raccoon in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, more casting news is trickling in. HitFix reports that John C. Reilly has been offered the role of Rhomann Dey in the upcoming film. Dey is essentially the Guardians-equivalent to Agent Coulson, a human agent assigned to keeping them in line and reporting back to S.H.I.E.L.D. about their adventures.
The name Rhomann Dey may ring bells for nuuuurds familiar with the comic books, as he was also the superhero known as Nova. There is no confirmation whether this already over-stuffed film will include that storyline but this whole thing seems suspicious. How are you going to cast John C. Reilly in a Marvel film and not have him play MODOK?
There’s just so much head.
