John C. Reilly Takes Guardians of the Galaxy

Ronan, who first appeared in Fantastic Four #65 in 1967, is a law enforcement representative for an alien race, the Kree.

Reilly, who recently starred in the Disney hit Wreck-It Ralph, joins Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Lee Pace, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan and Benicio Del Toro in the August 1, 2014 release.

UPDATE: It seems that Deadline had some misinformation regarding Reilly’s role. While he has indeed been cast in the sci-fi adventure, he’ll actually be playing Nova Corps leader Rhomann Dey.
