"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" was one of those uber polarizing flicks that a viewer either completely loved or just could not appreciate one bit. But no matter which side of that 10-strip LSD sheet line you fell on, you gotta appreciate this 60-second rendition of the mind-melting movie.
Based on Hunter S. Thompson's well-documented* explorations of the mind-altered human condition, "Fear and Loathing" featured Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro as a journo type and his legal eagle on the ride of their lives — okay, probably just one of many — during a trip, literally and figuratively, out to Sin City.
While they were supposed to be reporting on some motorcycle race in town, the pair quickly ditched that assignment in favor of a "gonzo journalism" hallucinogen binge which resulted in them dealing with everything from lizard-headed barkeeps to the District Attorney Convention on Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. »

John C. Reilly has joined the increasingly eclectic and unique cast for James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. As rumored previously, he will play Rhomann Dey, the leader of the Nova Corps who anoints Richard Rider as Nova in the comics. That seems to hint that Nova, or at least the Corps, will be in the film, and that Marvel is clearly thinking massive in terms of scope for this movie. He may just be the Guardians answer to Agent Coulson, linking the Guardians to the rest of the cosmic Marvel universe.
It was rumored that he would be Ronan the Accuser, the big bad Kree villain, but that didn’t come to fruition. The film now stars John C. Reilly, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Ophelia Lovibond and Michael Rooker. The movie opens August 1st, 2014. »

Another quality actor joins the cast for Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy as John C Reilly's involvement is confirmed...
Here's something that was heavily rumoured a few weeks back, and finally seems to be locked in. It seems as though John C Reilly joining the cast of the soon-to-shoot Marvel project Guardians Of The Galaxy is a done deal. He has signed on to play Rhomann Dey, the head of Nova Corps.
The film is an ambitious project that seems like a tricky sell, but given how well Thor worked out when it faced similar levels of doubt ahead of its release, it's certainly worth keeping an open mind. James Gunn, who is helmed the project, is a very talented director and he has one hell of a cast at his disposal here to ensure that the film has plenty in its corner. It »
Guardians Of The Galaxy – that upcoming film that has inspired cries of joy from comic book fans and cries of ‘Who are the Guardians of the Galaxy?’ from everyone else – has added yet another big name to its already impressive cast list. John C. Reilly has signed on for Marvel’s Phase Two anchor film.
It was suggested that Reilly was signed on to play the part of Ronan the Accuser, the son of Thanos – that’s the big guy at the end of The Avengers – and a major force in the Marvel Universe. Now there’s confirmation that Reilly is actually Rhomann Dey, the leader of the Nova Corps, an intergalactic military/police force. That means nothing to you? Try this: he’s been described as “the Agent Coulson of the Guardians movies.” Ok, that’s a little better.
Everyone seems to be just a wee bit confused about »

Joss Whedon recently spoke to Empire magazine, revealing that he's already turned in the first draft of "The Avengers 2." And while he's still playing around with the script, he added that the story is now set. According to past statements by Whedon, "The Avengers 2" will feature two new additions to the team, the brother/sister duo Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Whedon said that he likes the characters because he was a fan of them as a kid and likes the fact that they've been both good and evil. The director also previously hinted that members of "Guardians of the Galaxy" won't appear in "The Avengers 2." So it will be interesting to see how the film will tie into the Marvel cinematic universe. Regarding the villain... Whedon said early on that he doesn't want to repeat anything that he did in the first "The Avengers." He said that Thanos will appear in the sequel, »
With a combination of high profile casting reports and consistent and frequent praise from Joss Whedon for its script and direction, Marvel Studios has kept Guardians of the Galaxy at the top of our radar as it prepares to begin shooting in less than two weeks.
In addition to the leads Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista and Zoe Saldana and recently added supporting roles for Benicio Del Toro and Glenn Close, Oscar-nominated John C. Reilly was reported to be in talks with Marvel for a key part that would potentially see him liaising between Earth’s Shield organization and the spacefaring Guardians. As it turns out, at least part of the initial speculation was true.

John C Reilly has been confirmed for Guardians of the Galaxy.
The Chicago actor has been linked with a role in the upcoming Marvel movie project in recent weeks, and his casting has now been confirmed, according to Deadline.
Reilly will portray Rhomann Dey in the film, who is similar to Agent Coulson from the Avengers movies, and will appear in several potential instalments.
The character is the human agent who deals directly between the Guardians and Earth, reporting to Shield about the group's movements.
At first, Deadline reported that Reilly had signed up to play Kree Empire's Ronan 'The Accuser' Dey, but this was later debunked.
In all of the hubbub leading up to this weekend's "Man of Steel," it's easy to forget for a moment that Marvel remains a few steps ahead of DC when it comes to rolling out properties.
John C. Reilly has thrown his country music-loving hat into the superhero ring, signing up for a role in the potential franchise starter "Guardians of the Galaxy," which is scheduled to hit theaters August 1, 2014.
Reilly joins the previously announced eclectic cast that includes Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Lee Pace and Chris Pratt, according to Deadline. Reilly of course is no stranger to Marvel's corporate parent, having voiced the title role in Disney's $471 million hit "Wreck-It Ralph." He's signed up to play the leader of the Nova Corps, the Xandarian warrior Rhomann Dey, one of Marvel Comics' space-based heroes. In the mythology, his dying act was to transfer his powers to human teenager Richard Rider, »

And now, in non-"Man of Steel" news, "Guardians of the Galaxy" has a confirmed casting that we've been crossing our fingers for for almost two weeks now; Deadline has reported that John C. Reilly is officially joining the cast as Nova Corps member Rhomann Dey.
In a curious turn of events, though, they initially reported that he would be playing Ronan the Accuser, which is an entirely different character altogether. Ronan would definitely fit into the film, as he's a big player in Marvel's line of cosmic comics, but he'd also add a whole other group of characters (the Kree) to the film. "Guardians" has gone from starring just the current roster and maybe Thanos, to now incorporating the original Guardians, the whole Nova Corps, and possibly even former Image Comics character Angela. Then there's the matter of who in the galaxy Benicio Del Toro is playing! »

It's now official that John C. Reilly will play Rhomann Dey in Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy," a rep for the actor told TheWrap Friday. James Gunn is set to direct the superhero film, in which a U.S pilot ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons that have something everyone wants.

It had been rumored, but now Deadline confirms that John C. Reilly has been added to the cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which already includes Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Michael Rooker. Reilly will play Ronan the Accuser, a member of the Kree alien race and the leader of the Accuser Corps, which is a group of military governors and jurists. He’s super strong and fast, can sometimes turn invisible, and wields this really cool hammer thing called the “universal weapon.” Also, in some stories, he is the son of Thanos, the major Marvel villain who we saw at the very end of The Avengers and we have speculated might be whom Benicio Del Toro is playing. We’re aware this might sound like Greek, so may we suggest our very useful Guardians of the Galaxy explainer. (There’s a raccoon with a gun! »

It was earlier reported that he would be playing Ronan the Accuser, the Kree Empire's juror and military governor in space, but that information proved to be false.
Here is Marvel's rundown on John C. Reilly's Rhomann Dey.
"Rhomann Dey was the leader of the Nova Corps on the planet Xandar when the planet was destroyed by the space pirate Zorr. Seemingly everyone else was killed in the attack, including Dey's family. Dey swore vengeance on Zorr and chased him across the galaxy, battling him along the way. He became mortally wounded and paralyzed »
[Updated] Casting on James Gunn’s anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy has been coming together very nicely in recent weeks and months, with the blockbuster set to launch a new set of heroes as the penultimate film in Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Falling directly before Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2 on Marvel’s slate, the film has been assembling an absolutely stellar cast. And now Deadline are confirming something we heard a couple weeks back, that John C. Reilly had been offered a part in the movie.
Reilly is now officially set to play Rhomann Dey, the leader of the Nova Corps in the 2014 tentpole.
We had initially heard that the actor would be playing a similarly titled character, Ronan the Accuser in the film. But now it’s been confirmed that he will in fact be playing the role of Rhomann Dey, confirming the part he »

Marvel Studios started building their fortune by hiring unknown or otherwise cheap actors like Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. (hey, he was cheap at the time) to headline their franchises. As they move on to Phase Two and build bigger vaults to hold their riches, though, they're apparently more willing than ever to shell out for some big names. And Guardians of the Galaxy-- an outer-space superhero movie starring a heroic raccoon-- might need the big names to help sell it to audiences who aren't quite ready for the transition. They've already got the likes of Benicio del Toro, Glenn Close and Zoe Saldana on board, and now the role has finally been revealed for one more big name, John C. Reilly. According to Deadline Reilly is playing Ronan "The Accuser" Dey, and I really can't do better to describe him than to lift this information »
Late last month, we learned that John C. Reilly had been offered a role in Marvel’s upcoming superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy. Well now it appears that Reilly will indeed be joining the Marvel universe, as Deadline reports that Reilly has officially signed on to play Ronan the Accuser in the James Gunn-helmed film. In the comics, Ronan is a member of the alien race the Kree and has been portrayed as both villainous and noble at different times. The character possesses superhuman strength and speed, and wields a long hammer-like weapon called the “Universal Weapon,” which can do considerable damage. Ronan has also been portrayed as the son of Thanos in the comics, so it’s possible that Reilly will also play a large role in future Marvel films should the studio decide to tie his character into the big baddie that was gleaned at the end of The Avengers. »

Update: I got it backward. John C. Reilly will play Rhomann Dey, leader of the Nova Corps, in Marvel Studios‘ Guardians Of The Galaxy, the James Gunn-directed franchise launch that stars Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, and Michael Rooker. He’s not playing Ronan the Accuser, the Kree Empire’s badass juror and military governor in space. According to Comicvine.com, here’s the deal on Rhomann Dey: Rhomann Dey was the leader of the Nova Corps on the planet Xandar when the planet was destroyed by the space pirate Zorr. Seemingly everyone else was killed in the attack, including Dey’s family. Dey swore vengeance on Zorr and chased him across the galaxy, battling him along the way. He became mortally wounded and paralyzed after an encounter causing him to seek a replacement who could stop Zorr and make him pay for his crimes. »
