Jim Carrey could be taking a supporting role in Marvel's upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy.

The Canadian comedian is one of the actors being considered to add some humour to James Gunn's film, along with fellow funnyman Adam Sandler, reported LA Times' Latino Review.

"Marvel is asking for the availability of both Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler," a source said.

It is thought that the comics would fit into the likely motion-capture roles of Rocket Raccoon (a talking raccoon) or Groot (a giant tree), although it is not certain whether there are two parts to be filled.

Jim is not averse to superhero properties, as he will appear as Sal Bertolinni (Colonel Stars and Stripes) in Kick-Ass 2.

Wes Bentley, Chris Lowell (The Help, Veronica Mars), and Cam Gigandet (Twilight) are the latest batch of actors being asked to read for the role of Star-Lord, a master strategist and combat expert.

Production on Guardians Of The Galaxy is due to begin in London during the summer, for a release in 2014.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
