John C Reilly has reportedly signed up to star in Guardians Of The Galaxy.

The Step Brothers star will play Rhomann Dey, an intergalactic soldier who gives powers to human Richard Rider, according to Deadline.

He joins the cast of the Marvel film which already includes Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace and Michael Rooker and will be directed by James Gunn.

As Rhomann Dey, John will be leader of the Nova Corps on planet Xandar, whose home and family were destroyed by space pirate Zorr.

Rhomann becomes mortally wounded by Zorr and chooses a human, Richard, to inherit his powers and defeat the evil pirate.

Guardians Of The Galaxy is due to be released in summer 2014.

John can be seen later this year in comedy sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
