Eye Candy Break: Guardians of the Galaxy Casts Another Character

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | April 23, 2013 | Comments ()


I'm sick, yesterday there was a bomb scare at the high school where my husband teaches, Ohio weather can't seem to make a decision, and last week was a pox on the ass of Ros the Exposition Whore. All of these things have culminated in my presenting this casting news with lots of pretty to accompany it.

The first bit of casting news concerns Ophelia Lovibond (No Strings Attached) being cast in Guardians of the Galaxy. The beauty is supposedly cast as the aide to The Collector, but I haven't seen definitive proof of that.


Naomi Watts will be starring alongside Bill Murray in St. Vincent De Van Nuys. Who will she be playing? The Russian prostitute that Murray's character frequents. Murray plays a less than perfect role model to a 12-year-old boy that he helps care for while the boy's mother, Melissa McCarthy, works several jobs. Chris O'Dowd plays a priest, but not the kind that the boy has to worry about. I don't think.


Tom Hiddleston will be joining Hayley Atwell in the 1930s dramancewar movie, Close Enough. Hiddleston will portray war photographer Robert Capa and Atwell will play Gerda Toro, also a war photographer. Actually, she was the first lady to be a war photographer. The two fall in love and are very gorgeous and whatnot.


Solace is a psychological thriller starring Colin Farrell as a serial killer, Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the FBI agent chasing him, and Anthony Hopkins as a doctor pulled out of retirement to work on the case. Abbie Cornish has now been added to the cast, though her role hasn't been announced. She's probably someone's girlfriend or wife. Damn it. Anyway, the big twist to Solace? The characters played by Farrell and Hopkins have....psychic abilities.

Last of all, Renny Harlin's Hercules 3D, starring Kellan Lutz, has added Liam McIntyre ("Spartacus: War of the Damned") to the project. McIntyre will play a trusted captain to Lutz's Hercules.

    Chris O’Dowd's face confuses me. Seriously, go back up to that picture and cover half of his face with your hand. Left side: handsome man! Right side: creepy man who eats toddlers.

  • e jerry powell

    Bootay. OH HELLS YEAH.

    I would never be worried about Chris O'Dowd as a priest. Even if I were an altar boy. Because I'm slutty that way.

  • Gabs

    That header picture makes me happy in my heart.

  • I love Colin Farrell in Martin McDonagh films. I'm not sure I've liked him much in any other film.

  • Mythra Sun

    It's a sad day indeed when Spartacus had to play second fiddle to Emmett Cullen

  • Maguita NYC

    THIS!!! I really thought I misread the announcement. However you look at it though, adding Liam McIntyre can only attract interest in the movie. I might watch it after all.

  • Mythra Sun

    Well I will definitely be watching it though I may have to go alone and incognito as i can't bear the shame of telling people "Hey, let's go see the new Kellan Lutz movie"

  • NoPantsMcLane

    I got all excited about Colin Farrell in Guardians of the Galaxy now. That would have been cool.

  • VictorianRayLiotta

    So, Richard Armitage isn't in this? *confused*

  • Mrs. Julien


  • Mrs. Julien

    Even better?

  • Ismellsomethingfetid

    God I love Tuesdays

  • Mrs. Julien

    Kellan Lutz's IQ is exactly equal to the number of defined muscles one can see on his arms and torso.

  • Maguita NYC

    You're too generous Mrs. J.

  • Whipping Fanny

    Colin Farrell makes me hot and bothered.

  • Maguita NYC

    Add Jeffrey Dean Morgan into the mix, and we've got heatstroke.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    I could watch that gif All. Damn. Day. Mmmm. Dat Ass indeed.

  • lonolove

    I cannot wait for the sequel. Evans is going to have a 'dat ass' off with GSP, and he is going to lose. WE ARE THE WINNERS IN THIS SCENARIO!!!

  • MrsAtaxxia

    I concur, we are the winners whenever Dat Ass is present.

  • BendinIntheWind

    Aaaaaand boom goes the dynamite.
