Glenn Close in talks for Guardians of the Galaxy


Coolest, strangest casting of the day.

Glenn Close is in talks to join “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy”, James Gunn’s movie manifestation of the comic book series, according to Deadline.

Close, hot off TV’s “Damages”, will play a leader in the Nova Corp – sort of like space’s equivalent of the police.

It was reported last week that John C.Reilly was up for a role as a member of that team, too.

Close, whose vast and diverse credits include “Fatal Attraction”, “Hamlet” and “Albert Nobbs”, makes her superhero movie debut here.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” stars Chris Pratt, Michael Rooker, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace and Dave Bautista.
