Guardians of the Galaxy has apparently nabbed another cast member. -- At least, that's what the would-be cast member in question is claiming. British actor, Enzo, Cilenti recently took to Twitter to tease his apparent joining of the cast for Marvel's big-screen space odyssey.
Cilenti's resume is quite deep, but may be best remembered for his stint on HBO's Rome, Prisoner Wives, and numerous supporting roles in films. He's recently appeared in The Rum Diary with Johnny Depp and has a role in this summer's Kick-Ass 2. He is also married to the gorgeous actress of the Resident Evil films, Sienna Guillory. While Cilenti did not indicate specifically who he would be playing, the role in Guardians will nevertheless be his highest profile project, thus far.
As Cilenti's teastastic tweet states:
"I may or may not be in
#Guardiansofthegalaxy. I am sworn to secrecy so can't say. In entirely unrelated news, "I am".
...And that is the extent of the reveal. It certainly seemed like an excited tweet, which makes one wonder how major of a role he's procured. At the moment, the cast is headlined by Chris Pratt as leader of the galactic super-team, joined by fellow teammates, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, and Dave Bautista. Only two vacancies remain with the confirmed members of the primary team and they both happen to be CGI animated characters, one of which (Rocket Raccon) was rumored to be voiced by comedic stars Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler. That leaves the voice of giant tree alien, Groot as Cilenti's only possibility for being part of the team. -- Of course, his role could be anyone. With Lee Pace cast as the still-unnamed villain (The Controller is the dominant rumor,) and Ophelia Lovibond cast for a mysterious role, the field is still quite open for characters Cilenti could be set to play.
Guardians of the Galaxy, for all we know, may be sizing up Enzo Cilenti for the role of intergalactic urinal scrubber when it hits theaters on August 1, 2014.
