Bradley Cooper Voicing Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy
I was out at a convention today, so a little late getting this up, but Marvel has announced another movie casting choice this week. This time it’s Bradley Cooper who will be voicing Rocket Raccoon, an anthropomorphic raccoon who likes his guns, in next year’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Cooper joins an eclectic cast and characters including Peter Quill played by Chris Pratt, Gamora played by Zoe Saldana and Drax played by former wrestler Dave Bautista. Still to be cast is the voice of Groot, a walking talking tree (trust me it works). Vin Diesel is in talks to provide the voice.
The movie also features Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou and Glenn Close.
Cooper is an Academy Award nominated actor having been nominated for Silver Linings Playbook. He will next be on screen this fall teaming up again with director David O. Russell in American Hustle, which looks amazing. This is Cooper’s first voiceover work.
Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1, 2014.
