We’ve been wondering who would play Rocket Raccoon in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and now it sounds like the furry little ass-kicker might’ve finally found his voice.
The folks at Latino Review are reporting Marvel has actor Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Limitless) at the top of the short list to bring the little guy to life. According to their sources, Marvel has made the offer and they’re waiting for Cooper to sign or pass.
Cooper is a fairly hot property these days, and has a distinct voice that could fit well in the deep-space epic. Plus, how cool would it be to have two of the biggest actors on the film — including Vin Diesel as Groot —voicing a raccoon and an overgrown tree, respectively?
That’d be pretty awesome.
What do you think of this casting rumor? Do you want Cooper to get the gig?
