Bradley Cooper might not have seemed like the most likely choice to play the weapons-happy, genetically-altered Rocket Raccoon when James Gunn first cast him for Guardians of the Galaxy, but now it's impossible to imagine anyone else lending their voice to his animated antics.

Marvel released this new BTS video revealing a spirited dubbing session with Cooper getting deep into character and belting out his sarcastic lines with inspired energy. Vocal work is a tough, competitive business and strong performances play a vital role in a film's ultimate reception.

Lend us your ears and listen to Cooper bring the feisty CGI furball to life for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, then launch straight into Marvel's B-roll reel Part Two.
