No you are not seeing things. Apparently Bradley Cooper is in the run to voice Rocket Raccoon for the upcoming Comic Book film: Guardians of the Galaxy. The Wrap reports that The Hangover star is in talks to voice the intergalactic rodent. If Cooper accept the role, he could be voicing in the booth along with Vin Diesel; who is up to voice the character Groot. Plus, this would mark the first time that Bradley Cooper would lend his voice for a animated role.
Is Bradley Cooper a bad choice for Rocket Racoon? No. However, will Cooper voice the character? Part of this examiner is thinking probably not. The issue is not would Bradley Cooper voice Rocket, but more of can he voice the character. Bradley Cooper is a very busy man. Despite that the role wouldn't take a lot out of Cooper physically, he would still have to find time to play the character; and could be where things get complicated.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy tells the story of a band of space pirates that turn into a peacekeeping team. The film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Micheal Rooker, Lee Pace, Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C.Reilly, Olivia Lovibond, Gregg Henry and Glenn Close.
Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1,2014.
