With production for Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” already ongoing, more casting rumors are surfacing. On Thursday, August 22, movie news site Collider revealed a hot rumor circulating James Gunn’s film: Bradley Cooper to be voicing the character Rocket Raccoon.
Nothing has been confirmed just yet, but it’s what the source is reporting. “Vin Diesel has been strongly hinting that he’ll be voicing Groot,” Collider reports. “Now it looks like a fittingly left-field choice might be eyed for the role of Rocket: Bradley Cooper.”
The character Rocket Raccoon is described as, “a little gnarled, miserable, pretty angry creature because there’s nothing else like him and it’s not easy to be.” If the rumors are correct, Marvel producers have extended Bradley Cooper an offer to take on the role.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” cast already includes Christ Pratt, Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Lee pace, and John C. Reilly.
