Recently we reported on a rumor that Marvel was looking at Bradley Cooper to voice Rocket Raccoon, and showing that more often than not where there is a rumor there’s a shred of truth: Marvel is reporting that Cooper has gotten the part.
Marvel made it known on their official website that the recent Oscar nominee for Silver Linings Playbook is set to head into the voice booth to morph into the fabled badass with rings around his eyes. Better make some room in that recording studio as Vin Diesel is Groot!
Currently filming, Guardians of the Galaxy seems to be getting some “pretty good stuff,” according to star Chris Pratt. And with a cast that includes Zoe Saldana, David Bautista and Benicio del Toro… this is shaping up to be one of the best ensembles assembled in 2014.
Cooper is a busy actor, as he was just seen in the newly released American Hustle trailer and was most recently seen in Place Beyond the Pines.
