We've heard a lot of people from the cast of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy talk about Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon, but he hasn't really talked about it himself yet. In a recent interview with Collider, the actor opened up a little bit about the gun-toting rodent he will be voicing, and the type of voice they are trying to develop for the character.
"Well, I like James a lot and it really was about him and then talking to him about the guy. I wasn't familiar with the comic at all and then I really loved it, and I love that character. He's incredible that character. You know, one thing we debated was he's seen as a cockney accent sometimes. So we talked about whether we'd do that or do this sort of other guy from the city a little bit."
When Cooper was asked if they figured a voice for the character, Cooper said,
"Yeah, we're in the middle of it."
So it sounds like they are almost there. I can't wait to see what they came up with! Cooper went on to talk about the footage he's seen of the film so far saying,
"Chris Pratt is unbelievable and Zoe is great, she's always great. Chris Pratt just blew me away. I thought he's just like the perfect guy."
Guardians of the Galaxy features a great team of misfit characters who come together to save the galaxy. The movie also stars Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Djimon Honsou, Gregg Henry, Glenn Close, and John C. Reilly. It comes out in theaters on August 1st, 2014!
