Bradley Cooper Dishes On Voicing 'Rocket Raccoon' For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Finally, amid promotion for his new film, Bradley Cooper has been asked about voicing Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy - he comments on his accent and what from footage he's seen is he impressed by!
“I liked James [Gunn] a lot and it really was about him, and talking to him about the guy (Rocket Raccoon),” Bradley Cooper told Collider when they asked if he debated accepting the Guardians of the Galaxy role. “I wasn't familiar with the comic at all, and then I really loved it. I love that character, he's an incredible character. One thing we debated was he's seen as a cockney accent sometimes. So, we talked about whether we'd do that, or this other guy [accent] from the city,” said the American Hustler actor, confirming that they've decided on an accent - “Yes, we're in the middle of it.” When asked for his impressions of the footage he's seen, Cooper didn't hesitant saying “Chris Pratt is unbelievable! And Zoe Saldana's great! She's always great. Chris Pratt just blew me away, I thought he's like the perfect guy.” What do you think?
