Bradley Cooper Talks More 'Rocket Raccoon' And Music On Set Of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Comparing the talking, gun-totting Rocket Raccoon to Tommy DeVito in the classic gangster film Goodfellas, Bradley Cooper also discusses music played on the Guardians of the Galaxy set. Check it out

"It's been great. The great thing about [Gunn] is that I tried to set the ground rules early. I said, 'Look, you don't have to sugar-coat anything. Just tell me exactly what you want,'" Bradley Cooper told MTV News during the press junket for American Hustle. "I think he was basically going like, 'Did you think I would do anything else?' But he's been great! I love Rocket!" While Rocket Raccoon has been described as the heart of Guardians of the Galaxy, Cooper thinks it's Chris Pratt's role as Peter Quill/Star-Lord. "He's Han Solo and Luke combined," he said. "I think Rocket is dynamic. He's the sort of Joe Pesci in 'Goodfellas' guy. You need Henry Hill."

“Guardians of the Galaxy,” the next epic adventure from Marvel Studios, is directed by James Gunn from his screenplay, with a story by Nicole Perlman and Gunn, and the film will introduce audiences to a whole new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The all-star cast includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Academy Award® winner Benicio del Toro as The Collector, Academy Award nominee John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, and six-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close as Nova Prime, with Vin Diesal as Groot and Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is scheduled for release August 1, 2014!

i hope they don't screw this up. they have a fan base of 14 rabid people. they can get nasty
AlexLaChiusa - 12/9/2013, 3:46 PM
I'm just want hear how he sounds as Rocket. Probably won't find out until around the Super Bowl. I can't see the trailer being released any earlier than that.
The14thAvenger - 12/9/2013, 3:49 PM
not available from your location ahhhh,]could we get a transcript or youtube version please?
MexicanSuperman - 12/9/2013, 3:50 PM
I'm sure he will sound great, but I feel he is wasted on Rocket Raccoon.
MrCBM56 - 12/9/2013, 3:52 PM
Can't wait for his performance!
MexicanSuperman - 12/9/2013, 3:57 PM
What is this the Age of Gusto?
ezio619 - 12/9/2013, 3:57 PM
mercwithamouth-what did u think of the 4 superhero films this year

Skeem-i dont think he menat like quality or as good as goodfellas, i think he means the tone or vibe gae off a goodfellas vibe to him, especially rocket reminded him of the joe pesci character in that film
marvel72 - 12/9/2013, 4:19 PM
all fake gusto's must be destroyed.
VISIONaryNPa - 12/9/2013, 4:28 PM
@Marvel72 i concur. all these fake gustos need to be destroyed...

This is great. love that he's really enoying the role!
TelaVizion - 12/9/2013, 4:43 PM
GotG has the chance to be the best Marvel film after Avengers.... Which will knock Iron Man 3 to 3rd place.
JoJo1982 - 12/9/2013, 4:43 PM
I'm liking what I'm hearing

Plus comparing Rocket to Joe Pesci in Goodfellas is perfect

Joe Pesci was also great in Casino
Omarvls - 12/9/2013, 4:44 PM
Like I've said in the past this is Marvel's biggest gamble EVER 10 times more then Thor If it works Marvel has a 2nd type Franchise in the same Universe if it Fails I don't think we see the Inhumans or any other Cosmic Type Marvel film so I'm rooting for it I think a NOVA film can be EPIC
Omarvls - 12/9/2013, 4:45 PM
If it succeeds I see a sequel in 2017
Guardians of the Galaxy 'War of Kings'
JoJo1982 - 12/9/2013, 4:45 PM
Damn nevermind Mp79 said it for me, lol

I think Joe Pesci beat the world record of saying the most F bomb in a movie

Those are type of movies I grew up, it would be great to see a cb character that similar to him

So I can expect sociopathic tendencies. Ya know joking about alien looks while shooting them in the back of the head?
That will be interesting.


YES!!! That would be PERFECT!!!
fatcobra - 12/9/2013, 4:48 PM
Not too be nitpicky, but Pesci's character in Goodfellas name wasn't Henry Hill. That was Ray Liotta. Whatever. Still looking forward to this movie!
JoJo1982 - 12/9/2013, 4:50 PM

That's part if the plan, when they do that, they be lightyears past any other studio
JatevinM - 12/9/2013, 4:58 PM
This movie and Ant-man can go either way. It can either prove that Marvel can do just about anything or they can completely destroy Marvel and the entire CBM genre
MegatronLP9 - 12/9/2013, 5:00 PM
I bet they will do the same thing with him that they're doing with Vin, they might just use his voice and later cast him in a bigger role. I Think He Might be in Talks to be DR.STRANGE, who knows. Anything can happen, but its just my opinion
fanDomX - 12/9/2013, 5:02 PM
Still think August is a bad month for a film like this to open.

My son asked Santa for a Rocket Raccoon for Christmas. He has all the kids at his school freaking out about this movie.
JoJo1982 - 12/9/2013, 5:16 PM

Me too
ATrueHero1987 - 12/9/2013, 5:24 PM
Ok, we're getting a Godzilla trailer tomorrow. So Marvel, it would be nice to drop a GOTG trailer before Christmas...
NoAssemblyReqd - 12/9/2013, 5:25 PM
Expect at least one "I'm not a f$^/%×g raccoon!" joke.
CamWE7 - 12/9/2013, 5:28 PM
SO freakin STOKED for this movie
The14thAvenger - 12/9/2013, 5:28 PM
James gunn has said on his Facebook that we're not getting a trailer until next year
ezio619 - 12/9/2013, 5:30 PM
TRUEHERO-james gunn has said that we wont get a trailer before next year, HE wants the visual effects to look as good asthey would in the film,im thinking next month or most likely februaru with robocop or the superbowl
Starkasm - 12/9/2013, 5:33 PM
Come on Trollem. You can do better than that.
JoJo1982 - 12/9/2013, 5:42 PM
Marvel studios usually have their first trailer 6 to 7 months before its released so a trailer should be next month or Feb.

trudy- "nah, nah, nah, nah.. you insulted him a little bit". Haha, motherf*cker's face looked like chewed burger when they finished with 'im.
cipher - 12/9/2013, 5:56 PM
Now I'm thinkin' about The Sopranos duck scene. Heh, that's pretty random.
MisterNiceGuy - 12/9/2013, 6:02 PM
"that chris pratt character".... oh boy, did he even read the script?
ezio619 - 12/9/2013, 6:09 PM
MisterNic-well he does like 4 movies ayear and he seems kind of tired in that interview so maybe blanked out on it, its human too
MisterNiceGuy - 12/9/2013, 6:22 PM
im kidding
OrgasmicPotatoe - 12/9/2013, 6:42 PM
When is the trailer dropping ? Seriously guys, give us something !
ManCalledSting - 12/9/2013, 6:48 PM
I can't seem to get excited for this movie.....ah well. I'm sure it'll be a smashing comedy.
CharlesLord - 12/9/2013, 7:11 PM
I think that line about Pesci might be a description of how hes gonna sound. Rocket sounded like that in Ult Spiderman. Cant wait for the trailer
vtopa - 12/9/2013, 7:15 PM
Bradley has an excellent take on this. Makes me feel better about the awful casting of Saldana.
