Bradley Cooper had this to say about joining the upcoming Marvel project Guardians of the Galaxy and trying to find the right voice for Rocket Raccoon:
“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.”
Cooper also had this to say about the footage he has already seen from the movie:
“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 will be released on August 1, 2014.
