Rumour: Rocket Raccoon Role Offered To Bradley Cooper

hangover_cooperI guess it’s obvious that Guardians of the Galaxy is being filmed with a stand-in Rocket Raccoon, be that a diminutive actor, a stuffed toy or a tennis ball on a stick. Sooner or later, though, he’s going to need his final voice and, as far as we know, Marvel have yet to sign somebody for the gig.

According to a new rumour – a Latino Review rumour, as it happens – the role has been offered to Bradley Cooper.

They’re not saying Cooper has the role, nor are they saying he’s just a name on a list. According to this report, either we’ll be getting Bradley Cooper, or Bradley Cooper will say no. And with the relatively limited time commitment required to do a voiceover, I can’t see “scheduling issues” getting in the way here.

Last time Latino Review spoke out on this casting they put Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey in the frame…

Meanwhile, director James Gunn made a Facebook update about the film’s music, and it seems they’re doing something a little unusual:

Grateful to be working with my favorite composer, Tyler Bates, on Guardians of the Galaxy. Unlike most films, Tyler writes huge chunks of the score first so that I can actually film to the music. During action scenes and huge dramatic moments we blare the score on set so that the cast, crew, and camera can move in harmony with the music. Music is often an afterthought in film, but never for us. And everything Tyler’s done so far has been amazing!

So, picture this: Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana going toe-to-toe with Karen Gillan and Lee Pace while an imaginary Raccoon runs around and Tyler Bates‘ score pumps out of the speakers. Sounds like a great set to visit.
