RACCOONS IN THE MOVIES: A Voice At Last

After many months of nail-bitingly tense speculation, Marvel Studios finally announced the actor who will voice Rocket Raccoon in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.  That actor is …

Bradley Cooper!

I’m okay with this.  It’s certainly nowhere near as controversial as the recent casting of the next Batman/Bruce Wayne.  Cooper is capable of emoting and can put some personality into his voice, it’s just that it seems like a somewhat generic choice.  Still, he can do comedy with a lot of personality and Rocket will likely be a more comedic role so I think this will turn out well.

Also recently announced is that Vin Diesel will voice the not overly talkative sentient tree companion of Rocket Raccoon, Groot.  Considering he did the voice of the Iron Giant, I can see that working.
