Bradley Cooper has reportedly been approached by Marvel to voice Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy.
El Mayimbe of Latino-Review is reporting that his “trusty sources out of England” have told him that Cooper has been offered the voice role.
No word yet on if the offer has been accepted, but with Guardians in the middle of filming in the UK, and a release date now less than a year away, it would seem a good time to announce the final piece of the superhero group casting.
Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, and Dave Bautista as Drax, with Vin Diesel rumoured to be voicing Groot. Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Antonio Banderas, John C. Reilly and Glenn Close also appear. The film will be released on August 1 2014.
