Bradley Cooper Speaks Up About Rocket Raccoon

It took a long time for fans to learn who would voice Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, but even with Bradley Cooper cast in the role, there’s still no telling what the Marvel character will sound like. In fact, Cooper himself isn’t even sure.

“He’s seen as a cockney accent sometimes,” the actor told Collider about Rocket’s voice, “so we talked about whether we’d do that or do this sort of other guy from the city a little bit.”

It sounds like Cooper, director James Gunn and Marvel are still debating exactly how Rocket will sound in the space adventure. One think that’s not a question mark, however, is Cooper’s affection for the character.

“I wasn’t familiar with the comic at all and then I really loved it,” he said, “and I love that character. He’s incredible, that character.”

Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters on Aug. 1, 2014.

    his sort of other guy from the city a little bit

    Which city? And also isn’t the very definition of cockney as someone from the Britains largest city?

    Keep him Brit, but be wary of making him sound like the Geiko gekko…

    Make sure he chitters like a racoon. Probably speaks fast. If I was Bradley I’d watch videos and watch how they act and sound. Then apply an accent that way.
