Biz Break: Rocket Raccoon May Be Voiced By A Real E.I.L.F.!

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | August 23, 2013 | Comments ()


That’s right! Bradley Cooper is rumored to be mulling over an offer to voice the enigma wrapped in a striped pelt that is Rocket Raccoon for Guardians of the Galaxy. I am entirely on board with this bit of casting. Bear in mind, I know nothing about the character except species and Wikipedia information. However, as someone who once gleefully referred to Cooper as an Emu not out of adoration but annoyance, I’ve grown to love him and he’s grown into his face. It’s a win for both of us, really.


For those who don’t know, Rocket Raccoon is the starship captain of the vessel Rack ‘n’ Ruin. His first mate is Wal Rus. He’s a talking…wait for it…WALRUS! The two were genetically engineered, along with many other animals, to take care of the mentally ill humans on their home planet of Halfworld. Rocket was a ranger of his home planet, protecting it from threats. He joins the Guardians of the Galaxy because Star Lord asked him to do so. Ranger Rocket Raccoon.

In other news, Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms, yo, and I’m still processing him as Batman.

That’s, um…that’s pretty much all I have for you. Uh. Please enjoy this gif and your weekend.

    And all that still seems more "filmable" than Black Panther?

    Ok, Marvel.

  • I thought he was a "Pocket" Raccoon, and now I want one. I would hide him in my pocket and unleash him on my enemies when they least expect it!

    The once and future Emu.

    Still annoying as hell.
