Here's What Bradley Cooper Sounds Like as the Voice of Rocket Raccoon in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Guardians of the Galaxy will not be released until August 1st, 2014, but the marketing folks took advantage of a pop-culture lull during the Olympics to launch their killer new trailer, which has a certain someone wondering if a Chris Pratt man crush is officially acceptable. (It is.)

One thing we didn’t hear in the new trailer, however, was the voice of Rocket Raccoon, which is being provided by Bradley Cooper. The idea of a machine-gun wielding raccoon in a legit action movie sounds silly, but the image of him makes total sense in the context of Guardians of the Galaxy. But how about once the raccoon begins to speak.

We only have one line with which to make an assessment (“This one here is our booty,” I think), but I think he’s going to be just fine, thank you very much.

    I'm just excited to hear what Groot sounds like, because he looks amazing.

  • Bob Genghis Khan

    Keep your ears ready then, because rumor has it he only has one line.

  • foolsage

    He is a plant monster of few words.

  • Finance_Nerd

    Is it "Hodor"?

  • I remember seeing a clip from a cartoon somewhere that had the voice somewhat gruff and British (think Ray Winstone). That worked too well.
    Seemed to fit the character.

  • Ray Winstone is like Worcestershire sauce; Everything is better when they're included.

    Agreed. It's also the angle they took with his voice acting in the fighting game Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but went a bit raspier with it. I was actually a little surprised with the Emu usage - not that he's a bad choice by any means, just that Marvel already had some kind of characterization for RR's voice that seemed to be working as is.

    So he sounds like Bradley Cooper? I was kinda hoping they'd have gone for Bert from The Racoons:

  • Bob Genghis Khan

    No, no ,no no. He clearly sounds like a LOUDER Bradley Cooper.
