Rocket Raccoon Finds His Voice

rocketraccoonMarvel Studios made it official today, announcing that Bradley Cooper — of Silver Lingings Playbook and The Hangover fame — has signed to provide the voice for Rocket Raccoon in the now-filming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

I must confess that my initial gut reaction is disappointment, because I feel that Cooper brings nothing in particular to the role except name recognition. Now producers will be able to trumpet “Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper” as part of the cast, which, aside from Zoe Saldana and (arguably) Vin Diesel, isn’t exactly brimming with household names in Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Lee Evans and Karen Gillan.
