In a recent interview with Collider, Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper discussed his role in the upcoming film adaptation of Marvel Comics’ Guardians of the Galaxy, which is the gun-toting, mealy-mouthed combative critter, Rocket Raccoon.
“Well, I like James [Gunn] a lot,” explains Cooper, “and it really was about him and then talking to him about the guy. I wasn’t familiar with the comic at all and then I really loved it, and I love that character. He’s incredible, that character.”
“You know, one thing we debated was how he’s seen as [having] a cockney accent sometimes. So we talked about whether we’d do that or do this sort of other guy from the city a little bit.”
