bradley-cooperGuardians of the Galaxy has officially cast the voice for Rocket Raccoon: Bradley Cooper. This will be the first voiceover work for the Academy Award-nominated actor. It’s not clear if he will be doing motion-capture for the character as well.

Now the question is, can he do justice to the accent? Rocket Raccoon has a rough British accent in the comics. Can Cooper do it? Or are they going to change it?

Guardians of the Galaxy will be released August 1, 2014. What do you think about the casting? Excited? Confused as to why they didn’t cast someone with a real British accent? Let us know in the comments below!
