In a new interview in support of his film American Hustle, Bradley Cooper briefly discussed finding a voice for Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, saying that any questions he had about taking on a big superhero movie were put to rest by a conversation with the film's director James Gunn.
"I liked James a lot and it really was about him, and talking to him about [Rocket Raccoon]," Bradley Cooper told Collider. “I wasn't familiar with the comic at all, and then I really loved it. I love that character; he's an incredible character. One thing we debated was he's seen as a Cockney accent sometimes, so we talked about whether we'd do that, or this other [accent] from the city.”
