Today has been a big day for Guardians Of The Galaxy news. After the Guardians Of The Galaxy trailer got everyone fired up at Disney D23 Expo yesterday, Vin Diesel posted a photo of Groot to Facebook, hinting that might be his much speculated upon Marvel Studios role.
Now, GuardTheGalaxy.com is reporting that an inside source has indicated that Sean Gunn will be voicing the role of Rocket Raccoon. While there are lots of rumors that circulate on the Internet that never pan out, one of the things that gives some credence to the report is that director James Gunn has previously dropped some hints that his brother Sean might have a big role in Guardians Of The Galaxy.
When a fan recently asked James Gunn if his brother had a cameo in Guardians Of The Galaxy, James Gunn responded, "Cameo? Not quite." When another fan asked if he was right in thinking that Sean was in the movie, James Gunn responded, "Do you think?"
Rocket Raccoon would definitely be a role that would be considered more than a cameo, but then again, there are probably a lot of roles that would fall into that classification. Sean Gunn is best known for playing Kirk Gleason on the Gilmore Girls.
