It's being reported that Marvel Studios is in talks with Bradley Cooper to be the voice of Rocket Raccoon in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
The Wrap states a person familiar with the project has confirmed to them Cooper's potential involvement in that an offer is in place and talks are ongoing.
In addition to Rocket Raccoon, the voice of Groot has yet to be cast as well, with many speculating that Vin Diesel may have that role.
As production on Guardians of the Galaxy is underway it's not unheard of for voice actors to be cast nearing end of filming as they are only required for a few days in the sound studio and not needed on set.
It remains to be seen if James Gunn will be keeping with Rocket Raccoon's British accent, with UK natives Simon Pegg and Jason Statham considered fan-favorite picks to voice the character.
The Guardians of the Galaxy movie has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer and Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Lee Pace as Ronan, Djimon Hounsu as Korath the Pursuer, with John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey and Glen Close as Nova Prime.
Also rumored for the movie are Ophelia Lovibond and Enzo Cilenti.
