He’s been hungover and he’s been nominated for an Oscar. Now Bradley Cooper may be getting animated as a Marvel character in Guardians of the Galaxy. According to a report from Marvel’s official website, the Silver Linings Playbook and Hangover star is joining James Gunn’s ensemble flick about the Avengers B-team.
Academy Award-nominated actor Bradley Cooper has officially joined the cast of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” lending his voice to the fan-favorite raccoon that will join Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax (Dave Bautista) on their epic adventure.
The rumor of Cooper’s involvement with Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy started earlier this month when Latino Review reported that Cooper was in talks with the studio to voice the role of Rocket Raccoon. His addition to an already outstanding cast only raises the level of interest in the film.
Guardians of the Galaxy already has Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt and Vin Diesel in the cast so Cooper’s presence would take at least the cast of the film to an Avengers style talent level. It’s yet to be known if Cooper will be part of the current shooting of the film or if he will be entirely added in during post production. All that is known is Cooper is onboard with Guardians of the Galaxy and the film just secured it’s biggest and most bankable star yet.
