Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the voice of Rocket Raccoon: This guy.
|Those dreamy blue Racoon Eyes!|
Following up on the news that Vin Diesel would likely be playing Groot, we're pretty sure Marvel decided to save all of its star power casting bucks on this one for the voice booth. I love Cooper - he was fantastic in Silver Linings Playbook, and even ok in a terrible movie like Limitless, so I'm sure he'll do a fantastic job with Rocket. But it IS weird to see such a big actor making their Marvel debut as a voice.
Then again, Paul Bettany's been playing Iron Man's AI for four movies, so I guess it could all make sense. What do you all think?
