He's a very real character...
Chris Pratt recently spoke with Access Hollywood about the just-wrapped Guardians of the Galaxy. Check out the highlights:
On Rocket Racoon: "You think it's a cartoon character, but it's not, it's a very real creature. [Rocket Raccoon has been] tortured his whole life and no one else likes him, so he's lonely and he's angry and it's like, [there are] all these elements [to the character]. You sort of forget about that, you wouldn't think about, [and] hopefully will come to life. I think it will and that's why they hired a really good actor to do the role."
On Bradley Cooper voicing the role: "I could not be more excited that Bradley Cooper is voicing Rocket Raccoon. It's a great character. It's probably the best character in the movie, just because it's not what you would expect."
The film also stars Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Djimon Honsou, Gregg Henry, Glenn Close and John C. Reilly and opens on August 1st, 2014.
