Bradley Cooper is apparently in talks to voice the role of Rocket Raccoon in Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Marvel have offered the role of the superhero rodent in the comic book movie to the Silver Linings Playbook star, sources have told the Latino Review blog.

Director James Gunn told Hey You Guys recently: "Here's the thing: there are a lot of people who have a lot of ideas of who is right for Rocket Raccoon. Rocket Raccoon has been slightly different over the years, in the comic books, and within my scripts he is a very, very specific guy, and I think people are going to have to wait for a few weeks before they see.

"We'll get our dream guy, because a lot of people want to do it, so we'll get the person who's perfect for the role."

Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler were previously rumoured to be in talks for one of the voice roles in the movie.

Vin Diesel is thought be voicing alien Groot, a giant living tree, after he revealed he had been cast in a Marvel project and posted a picture of Groot on his Facebook page.

Guardians Of The Galaxy already has an all-star cast, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Benicio del Toro and Glenn Close.

The film is expected to be released in August 2014.

You're highly sentimental. Listening to your favourite music from childhood or flipping through old books may cause laughter to erupt or tears to flow. Don't be ashamed to show your soft side. Although you're extremely headstrong and determined, you also have a heart of gold. Many people don't know this about you, because they're too intimidated to make friends. Fortunately, you have a group of loved ones who know the real you. Arrange to meet with your favourite people for a festive dinner.More
