Below you can check out a video of Bradley Cooper being interviewed by MTV where Cooper compares Rocket Raccoon To Joe Pesci. Cooper also says Chris Pratt's Star-Lord is more the heart of the movie, comparing the character to both Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, as well as mentions that James Gunn told him Rocket was inspired by the Beatles tune "Rocky Raccoon" (listen to the song below as well).

"The Chris Pratt character, I think that is the heart of the movie," Cooper said. "It's like Han Solo and Luke combined."

"I mean Rocket is dynamic," Cooper added. "He's the sort of Joe Pesci in Goodfellas guy. You need Henry Hill." 

Previously, Bradley Cooper talked about the type of accent he would be using for Rocket Raccoon.
