loving Guardians of the Galaxy!!!!!!

# 2

hahaha awesome he’s perfect for rocket raccoon

# 3

and looks like raccoon LOL

# 4

I don’t think I’ll be seeing this one because I’ve never been into comic books. He’s going to have to promote this with Zoe, which might be awkward, though.

# 5

Watch out Sooki, your man will be working with his ex Saldana again.

# 6

finally some positive news about Bradley!!

# 7

Very cool. The leaked trailer looked awesome.

# 8

I wonder if he will be spending time with his castmates prior to promotion. This will be interesting.

# 9

He does animated films for kids so his underage baby girlfriends can be able to watch.

This is odd casting since his voice is not that unusual like Darth Vader ‘s voice. This smells strange since I thought he wanted to be thought of as a very serious actor and leave the comedy behind for awhile. If his character falls flat with the audience, who will get the blame for it? I thought he would not want to work with his ex-Zoe Saldana because of the nasty public breakup. I think she had something to do with his casting for this movie. I hope they don’t use their relationship whether past or present to promote this movie. An audience can be very fickle and feel like they are being set-up. When you outright lie and deceive the public it can get very ugly fast. I really want him to do some serious acting to show off his thespian chops. I really loved him in Silver Linings.

I think he and Zoe are both pros so it won’t be a prob

Seriously, David Tennent would have been a much better choice to voice Rocket Raccoon. It will be interesting to see if Bradley promotes this film with the rest of the cast.

@juicy lucy: Wouldn’t he have to promote the movie with everyone else? It does seem like it would be awkward, but maybe not. By the time this movie comes out, they will have been broken up for almost 2 whole years. I saw a photo(I think it was on the Wikipedia page for the movie) of most of the cast at this year’s Comic-Con and Bradley was not there. But, I think he was in San Diego at the same time because I think that is the weekend he went to that Metallica concert with Suki. I’m guessing maybe he hadn’t been cast in the movie yet and that’s why he wasn’t with the cast at Comic-Con? I don’t know.

Grown ups can be professional about these things and work together. It’s only the immature or insecure people who would have difficulty coping with ex-couples working together again.

Awesome news! Can’t wait!

I don’t think it’s that big a deal.

Bradley will not work together with his former beard Zoe in it! he will only dub the movie, and actors dub movies alone in the studio, not with other actors.
@blunt talker: “I thought he would not want to work with his ex-Zoe Saldana because of the nasty public breakup. I think she had something to do with his casting for this movie.” – Zoe doesn’t have any power in the movie business to have something to do with Bradley being cast for this movie! he is an Oscar nominated actor, people want him in their movies, that’s all!
And I read that Bradley will have a small part in this movie, so I don’t believe that he will promote it with Zoe and pretend they are friends, like they did it to promote that bomb called The Words faking a relationship.

Name take over! The person using Chris above is not me.
She does have the same handwriting as someone in our previous threads. I am the Chris that has been with you for many stories.

Immy or Suki or Savannah-Call me what-Duuuh-Dan, Elisa, Daniela aka Vanenyc: Name take over is dumb.

@Chris #19 What is your problem?! Chris is a very common name why do you assume someone is trying to be you? You do not own the exclusive rights to that name and you’re not the boss of Just Jared comments. Calm down, relax. Try not to be so paranoid all the time.

NinaMilo:
What is your problem? You are back here with your bad apprentice attitude, you loser. Chris is a common name but he has the right to tell us it is a different Chris. You do not own the exclusive right to come back to these boards with your arrogance since everyone went to private boards. Calm down, relax or get lost.

Nina is Milo @ 09/01/2013 at 12:56 am

Daniela or @Dan defended @NinaMilo and @seg76. @Nina was always looking for @Dan. Is she them too? Hahaha?@Dan said they were hardworking women in the industry. Since he lied about everything, they must be fake too.
Paranoid @MiloNina: Go take care of your cats + computer.

What the heck?! I am not named nina and I don’t have any cats. There was only one Chris in this thread until the other one showed up claiming “name takeovers” . you are right he can say he is a different chris, but instead he attacked the first Chris saying “name takeover”. why does bradley have so many paranoid fans? I have posted on other bradley stories using this name, including this one. You all are nuts. Anyway if there is anyone sane here, I will say again that I am really looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy I am very happy Bradley joined the cast

If he is paranoid, he can leave this thread. He is not the first Chris. You really are nuts to support him. You all need to get a brain. Bradley has too many paranoid fans. I am happy Bradley joined the Galaxy cast! Can’t wait!

@Milo #23 is not me. Paranoid Bradley fans.

Milo 24 is a different milo. I am 16, 20, and 23. This place is nuts. I feel sorry for Bradley attracting all these crazy fans. Are all Jared posts like this?! I just wanted to talk about Bradley’s new movie, I had a sane conversation on here about his Lance Armstrong movie, without people bullying and pretending to be other people. Foolish of me to think it could happen again. People can have same first names without taking over identities.
