While we still wait to see who director James Gunn will cast as Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, the filmmaker welcomed an actual raccoon to the set earlier today. The director joked that this critter will serve as his new gaffer on the set, but perhaps he will actually serve as a casting assistant? What better way to choose Rocket Raccoon than with an actual raccoon, right? Probably not, but at any rate, take a look at the filmmaker's photo, along the tweet he sent out to his followers.
