Like many women of the 20-something age group, I first saw Chris Pratt as a completely cliché, granola-munching hippie on The O.C.
The more he traipsed around in plaid talking to Summer (Rachel Bilson) about spirit animals the more I disliked him as an actor and person. Only a minor change of heart occurred when I heard he was dating Anna Faris, because I figured she wouldn’t get with a humorless square.
THEN I finally suckered myself into watching Parks and Recreation after resisting for at least two years because I hate the talk-to the-camera format of The Office…
Starting to like this guy (Accidentally saw him in his underwear/Andy and April forever).
Great news for Pratt and his wallet – he’s just been cast as half-human Peter Quill, known by the superhero title “Star-Lord,” in Guardians of the Galaxy (unofficially advertised as the next Avengers).
Guardians is due August 1, 2014 and filming reportedly begins this summer in London.
