Hot off the promotional tour for his upcoming, sure-to-be blockbuster hit, Jurassic World, Chris Pratt has been attracting headlines left and right. It seems like nothing new ever since the star’s stellar performance as Peter Quill in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but for those of us who are Parks and Recreation fans as well, we know how deserving of attention the goofball actor really is. His time on the NBC hit series as the lovable Andy Dwyer surely set him up for his grander roles in the cinematic universe, and it seems like the bigger roles just keep on lining up.
Pratt, who is fairly active on social media saw an April Fool’s Reddit post from Dani_Californication which read, “Chris Pratt has just said to the mods: ‘If you get me to the top of /r/movies, I will do an AMA’! AbVotes to the left!” And sure enough, the post soared to the top. So, even though it was not Pratt who proclaimed this promise, he convinced his publicist to let him do it anyways, and damn are we glad she said yes. The AMA was a pile of gold, but here are a few extra hysterical highlights.
What Is His Favorite Movie And Why?
That is such a hard question. Probably something i saw as a kid simply for the sentimentality of it all. So Like Goonies or Bloodsport or something like that. Or maybe Rambo First Blood or the last Rambo where he outruns that dog, that shit was fucking crazy, or maybe City of God because that movie is awesome or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Across the Universe because I love the Beatles so much, or Country Strong, because just kidding, but that movie is actually really good but not my favorite of all time. Maybe the Neverending Story although I'm sure it doesn't hold up but I'll never know cause i'll never watch it again cause i hate when movies that i loved as a kid don't hold up for instance tango and cash just terrible.
I think my favorite line of this was, “...or Country Strong, because just kidding, but that movie is actually really good but not my favorite of all time.” But really what this response taught me is that basically Andy Dwyer and Chris Pratt are one in the same, because I can totally imagine Andy’s response being “Goonies or Bloodsport or something like that”.
What Would Andy/Johnny Karate/Burt Macklin Be Doing Now?
Here's something you might not have known about those characters. They smoked a lot of weed. they'd probably be doing that right now.
Well, there it is, the answer to the lingering question, why are these three versions of Chris Pratt always so happy? It does worry me that Burt Macklin is getting stoned on the job though, no wonder it took him so long to figure out who pied Jerry in the face. He must’ve too busy eating the evidence.
What Are His Similarities To Star-Lord?
Quill and I are basically the same person. We were born in the same year. We loved the same movies. The same music. If I were kidnapped at 10, taken to space and based my ideology on the pop culture of 1979-1989 I would be Peter Quill.
Not many people could pull off Pratt’s skilled dance numbers in the film too. That takes a certain level of musical adoration, especially while Peter Quill is singing into little lizard microphones.
Who Would Win In A Fight: Chris Pratt or Nick Offerman?
Trick question. We would never fight. Unless it was us against anybody else in which case we would win.
Of course they would never fight, what a silly question. But, what a perfect answer. Now all I want is to see Nick Offerman and Chris Pratt fight side-by-side in some sort of superhero movie, and take over the world. I would happily serve them in world domination. <
What Does He Think Of Nick Offerman?
Nick is a best selling author. He is a very rare breed. He is the epitome of integrity. He's wildly intelligent. He shakes your hand, looks you in the eye and remembers your name. He is thoughtful and kind and absolutely devoted to his craft, his wife and his friends. He takes magnificent craps and sends them to me sometimes. And I like that very much. It's almost like he's from another time, a better time, when people were more real. Although they didn't have texts back then so I guess it's a wash with the crap pics.
To further prove Pratt’s everlasting love for Nick Offerman (as any Parks and Rec fan would agree upon), he basically gave the perfect book sleeve summary of the comedian/actor. Makes me happy to know the two are so close that Offerman even sends Pratt his “magnificent craps”.
What Is His Favorite Sandwich and Fictional Character?
Great questions. Perfect sandwich? two slices of white bread, mustard, mayo and a platinum american express card. fictional characters from literature? Call or Gus from Lonesome Dove.
How many people are witty enough to respond to a mundane question which such a fantastic answer? Yes please, I’d like a platinum american express card on my sandwich. Also, can we please get a quality film adaptation of the classic western with Chris Pratt as one of the stars?
Would He Rather Fight: 1 Lil’ Sebastian-Sized Duck Or 100 Duck-Sized Lil’ Sebastians?
Most definitely 100 duck sized LIl' Sebastians. Because I could kill most of them easily, but the remainder I would capture and breed as glamour pets. We could make literally hundreds of dollars.
Why settle for one Lil’ Sebastian when you can have 100?! We all know Andy Dwyer (as well as the rest of Pawnee’s) love for the adorable mini-horse. Make Lil’ Sebastian smaller and multiply, and there’s even more love to roam around.
