If you're a fan of NBC's Parks and Recreation, chances are you loved last night's hilarious and touching series finale that sent Leslie Knope and her ragtag band of Pawnee workers off into the sunset. But, even if you've never watched an episode of Parks and Rec in your life, here's something from the finale that still might interest you: a surprise Marvel easter egg.
If you’re still feeling emotional about last night’s series finale of Parks and Recreation, this might not make you feel better, but it will certainly make you feel more! On last night’s Late Night With Seth Meyers, the entire cast of the series joined host Seth Meyers to talk about their show (and saying goodbye to it, sniff sniff). From Amy Poehler to Chris Pratt, Adam Scott to Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari to Retta, everyone was here to celebrate the show. And you know who else was there in spirit? Li’l Sebastian. More tears, it’s okay, let it out.
Rumors have been circulating for a while that Disney wants Chris Pratt to star in a reboot of Indiana Jones. Then there was the report from late last week: Steven Spielberg is interested in returning to the franchise to direct Pratt in the reboot — well, you know, as long as there’s a good script. Last time Pratt was asked about the rumors, he didn’t have much to say, but on the red carpet at last night’s Oscars he was a bit more talkative about the possibility of starring in the franchise.
Not long ago, it was reported that Disney was eyeing Chris Pratt to headline an Indiana Jones reboot, and while that was certainly some exciting news (even if Pratt is a fairly predictable choice), there wasn’t really much else to it. Now comes word that original Indy director Steven Spielberg is interested in directing the reboot with Pratt attached — seems like we aren’t the only fans of Pratt.
It’s not often that parody trailers are that great, but this one for Jurassic World is exceptional — mostly because it’s completely bizarre and totally nuts. Ever wondered what a dinosaur would look like with Jeff Goldblum’s head? Did you think Chris Pratt on a motorcycle flanked by trained raptors wasn’t wild enough? This parody trailer definitely upgrades Jurassic World with some pretty awesome embellishments and edits.
In the Jurassic World trailer, careful editing ensured that we only catch tiny glimpses of the Indominus Rex, the genetically modified dinosaur cooked up by scientists to increase attendance to their theme park. But if you were expecting our first really good look at this guy to come from another trailer, you were wrong. This is the year 2015. These kinds of things get revealed in toy form these days.
If there's one thing that no one talks about enough, it's that Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are not only married, but that the very funny duo actually have a pint-sized baby boy together. How funny is that kid going to be? Despite baby boy Pratt's charmed life, he's already had to endure the indignity of one thing: air travel. More specifically: international air travel with an apparently irritable Mickey Rourke.
Marvel stars Chris Pratt and Chris Evans—Seahawks and Patriots fans, respectively—made a bet on Twitter on which of their teams would win the Super Bowl. At stake? The loser would have to visit a local charity dressed as their superhero. The Patriots beat the Seahawks in dramatic fashion, so Pratt, in full Star-Lord costume, lived up to his end of the bargain and visited Christopher's Haven, a home for kids and their families battling cancer in Boston.
It's okay if all you really want out of life is for Chris "Star-Lord" Pratt and Chris "Captain America" Evans to be best pals. We want that, too. You know who else wants that? Jimmy Fallon. And the Super Bowl. And everyone else in the entire world.
If there’s one thing I like, it’s big, bold, over-the-top action films. And if there’s two things I like, it’s a big, bold over-the-top action film starring a really charismatic and self-deprecating hero. So, basically, this is the best day ever. Because, per Variety, Chad Stahelski and David Leitch—the directors of the big, bold, over-the-top 2014 action film ‘John Wick’—are in “early talks” with Universal Pictures to make ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ with Chris Pratt—a really charismatic and self-deprecating hero.
