Chris Pratt Almost Turned Down “Guardians of the Galaxy

After seeing Guardians of the Galaxy, it feels wrong to think of any other actor in the lead role of Peter Quill, yet Chris Pratt revealed that he almost turned down the role that has made him one of the hottest actors of the year (and hopefully the decade because I’m officially in love with him, sorry boyfriend and Pratt’s wife Anna Farris.)

Pratt revealed in an interview with Esquire for their September issue that he almost backed out of the Marvel picture thanks to a bad experience with an audition for G.I. Joe role a few years ago. He said,

“When Guardians of the Galaxy was pitched to me, I said, ‘I don’t think so.’ I just didn’t picture myself getting the role,” Pratt says. “I didn’t want to go and embarrass myself like I did when I auditioned for G.I. Joe a couple of years previously. I went in there, and halfway through I saw the director’s eyes just glaze over. It made sense — I was a little heavy and out of shape. I was not gonna play someone from G.I. Joe. I did not look like a G.I. Joe action figure come to life.”

But as you know, Pratt got the role and did an intense physical regimen to get in shape for the film. (And looks damn fine in it.)

“I can do 40-inch box jumps now. Action-hero physical stuff,” he says. “Jumping that high feels really good. You see a giant hillside, and you think, I wanna get up that. You see a building, you think, I could climb that. When you get in shape, the world around you becomes things you wanna jump on and climb up.”

Pratt proved himself worthy as well. Guardians of the Galaxy as blown away audiences and the box office this year and as already been picked up for a sequel that will release in 2017. Pratt has signed on for a multi-year contract with Marvel as well which is only good news for me and fans everywhere.

Chris Pratt Teases Jurassic World Plot and Character Details

Plot details for Jurassic World are finally being slowly revealed. MTV News recently spoke with Chris Pratt who hinted at what fans can expect from the fourth installment of the franchise.

Pratt told MTV News exactly what drew him to the project and why he joined the cast.

“What I liked about it is that it answers the question of, ‘Why would they do that? How do you suspend disbelief to be like, ‘Oh, yes! Let’s make this mistake again! We haven’t learned our lesson about dinosaurs. We should definitely live with them and see how that works out!” After three tries, they answer the question really well through the script. Colin did a great job of writing it and justifying it. Kind of, in his own way, having fun with that so that anybody who goes in with that question will be really amused the way I was.”

Pratt also talked briefly about his character, comparing him to Sam Neill’s Dr. Alan Grant and Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcolm.

“He’s got a little of both [characters],” Pratt explains. “He’s got a little bit of the Goldblum cynicism, but also the Sam Neill excitement at the wonder and the biology of it all.”

Jurassic World will be released on June 12, 2015. The much-anticipated film is also set to star Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson and Irrfan Khan. It will be directed by Trevorrow from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley are producing.

Pratt is most known for his role on “Parks and Recreation,” but has two major film releases coming up in 2014. He stars in both The LEGO Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy (where he looks FIERCE.)

Steven Spielberg returns to produce the long-awaited next installment of his “Jurassic Park” series. Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a draft of the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley join the team as fellow producers.

Irrfan Khan is also being reported to up for a supporting role in the film.

Jurassic World will be shot in 3D and is scheduled for a June 12, 2015 release. No official plot for the film or production details have been released. However, it was confirmed by Trevorrow that the film will feature Isla Nublar, the island from the first film.
