If you enjoy movies and film of any kind, chances are you’ve heard of the adorably charming Chris Pratt.
He’s played Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
And Owen Grady in the recent Jurassic World movies.
But long before he was a bonafide movie star, Pratt was busy stealing our hearts on NBC’s Parks and Recreation.
He played the clueless yet lovable Andy Dwyer for the show’s seven-season run and introduced us to the hardest-working FBI agent to ever exist, Burt Macklin.
Like many of the show’s alums, Pratt has always spoken fondly of his time on Parks and has repeatedly said he would be down for any sort of reunion that would reunite him with his old co-stars.
“Oh, man, as long as I’m in town, yeah, I’ll do it. It films like 10 minutes from my house so that would be dope. I mean, you can’t film Parks and Rec without Andy. miss Andy too. I would love it. I know I would do it,” he recently told E! News while doing Fallen Kingdom press.
Of course, some of them already have a mini-reunion in the works as Amy Phoeler and Nick Offerman are teaming up for a new crafty design show called Making It.
It’s described as a “lighthearted competition celebrating the creativity in all of us and each week every show will revolve around a central theme that draws inspiration from hugely popular, nationwide trends in crafting and DIY the whole family can enjoy.”
Well, this past weekend Pratt had a serendipitous Parks and Rec moment while out in West Hollywood and shared it on Instagram.
He captioned the photo:
Saw this billboard on Sunset just now featuring my Parks Fam @amypoehlersmartgirls and @nickofferman Right as I snapped it R.E.M.’s “The One I Love” came on which is @mradamscott ’s favorite band. Awesome.
Adam Scott, who played Ben Wyatt on the show, also made his presence known as his favorite band R.E.M. started playing right as Pratt was snapping the photo.
Long story short, we need the Parks and Rec crew back together asap!
Making It premieres on July 31st on NBC.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
