Parks and Rec and Zero Dark Thirty star Chris Pratt made his Jay Leno Debut last night (known in the industry as a "JLD"), and he proceeded to thoroughly gross out Leno's audience by telling a story about once eating a possum his friend killed. The best part is that Matt Damon, the other guest, is just watching quietly.
Hit the jump for the second part of Pratt's interview, in which he discusses filming Zero Dark Thirty in Jordan and meeting Navy SEALs to research his part:
As if Harris Wittels wasn’t already putting all other 20somethings to shame with his busy career as a standup, sitcom writer (splitting his time between Parks and Rec and Eastbound and Down currently), musician, and podcast personality, he can now add “author” to his overflowing resume. His new book, Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty, hits the shelves today. It’s based on his wildly-popular Twitter feed @humblebrag, where he’s been retweeting people’s falsely-modest Twitter boasts to much acclaim. Wittels wrote and starred in this new Funny or Die trailer for the Humblebrag book, and the trailer’s a little bit of a humblebrag itself as it shows him [...]
Remember when Will Arnett played the MRI giver dude on Parks & Recreation and you thought, "He and Andy should totally voice characters in a Lego movie together?" No? Just me? Well, it's happening! Chris Pratt is set to voice the lead, Dan Lego (ok, that probably won't be the characters name), in Lego: The Piece of Resistance. (Whoever thought of that name should be promoted to Head of Movies.) Arnett will provide the voice to Lego Batman, which is a real part in this movie and the part he was born to play. This ridiculous half live-action and half Lego-based animated film will be released on February [...]
Parks & Rec's Nick Offerman and Chris Pratt have written a guide to surviving the 2012 Mayan apocalypse, and it's full of whiskey and bears and woodworking. In other words, it's exactly like Nick Offerman's regular life.
3. Assemble a posse of hooligan underlings, choosing a mix of muscular physiques and corpulent ones. Harvest fat from the chubbies and cook the muscular folks in it. When the fatties run out of cellulite to harvest, they are now prime, lean cooking specimens. Obviously you'll need to be fattening up new "team members" as you go, perpetuating the savory cycle.
Obedient, chubby team members? Finally Jerry will be useful for [...]
People has bestowed upon the male cast members of Parks & Recreation the most noble honor out there: Sexiest Man Alive. Treat yo'self to watching Aziz Ansari talk about his hair ("Take the softest thing you've ever felt in your life. Multiply that by a million. You're not even close to how soft it is.") or Nick Offerman's discussion of his perfect date (it involves capturing and slaying an animal in the forest). Adam Scott and Chris Pratt are in the mix too, which begs the obvious question, what about Jerry?
