GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY’s Chris Pratt on Entertainment Weekly cover, Plus Zoe Saldana Talks Gamora

You might have heard of this guy, Chris Pratt?  Well, he’s currently on the NBC TV comedy Parks and Recreation, and he’s going to be in the dinosaur movie, Jurassic World, but sooner than that behemoth of a movie is coming out, he’s going to appear as Peter “Star-Lord” Quill in Marvel’s small comic-based movie called Guardians of the Galaxy.  And he’s also on the cover of this coming week’s Entertainment Weekly.  And he has a raccoon on his back.  A raccoon.  On his back.  On the cover.  That’s awesome.

Anyway, here’s what he revealed in the article about how he got discovered, and how he got involved with this quirky space adventure movie:

The 35-year-old was discovered by Commando actress Rae Dawn Chong while working at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. in Hawaii. Since landing various TV gigs, he’s gained and lost a combined 300 pounds for his roles in Moneyball, Zero Dark Thirty, and The Five-Year Engagement. And he recounted his awkward meeting with Guardians director James Gunn about playing thief-turned-hero Peter Quill in the wild, space-set adventure whose other lead characters include a raccoon-like creature and a walking tree voiced, respectively, by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. “James said, ‘Do you have any questions?’” the actor explained. “I said, ‘Do I have any questions? Of course, I have questions! Marvel’s not going to let me read the script, I have no f—ing idea of what I’m doing, I don’t know this character, I don’t have any goddamn sides. Do I have any questions? How long do you have?’ And he was like, ‘That’s what Peter Quill would say.’
