Chris Pratt shares photo from his homeless days in Hawaii

Before Chris Pratt was Andy on Parks and Recreation, before he was Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, before he was braiding interns’ hair in on-camera interviews, Chris Pratt was homeless — but living in a pretty cool van.

Here's Chris Pratt rapping Eminem's part of 'Forgot About Dre'

Chris-Prat.jpg

If Guardians of the Galaxy’s big climax ended with a rap battle for the fate of the universe, the galaxy would probably be in good hands as long as Chris Pratt was on the mic.

Stopping by DJ Whoo Kid’s The Whoolywood Shuffle, the actor proved his cred by flawlessly spitting Eminem’s verse from ‘Forgot About Dre’ off Dr. Dre’s The Chronic 2001. After thoroughly impressing DJ Whoo Kid with his delivery, Pratt pulls a classic rap-game follow-up by dissing Orlando Bloom on air. Since dropping bars and starting beefs are time-honored hip-hop traditions, Pratt’s off to a pretty promising start if he ever wants to moonlight as an MC. READ FULL STORY

Chris Pratt predicted 'Jurassic World' role, sort of

PARKS-REC-PRATT.jpg

Is Chris Pratt psychic?

News that the Guardians of the Galaxy star will have a leading role in Jurassic World only recently broke, but a behind-the-scenes video from Parks & Recreation season 2 shows Pratt “texting” Steven Spielberg about a role in a Jurassic Park sequel.

“I’ll have to get back to you later about Jurassic Park 4,” the actor reads aloud as he replies to a message from “Spielberg.”

Why all the “quotes”? Because this video was filmed in 2010, according to Morning After, which was quite some time before Pratt started to prove himself as an action hero, and years before the dino-casting announcement. READ FULL STORY

About that time Chris Pratt flashed Amy Poehler

Long before he was a Guardian of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt got in trouble with NBC for showing his coworkers his penis.

Pratt explained the incident on Wednesday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers: During the second season of Parks and Recreation, there’s a scene where Pratt’s Andy Dwyer shows up at then-girlfriend Anne Perkins’ home naked. Only Anne doesn’t open the door—Leslie Knope does.

As in most scenes with pixelated nudity, Pratt was actually wearing nude-colored briefs while shooting the scene. Then he decided to ditch them. You know, for art.

This week's cover: Chris Pratt goes from zero to hero in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

A lot of people think EW writers spend their days boozing it up with stars. In the case of this week’s cover profile of actor Chris Pratt, that’s 100 percent accurate. The Parks and Recreation star already has one box office hit under his belt this year thanks to The LEGO Movie, and he might well have another when the latest Marvel spectacular, Guardians of the Galaxy, arrives in theaters Aug. 1. On a break from shooting next summer’s dinosaur fourquel Jurassic World, Pratt hoisted some beers with EW’s Clark Collis in New Orleans while recounting his unlikely career trajectory.

Chris Pratt is an ace French braider, does not know how to spell 'braid' -- PHOTO

Eh, you win some, you lose some.

The following photo pictures actress Anna Faris — or at least, the back of Anna Faris’ head — sporting a flawless, Elsa-esque French braid. And according to the caption — written by none other than Parks and Rec star Chris Pratt, also known as Faris’ husband — the complicated hairdo was his own handiwork. Which is maybe slightly less impressive than Pratt plaiting his own hair, but still plenty impressive all the same.

Not quite as impressive: The (clearly joking) hashtags that follow Pratt’s brag about his “glorious french braid.” A sampler: “#ManBraid #RealMenBraid #isItBrade? #SpellingQuestion.” Followed, naturally, by these: “#WhyIsItFrench??? #ICallItAFreedomBraid #GoUsa.”

And suddenly, we begin to understand why Andy Dwyer is the way he is. READ FULL STORY

Watch 22 glorious minutes of 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 bloopers -- VIDEO

A Parks and Rec gag reel that’s as long as an actual episode of Parks and Rec? That sounds like LIT-trally the greatest thing that has ever existed.

Warning: NSFW language ahead, along with many scenes of Chris Pratt giggling.

Fall TV Wish List: What we want from the new (and last?) season of 'Parks and Recreation'

Here at EW, Fall TV Wish List is a new weekly series in which our TV critics Melissa Maerz and Jeff Jensen weigh in on what they hope the coming season will bring for some of their favorite shows. Today: NBC’s Parks and Recreation, which premieres its sixth season on Sept. 26.

WHERE WE LEFT OFF
Ace “detective” work by Bert Macklin revealed that manly-man master woodsman Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) and his mustache (as himself) had conceived a child with his single mom girlfriend Diane (Lucy Lawless). After refusing to sell Rent-A-Swag to a mystery buyer (Diddy?!), Tom (Aziz Ansari) learned that said mystery buyer was opening a rival shop across the street. April (Aubrey Plaza) was accepted to Veterinary School; wither the impact on her marriage to Andy (Chris Pratt)? And after a seemingly successful rookie year as a crusading councilwoman, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) was sandbagged during Founders’ Week by a flotilla of Knope haters who announced they were launching a recall campaign. At least she has local porn star Brandi Maxxx in her corner. That’s gotta be worth something, right?

Chris Pratt gets cut for 'Guardians of the Galaxy' -- PHOTO

Chris Pratt knows it’s “kinda douchey” to post a shirtless pic on Instagram, but we’ll forgive him. The Parks and Recreation star’s brother convinced him to show off his new physique for Marvel’s big-screen Guardians of the Galaxy in which Pratt will play leading man Star Lord, the half-human half-alien leader of a bio-engineered team of space-traveling heroes. We’re guessing this took Henry Cavill hours in the gym, but Pratt credits “Six months no beer.” READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Rec' cast plays 'Hollywood Squares' -- VIDEO

I never thought of Nick Offerman as the game-show host type. (Rob Lowe, on the other hand…)

Yet it’s the mock-serious Offerman, in full Ron Swanson mode, channeling Hollywood Squares greats Peter Marshall and Tom Bergeron by hosting a version of the game for GQ‘s Men of the Year issue. Instead of keeping to the traditional format and asking true/false or multiple choice questions, Offerman challenged his cast with straight-foward pop-culture trivia.

Watch the video below to hear Aziz Ansari’s synopsis of 50 Shades of Grey and Chris Pratt’s lyrics to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” My only complaint is that the video is a minute too short. READ FULL STORY
