Chris Pratt predicted 'Jurassic World' role, sort of

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

'Parks and Rec' celebrates 100 episodes with hilarious look back -- VIDEO

The wait is finally over.

Parks and Rec returns this week with its 100th episode. In celebration, the show has released a 20-minute (!) look back, featuring interviews with the entire cast reminiscing about their favorite lines, moments, and episodes.

Things we learned: Amy Poehler’s favorite scene is when the whole gang falls on the ice in “Comeback Kid,” Nick Offerman has a particular fondness for his first scene with real-life wife Megan Mullally, the cameraman hates Jerry just as much as all the Parks employees, and Aubrey Plaza is even more like April than we thought.

Treat yo’ self and watch the whole thing — including an intro song and dance by Perd Hapley — below: READ FULL STORY

Ben’s not really the Vegas type, so there weren’t any Hangover-esque shenanigans; instead, the boys stayed in for a night of beer and board games (Settlers of Catan, to be precise). At least, that’s how the night started out. Tom insisted they up the ante with a few drinks at Essence — Things Magazine‘s “Next Big Thing” — where they each revealed that none of them had experienced a real bachelor party. Here’s why:

'Parks and Rec': 8 great Ron Swanson-isms from 'Ron & Diane'

Last night’s episode of Parks & Recreation took us deeper into Chris’ ongoing psychological collapse and introduced us to Gayle Gergich (Christie Brinkley), Jerry’s incomprehensibly beautiful but slightly robotic wife. It also brought back Tammy II, Ron’s deranged, nymphomaniac ex-wife (or “sex-wife,” as she calls it) and pitted her against Leslie in what is probably the greatest dumpster fight ever depicted on screen.

But the heart of the episode took place at the Indiana Fine Woodworking Association Woodworking Awards, a surly event that Ron referred to as “heaven.” Given that he was surrounded not only by hand-made wood crafts but also by three of the most important women in his life — Leslie, Tammy, and new flame Diane — Ron had ample opportunity to dish out his singular wisdom. So grab your belt sanders and strap on your safety goggles folks, because it’s time for the eight best Ron Swanson-isms from “Ron & Diane.”
