10 Reasons You Should Be Elated 2014 Is The Year Of Chris Pratt

By 02.21.14

Chris Pratt is having one hell of a year, and his biggest achievement hasn’t come out yet. He’s the star of the year’s highest grossing movie (The Lego Movie), has a steady day job on NBC’s much-adored Parks and Recreation, and Guardians of the Galaxy is going to make approximately $27 trillion. Plus, Pratt had a small role in Spike Jonze’s Her, one of the nine films nominated for Best Picture.

And we couldn’t be happier. Pratt passes every metric of a “cool” celebrity: he seems like someone you’d want to get a beer with, he’s able to transition between cult comedies and blockbusters, has an awesome wife, uses the word “dude,” etc. It’s the year of Chris Pratt — that’s positively awesome sauce.

2. Because he’s been on TV since 2002, and deserves some movie love.

6. Movie producers should REALLY love him: a movie he’s appeared in has been nominated for Best Picture three years in a row (Moneyball to Zero Dark Thirty to Her).

7. He’s got a good “big break” story: he worked as a waiter at a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. in Hawaii when he met Rae Dawn Chong, who cast him in the movie she was working on.
