Christopher Michael Pratt (born June 21, 1979) is an American actor. Pratt came to prominence with his television roles; he is best known for his role as Andy Dwyer in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation from 2009–2015, for which he received critical acclaim and was nominated for the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series in 2013. He also starred earlier in his career as Bright Abbott in The WB drama series Everwood.
His early film career began with supporting roles in such mainstream films as Wanted, Jennifer's Body, Moneyball, The Five-Year Engagement, Zero Dark Thirty, Delivery Man and Her.
Pratt achieved leading man status after starring in two commercially successful films in 2014: computer-animated adventure comedy The Lego Movie and Marvel Studios superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy (Portraying Star-Lord).
In 2015, he starred in Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, which is his most financially successful film to date, earning $1.6 billion at the box office. Later that year, Time named Pratt one of the 100 most influential people in the world on the annual Time 100 list.
Pratt continued his leading man status with The Magnificent Seven and Passengers. He reprised his role as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and will play the character again in Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel.
In 2007, on the set of Take Me Home Tonight, Pratt met actress Anna Faris, who played his love interest in the film. They were engaged in late 2008 and married in Bali on July 9, 2009. They live in Hollywood Hills, California. Their son, Jack, was born in August 2012.
