Chris Pratt is blowing up big-time in Hollywood these days. He’s part of a successful TV series (Parks and Recreation), has a starring role in a major Marvel movie (Guardians of the Galaxy), leads the LEGO pack in The LEGO Movie coming out this weekend, and is about to start shooting production with a starring role in Jurassic World, one of his all-time-favorite childhood franchises.
You can see in the video below how excited he is to be a part of this latest foray into the world of Jurassic Park. Pratt recently sat down with MTV News to talk about the movie.
What I liked about it is that it answers the question of, ‘Why would they do that?’
How do you suspend disbelief to be like, ‘Oh, yes! Let’s make this mistake again! We haven’t learned our lesson about dinosaurs. We should definitely live with them and see how that works out!
After three tries, they answer the question really well through the script. Colin did a great job of writing it and justifying it. Kind of, in his own way, having fun with that so that anybody who goes in with that question will be really amused the way I was.
Pratt went on to discuss his character, offering a comparison between him, Sam Neill‘s Dr. Alan Grant and Jeff Goldblum‘s Dr. Ian Malcolm.
He’s got a little of both [characters], he’s got a little bit of the Goldblum cynicism, but also the Sam Neill excitement at the wonder and the biology of it all.
Pratt is joined by Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson and Irrfan Khan. Colin Trevorrow will be directing the screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly.
Jurassic World will hit theater screens June 12th, 2015.
