Behold the new ‘Indiana Jones’ Chris Pratt

Could it be? Chris Pratt, the goofy lovable dork we all know as Andy from “Parks and Recreation” and most recently, the majestic and famous Star Lord from “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the voice of Emmet in the new “Lego Movie” may be taking on another large role in “Indiana Jones.” The trailer for the new Jurassic Park movie also stars the adorable hunk in movie scheduled to open in theaters June 2015. SEE ALSO: Will Bill Murray jump on board the all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ flick? Pratt’s fame is likely due to the fact that “Parks and Recreation” has suddenly become the best show on television and “Guardians of the Galaxy” was an unmitigated success with the film netting an estimated $94 million at the US box office its opening weekend, making it the biggest August opening of all time and the third biggest opening of 2014. Not to mention the “Lego Movie” was yet another top grossing movie of the year so Pratt certainly didn’t have any trouble getting to the top of most casting lists. Director James Gunn took to Facebook earlier today to express: The Guardians are a group of oddballs, outcasts, and geeks. The movie is for anyone who ever felt cast aside, left out, or different. It’s for all of us who don’t belong. This movie belongs to you. And, today, I think we’re doing okay. Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones role has been up in the air for quite some time but until recently, Bradley Cooper was the talk of the town for that part. Now, Deadline is reporting that Disney may have moved on to his “Guardians of the Galaxy” co-star. Disney needed no more convincing that Pratt could handle this role but just to add to the long list of Pratt qualifications for this specific role, the nostalgia-heavy scenes in Guardians remind us of Ford back in his days as Jones. SEE ALSO: ‘Fantastic Four’ teaser trailer released Some ask if he is suitable for the role of Indiana Jones. While he may be a little too goofy for an archeology professor, his charisma and physical prowess certainly make up for it. Turns out Pratt has been cast as Jones for months now. So what will Pratt do now? His career skyrocketed within the blink of an eye and soon his most lovable role as Andy will come to an end as Parks and Recreation wrap up their memorable seven season run. Hopefully Pratt’s goofy comedy won’t end forever as well.The post Behold the new ‘Indiana Jones’… Chris Pratt appeared first on Voxxi.
