Looking back on his work in shows like The O.C. and Everwood, it’s kind of great to realize that the goofy Chris Pratt would one day become a bona fide movie star. Indeed, not only did he land the lead role in a Marvel movie, but he was chosen to take charge of a new entry in the Jurassic Park franchise. Pratt-mania is at a fever pitch, and it’s impossible to resist the guy’s charms—especially if you were a fan of Parks and Recreation.
Universal Pictures has now released a few new behind-the-scenes featurettes from Jurassic World that give us a look at the atmosphere on set, and Pratt is just as funny and fun-loving as you’d imagine. Watching these videos, I’m convinced an entire short film could be created out of bloopers, outtakes, and Pratt just goofing around in between takes. I’m not sure whether Jurassic World will be good or not, but I’m quite certain Pratt’s magnetic presence will go a long way towards making the film at least slightly entertaining.
Check out the new featurettes below. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the film also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and Judy Greer. Jurassic World opens in 2D and 3D on June 12th.
