Actor Chris Pratt essentially went from a big-screen nobody to a multi-billion dollar box-office star in just a few years.
His skyrocketed journey to Hollywood stardom in the global box-office was primarily thanks to the massive success of three blockbuster movies - The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World.

Outside of reprising his leading roles in follow-up sequels, Chris Pratt is also starting to fill up his acting schedule with other roles in highly-anticipated films featuring ensemble casts.
For example, Chris will star in the Antoine Fuqua-directed film, The Magnificent Seven, alongside Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, and Vincent D'Onofrio.
But anyway...........chris pratt so fine
