Chris Pratt Shows Off Acting Skills Against His Bacon Sandwich Co-Star

Chris Pratt Shows Off Acting Skills Against His Bacon Sandwich Co-Star

Chris Pratt, the loveable idiot from Parks and Recreation, is slowly becoming America's Nice Guy.

He's incredibly humble, doesn't take himself too seriously and can act in both serious and funny films.

He's currently doing the promotional tour for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the sequel to the epic space battle Marvel superhero movie directed by James Gunn.

Appearing on BBC Radio 1, host Nick Grimshaw tested Chris's acting skills by asking him to perform with a bacon sandwich.

Pratt is told to pretend he is in space and has fallen in love with the pile of sandwiches before then acting as if the sandwich is dying.

Look he's not going to get an Academy Award nomination for the piece but it shows just how likeable the 37-year-old is.

It hasn't been all fun and radio games for the Minnesota-born actor. He dropped out of community college halfway through the first semester and ended up being homeless in Hawaii. He was sleeping in a van and earned enough for petrol and supplies by working as a discount ticket salesman and daytime stripper.

His acting career kicked off when he got a part in the short horror movie Cursed Part 3. That's when doors began opening for him - he was eventually cast in the hit TV show The O.C. and auditioned for Star Trek and Avatar.

But his breakout role came when he got the part of Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation, where he earned his adorable, funny reputation. That was boosted when he got his first starring role in The Lego Movie, arguably one of the funniest movies of all time.

As the comedy side of his acting career took off, Pratt showed off his other talents in films like Moneyball, Zero Dark Thirty and Jurassic World. The latter of those movies went on to gross more than $1.6 billion at the box office.

In 2015 he revealed on The Graham Norton Show that his wife Anna got him addicted to TOWIE and he ended up being able to do the Essex accent pretty bang on:

But it was late last year, playing Playground Insults with Jennifer Lawrence on BBC Radio 1, when he showed off how genuinely funny he can be:

The insults are by no means witty or intelligent, but the pair show why they are some of the most likeable and relatable people in Hollywood.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will open in cinemas next month which will continue the story of Peter Quill and his weird gang. The franchise will merge with another hugely popular Marvel series in Avengers: Infinity War, which is expected to be released next year.
