Chris Pratt

  • Birth Name: Christopher Michael Pratt
  • Birth Place: Virginia, Minnesota, United States
  • Profession: Actor


With athletic good looks and an affable vibe, Pratt literally fell into acting when he happened to wait on actor-director Rae Dawn Chong in a Hawaii restaurant. Taken with Pratt, she cast him in her debut feature, Cursed 3, and although the comic horror film was barely seen, it launched his career. After a handful of small TV roles, the hunky blond landed on Everwood in 2002 as a jock with a pronounced sensitive side, and the actor stayed with the series until its demise in 2006. Off screen he dated his costar Emily VanCamp, who played his sister on the show, and later married fellow actor Anna Faris in 2009.
