Chris Pratt has confirmed what we all kinda, sorta already knew—the guy is set to star in the latest installment of the wildly popular Jurassic Park film franchise, Jurassic World.
After months of rumors that the Parks and Recreation actor was slated to play the movie's male lead, the 34-year-old himself shared the good news while promoting his next flick, The Lego Movie, at Legoland in Carlsbad,Calif., on Sunday, Jan. 26.
"For me, Jurassic Park was really kind of my Star Wars," Pratt told QMI Agency (via Peace River Record Gazette). "I lined up at the theater to see it, I saw it opening night, I saw every sequel. I've seen it a whole bunch of times...for me that was my big movie, I think I was 13 or 14 when it came out."
