Chris Pratt received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday – accompanied by his on and off screen families.
While this is not the kind of news Eclipse usually covers, this is a slightly unusual case – it’s not been that long since Pratt was the pudgy fifth/sixth lead on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Plus, Pratt’s new blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a mere two weeks away.
Now he’s a superstar of the big screen and, as Bashful Benjamin J. Grimm would put it, ‘The idol o’ millions.’ Also, Prat went old school for the event in a three-piece suit that practically screamed Old Hollywood.
