Chris Pratt shows Conan O'Brien how ripped he got for Zero Dark Thirty
Add Chris Pratt to the list of actors who have lost/gained a huge amount of weight for a movie role. Pratt, best known as the goofy Andy on PARKS AND RECREATION, has a key role in Kathryn Bigelow's ZERO DARK THIRTY. So, the normally average body typed Pratt had to bulk up for the part of a Navy SEAL. The results were shared with Conan O'Brien on his talk show.
Pratt, to put it bluntly, got f*cking ripped for the role. The iPhone photo he shared was emasculating for the best of us but surely a treat for his wife, actress Anna Faris. Pratt went on to gain 60 pounds to pay a schlubby lawyer for another movie (I assume it would be the Vince Vaughn movie THE DELIVERY MAN which is his only live action movie in production right now).
You have got to give it to Pratt as he certainly went all out for the job. The guy is a good actor in comedy and was good in MONEYBALL, but a true dramatic performance will remain to be seen. In the brief scene he shared with Conan from ZERO DARK THIRTY he looks like is will be fine, but we will have to wait until the movie is released to know for sure.
ZERO DARK THIRTY hits theaters in limited release on December 21st and everywhere on January 11th, 2013.
