The 34-year-old, who is married to actress Anna Faris, and stars in NBC hit comedy Parks & Recreation, has been hitting the gym in order to prepare for movie roles, posting a topless selfie last July. "For me, Jurassic Park was really kind of my Star Wars," Pratt said. "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", he said to QMI. "It's a big deal for me to be any part of that, let alone this part I'm going to be playing. I'm thrilled about it. Everybody around the world knows that franchise. "When you say Jurassic Park, no-one is like, 'What's Jurassic Park?' More people know Jurassic Park than just about anything. I'm thrilled." The movie will be set 22 years after the original film, which was released in 1993 and grossed $900 million, going on to become one of the highest-grossing films ever made. Jurassic World will be released in June 2015. > Check out Chris Pratt looking hench in the 'Guardians of the Galaxy trailer'
