Entertainment news keeps on rolling in today, and it looks like Parks and Recreation’s Chris Pratt, as in the actor behind Andy Dwyer, will be taking on the role of Star-Lord in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s… amazing. Like, there really aren’t words to describe how happy I am at this news. Not only does Pratt totally deserve the chance to portray a superhero like Star-Lord, but the man is by far my favorite actor on Parks and Recreation. Yes, the Internet loves Nick Offerman’s Ron Swanson — as do I — but Pratt’s take on Andy is both hilarious and heartfelt. To celebrate his casting, here’s a series of Andy Dwyer GIFs that are just fabulous.
Anyone that’s familiar with Tumblr knows that these kind of GIFs don’t exist in a vacuum. We’ve included the source for each wonderful slide so that they can be experienced in their full glory. You’re welcome, Internet. In case it wasn’t obvious, beyond here there be spoilers for Parks and Recreation.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
Yes, Star-Lord’s not likely to be a role heavy on the comedic side of things, but Pratt’s ability to be lovable regardless of the circumstances is what will really do well for him.
