Chris Pratt was tapped by the National Association of Theatre Owners as the recipient of the 2014 Breakthrough Performer of the Year Award which he accepted during a gala awards ceremony concluding this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Pratt earned the award for his upcoming starring role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but he’s also been keeping busy with The LEGO Movie (voicing the film’s unlikely hero, Emmet) and on the critically acclaimed TV series Parks and Recreation. Plus, he was recently cast in the reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World.
 
Before taking the stage to accept his award at Caesars Palace in Vegas, Chris Pratt talked about all the projects he’s working on. Pratt discussed taking on the lead role in the big-budget Marvel movie, preparing for the role of Star-Lord, the story, and how the film differs from other Marvel projects. And although he couldn’t say much about Jurassic World, he did talk about it as well as how excited he is to go back to work on Parks and Recreation and how much he loves his co-stars.

The Plot of Guardians of the Galaxy:


From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
