Chris Pratt, star of Guardians of the Galaxy and Parks and Recreation, has been chosen by members of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals as the 2015 Man of the Year. This year’s awards will be a Parks and Recreation lovefest as Pratt’s co-star in the half-hour comedy series, Amy Poehler, was already announced as the 2015 Woman of the Year.
“We vehemently deny that the members of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals are obsessed with Parks & Recreation,” said Jason Hellerstein ’15, President of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals. “There is absolutely no basis to the rumors of ritualistic weekly viewings of the show at the Hasty Pudding Clubhouse… Joking aside, Chris Pratt’s recent achievements as an actor are outstanding and we could not be more thrilled to host him and celebrate his talent as only the Pudding can.”
The annual awards honor “performers who have made lasting and impressive contributions to the world of entertainment.” Pratt will be joining a list of past honorees that includes James Franco, Neil Patrick Harris, Tom Cruise, and Clint Eastwood.
Pratt will be honored with the award and presented with his Pudding Pot on Friday, February 6th during a celebratory roast at Farkas Hall in Harvard Square.
Next up for Pratt is a starring role in Jurassic World. The fourth film of the Jurassic Park series will be heading to theaters on June 12, 2015.
