Gary:  Brian, I have to ask, because he is all over the place. Are you a Chris Pratt fan?

Brian:  I love Chris Pratt.

Gary:  Yeah?

Brian:  Yeah, he’s kind of goofy. He came out of nowhere. But after “Parks and Recreation,” I feel like I just can’t get enough of him. He’s so charming and still fun.

Gary:  Well now, after “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and now he’s going to be in “Jurassic World,” he’s kind of this suave, stud figure in media today. And everyone is saying, “Wow, this guy is amazing.”

Brian:  Yeah, and I’ve got to say that I really enjoy him as an action star, because he still brings a nice sense of humor to everything he does.

Gary:  I don’t think so, but do you think there’s too much hype around him?

Brian:  I think that we’ll probably see him in a bunch of stuff. And maybe the public will get slightly tired of him.

Gary:  Yeah, I could see that.

Brian:  But I hope not. They could just keep casting him in everything.

Gary:  Yeah, I’m happy watching him in films. I think he’s really easy to watch. It’s just like, hey, this guy is having fun. And yet, he does some serious stuff.

Brian:  I want to be him.

Gary:  You should go work out every day then.

Brian:  I should.

Gary:  Every day.

Brian:  I want to be a stud.

I strongly agree with above mentioned guys. This actor can be different, but after all I think there is too much hype around him. He is growing but not yet a big Hollywood star)

I can’t say whether I like Chris Pratt or not because I don’t know him and he also doesn’t know me. 


Anyhow, I agree with Ola33 and Lunnyman. This is a nice and interesting lesson which teaches us some useful vocabulary. Thanks, Ebaby, I love you so much!!!!
