Chris Pratt is among the biggest stars in Hollywood. He’s in the news now because people in New York City aren’t too familiar with him. (Imagine being so famous that it’s news when people don’t know you.) Last spring Pratt was in the news because before he was one of Hollywood’s biggest stars he was simply among Hollywood’s biggest actors — reportedly tipping the scales at 300 pounds when he starred on Parks and Recreation — before transforming into a svelte Marvel superhero. (And then moving on to battle dinosaurs in Jurassic Park.)
But even if random people in Manhattan don’t recognize Pratt, he’s still at the top of the list for some very popular fictional characters. Namely Sheldon of The Big Bang Theory, who’s been looking for a new roommate and considers Pratt a top choice. But Sheldon doesn’t get from Pratt what he was expecting. Or as Sheldon (Jim Parsons) succinctly puts it: “that Hollywood phony Chris Pratt never tweeted me back.” Busy with dinosaurs, Sheldon, might be Pratt’s reply. A reply Sheldon would appreciate, most likely.
