Christopher Michael "Chris" Pratt (born June 21, 1979) is an American actor, best known for his roles as Harold Brighton "Bright" Abbott in the television series Everwood, the recurring character Winchester "Ché" Cook in season 4 of The OC, Andy Dwyer in the television series Parks and Recreation, baseball player Scott Hatteberg in the film Moneyball, and Justin in the film Zero Dark Thirty.
Personal life 
Pratt was born in Virginia, Minnesota, and raised in Lake Stevens, Washington. Pratt married actress Anna Faris on July 9, 2009 in Bali. On August 25, 2012, Pratt and Faris welcomed a son, Jack.
Pratt was waiting tables at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company restaurant in Maui, Hawaii, when he was discovered by actor-director Rae Dawn Chong; she cast him in the horror film Cursed Part 3. Pratt's first regular television role was on the series Everwood, where he co-starred as Harold Brighton "Bright" Abbott. After Everwood's cancellation, Pratt joined the cast of The O.C. for its fourth season, playing Ché, an activist. He also had an appearance in the action film Wanted, as James McAvoy's character's best friend.
Pratt portrays the dimwitted Andy Dwyer in NBC's Parks & Recreation. The character Andy Dwyer is currently married to the character April Ludgate, performed by Aubrey Plaza. Andy is an aspiring musician and the lead-singer of the band Mouse Rat. He worked during the day as a shoe-shiner in City Hall, and was then hired to be Assistant Parks Director Leslie Knope's assistant. He also has an imaginary alter ego he calls "Bert Macklin," who is employed by the FBI and the Secret Service. However, "Bert Macklin" was later killed by drinking too much "Snake Juice" during the hunt for "Janet Snakehole," and was replaced by his brother, "Kip Hackman."
Pratt portrayed Scott Hatteberg in the movie Moneyball, which also starred Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Prior to the release of Moneyball, Pratt was known for his somewhat "typecast" acting roles, typically portraying youthful and somewhat immature characters, the most notable being Andy Dwyer of NBC's Parks & Rec. In Moneyball, Pratt had the opportunity to play a father as well as a dejected baseball player who once feared his career was over, who had the difficult task of learning an entirely new defensive position. Pratt lost 30 pounds for the role.
