Parks and Recreation Fans, You Have to Hear Chris Pratt’s Terrific British Accent

Chris Pratt

Great comedic actor, big action star, and now the leading man in the film with the highest-grossing opening weekend of all-time; is there anything Chris Pratt can’t do? Apparently not, especially after this video in which the Jurassic World star (or as we know and love him here at TVOvermind, Parks and Rec‘s Andy Dweyer) does a British accent on The Graham Norton Show (to promote the film), and it’s actually pretty terrific. And we’re not the only ones who think so; Pratt also got the approval of Norton, Jude Law, and those in the audience.

However, the accent that Chris Pratt does isn’t a traditional, London accent, one that American actors attempt to recreate when the play English characters. Instead, he tries his best to capture an Essex accent, inspired by the cast of The Only Way Is Essex (called TOWIE in England), a series that Pratt refers to as England’s Jersey Shore and one that his wife, Mom‘s Anna Faris, apparently loved to watch when she visited him while he was filming Guardians of the Galaxy. Check out the video of it below; it’s really something you have to hear (and makes us wish that Burt Macklin had become British at one point during Parks and Rec).

As mentioned above, Chris Pratt’s newest movie, Jurassic World, was a box office phenom during its opening weekend, earning $208.8 million, beating the previous number one record held by Marvel’s The Avengers. What makes Jurassic World‘s record-breaking performance even better, though, is how many familiar TV faces starred in it. In addition to Pratt, who stayed on Parks and Recreation for all seven seasons before the show concluded this year, Jurassic World also featured Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order, Daredevil), Jake M. Johnson (New Girl), Judy Greer (Arrested Development, Archer), B.D. Wong (Law & Order: SVU), Nick Robinson (Melissa & Joey), and Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is the New Black)
