Fans of “Parks and Recreation” received a jolt of excitement a few weeks back when stars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman (who’ll be reuniting this summer for NBC’s craft-based reality competition “Making It”) appeared together on TV and declared they’d happily return to Pawnee, Indiana, for a revival of the beloved sitcom.
It looks like they’re not the only “Parks and Rec” cast members to feel that way, with Chris Pratt echoing their sentiments.
During a chat with E! News on the red carpet of the premiere of his latest film, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”, Pratt said he’d also be down for more “Parks and Rec”.
“As long as I’m in town, yeah, I’ll do it,” he said. “It films, like 10 minutes from my house so that would be dope. I miss Andy too. I would love it. I know I would do it.”
So what does Pratt think Andy Dwyer would be doing all these years after the series’ 2015 finale? “I think [Andy] becomes a weatherman,” he explained. “He would be a good weatherman. He would have no idea what he’s even saying.”
During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in May, Poehler spoke on behalf of the entire cast to declare they’d all participate in a reboot.
“I’ll speak for everybody and say we would all do it. We would all do it someday,” she said, with Offerman saying there would be one condition in order to reunite the cast: “We said that if Beyonce will play mayor, we’ll bring the show back,” he joked, clarifying: “This is Beyonce Knowles, the singer.”
