In 2015 he will star in the sci-fi thriller Jurassic World (2015) and begin filming on a western remake, The Magnificent Seven (2017), with Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke. Pratt dropped out of the local community college after one semester, and after working as a coupon salesman and a day time stripper, he ended up homeless in Maui, sleeping in a van and in a tent on the beach. Pratt mentioned to The Independent, “Its quite awesome place to be homeless.

We just drank and smoked weed and worked minimal hours, just enough to cover gas food and fishing supplies. Pratt recalled listening to the Dr. Album 2001 daily to the point where he knew “Every world to that album”. Years later he was able to perform Eminem’s vocals from the song “Forgot About Dre” extemporaneously throughout the interview.
