In our third episode we talk about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. Devon and I went to the theater and both liked it-it was fun! In this episode we talk about superhero movies, Marvel characters like Ego, and so forth. Here’s more info about Ego:
“Ego’s official first appearance came in 1966, in Thor #132, “Where Gods May Fear to Tread!”. In this issue, Thor made a deal with a race known as the Rigellians who were threatening Earth. If he could save the Rigellians’ home planet from being devoured by Ego, they would leave Earth alone. Unsurprisingly, Thor managed to win the battle, convincing Ego to remain in the Black Galaxy and saving both Earth and Rigel from destruction. Ego has something of a history with the Hulk, thanks to an appearance on the animated series Hulk and the Agents of SMASH.”
Here are some fun facts you probably don’t know about Chris Pratt:
Growing up, Pratt wrestled and even finished fifth in a state wrestling tournament in high school.
Before he got into acting, Pratt was waiting tables at a Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant in Maui, Hawaii.
His first substantial role was on the WB show “Everwood,” which aired for 4 seasons.
Perhaps best known for his role as Andy in “Parks and Recreation,” Pratt was only cast as a guest star in Season 1 with the intention his character would be temporary. Needless to say, his character was a hit, and Pratt was soon written into the show as a regular.
As for his personal life, Pratt is married to actress Anna Faris. The two actors welcomed a son in August 2012
