Chris Pratt And Melissa McCarthy Reveal Their First (And Worst) Head Shots.

United Press International is a leading provider of news, photos and information to millions of readers around the globe via and its licensing services.

In the clips (the full episode airs on BBC America on June 6), Pratt tells the story of moving to Hollywood and knowing that he needs photos, but not knowing any photographers and having no money to pay for the pictures anyway. With a history of reliable reporting dating back to 1907, today’s UPI is a credible source for the most important stories of the day, continually updated – a one-stop site for U.S. and world news, as well as entertainment, trends, science, health and stunning photography. Then he had a lucky chance encounter with a helpful stranger in a post office. “This guy was like, ‘you look familiar, have I shot you?’ and I was like ‘I’ve never been shot,’” said Pratt, who was then more than happy to take the stranger up on his offer of free photos.

While Pratt’s head shot is laugh inducing with his retro California Ken doll looks complete with what look like Sun-In highlights and a pukka shell necklace, McCarthy’s are hilariously horrifying. “I have no idea how you got those,” she said. “I literally thought I had the only two hard copies and when you sent them to me I thought, ‘dear god, they’re out there.’” McCarthy’s first-ever commercial agent recommended that the up-and-coming actress get so-called “character shots,” which are exactly what they sound like, photos of McCarthy in character. While she wasn’t keen on the idea, she dutifully trotted out “Carol,” one of the characters she had been developing with the sketch comedy troupe the Groundlings. “Carol” handed out cheese samples in a grocery store for a living—and looked like it. It’s up to , Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, and Irrfan Khan to once again make us believe in their dinosaur co-stars. With Jurassic World, Pratt seems poised to become an even bigger movie star with two major film franchises to headline… and possibly a third, if certain rumors out of Disney are true.

But seriously, you have to feel for a woman who is forced to sit through a slideshow of her most embarrassing photos ever in front of Jude Law and Chris Pratt. Although Pratt got his start in the little seen short film Cursed 3, his first big role was on “Everwood” as Bright Abbott, the onscreen brother of Amy Abbott (future “Revenge” star Emily VanCamp). Pratt portrayed an activist college student named Winchester “Che” Cook, and he appeared on a recurring basis throughout the season before being written out of the show. It wouldn’t have been very memorable, except for Barry’s affair with Wesley’s girlfriend, which eventually led to Wesley smashing Barry’s face with a keyboard.

Retroactively, it’s that time that Professor X knocked out Star-Lord, since both McAvoy and Pratt landed much bigger comic book characters a few years later. Pratt wasn’t even a series regular when “Parks and Recreation” began, but his character, Andy Dwyer, was a scene stealer and he was quickly promoted. As real life baseball player, Scott Hatteberg, Pratt was able to play a dramatic role that chronicled Scott’s struggle to stay in the game while learning a new playing position. Pratt had to drop thirty pounds to win his role in this film, and it wasn’t the last time that he’d have to physically transform himself to advance his career. 2012 was a very good year for Chris Pratt at the movies. In The Five-Year Engagement, Pratt got to bring some of his Andy Dwyer brand of zaniness to Alex, the best friend of the film’s male lead, Tom Solomon (Jason Segel).

And it was amusing to see Alex’s relationship with Alison Brie’s Suzie, especially since both Pratt and Brie had comedies on NBC’s Thursday night schedule. Director Colin Trevorrow and executive producer Steven Spielberg were already convinced that Pratt was the right choice to be the new main character of the Jurassic Park franchise. Pratt is already lined up for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in 2017, but first he’ll appear in the remake of The Magnificent Seven, which is currently filming.
