SNL Prefers "Big Boy" Chris Pratt Over Guardians of the Galaxy in Hilarious New Song

The song had a hilarious nod to Marvel star Chris Pratt who famously got ripped when he joined the franchise for Guardians of the Galaxy back in 2014. In the music video, SZA is looking at Pratt as Star-Lord when she decides to replace it with an image of him as Andy Dwyer in Parks and Recreation, which is the role that helped him rise to fame.

Speaking with recently, Palmer said she's ready to play the beloved character.

"That's confidential, sugar. No, I'm kidding. I don't know," the Nope star said at the time. "I just know that the fans, the way that the fans have me booked, honey, online, I got to do a gig every week. So if we're adding Marvel to it, hey, let's do it. I'm ready for Rogue."

Will Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Be Chris Pratt's Final MCU Film?


As for Pratt, the actor will soon be seen playing Star-Lord again in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Director James Gunn previously confirmed that Vol. 3 will be the last movie to feature the original Guardians crew, and he's also hinted that there will be some major deaths in the upcoming movie. Many fans have guessed that Rocket will be the one to meet his end, but there's currently no official word on who isn't making it out of the movie alive.
