In a promo video for Marvel's newly released Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt gives us a MTV 'Cribs' style look inside the Milano - the spaceship owned by Pratt's GotG character Peter Quill aka Star-Lord. Included in the tour is the common area, Quill's bunk ("where the magic happens") and the ship's flight deck, all of which have some pretty impressive physical props.
And while Pratt unfortunately isn't shirtless during his video tour, it's still well worth a watch.

Chris Pratt's yearbook photos have been revealed by a Redditor and it should be no surprise that he was named Class Clown, or that he "would steal school assemblies with his surprisingly good moonwalk."
Above, his senior year photo, and below, a shot of him pinning an opponent on an opposing wrestling team.
Meanwhile, for those of you whose Chris Pratt crush is chronic, Marvel has put out a new Guardians video which features the Star-Lord actor giving us a tour of the Milano.

The Marvel Universe movies could have not existed before Right Now. Yet, for all the technological advances and computer wizardry that have made The Avengers possible, the magic still comes from the humanity of the actors. No amount of technical prowess can make you care about Iron Man if a great actor hasn’t sold you on the bravado and change of heart of the man inside the suit. Captain America’s shield and super strength are great but his adventures don’t work if Chris Evans’s star turn isn’t so perfectly pitched to invoke fantasies of the nobility of a bygone American era. (Without the humanity it’s just Transformers and nobody wants that -Shut up. I’m in denial about those billions). With GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, Marvel Studios has gone Cosmic opening up a whole new movie wing for their ever-expanding universe. As they leave Earth behind, have they found a way to retain the humanity?
Yes and no. But not in the way you might expect.
It helps of course, on a superficial level that the movie begins on Earth and shamelessly pushes collective 80s nostalgia buttons by making Peter Quill our hero, relentlessly nostalgic about that era. We first meet him as a little boy in 1988 and his most cherished possession twenty some years later when the movie takes place isn’t any of his impressive weapons or starship but a walkman with a cassette tape called “Awesome Mix Tape Volume 1”. It also helps that Peter Quill is played by endearingly simple Andy from “Parks and Recreation” a.k.a. Chris Pratt.
