Burt Macklin is Back! Chris Pratt Posts Parks and Recreation Throwback Selfie on Instagram

Macklin, you’ve done it again.

Former Parks and Recreation actor Chris Pratt posted the selfie to end all selfies Monday when he did his best Blue Steel while holding an FBI mug — a reference to his beloved character’s alter-ego. Pratt gave a nod to Andy Dwyer’s favorite play character Burt Macklin — an FBI agent that is always hunting for stolen jewels.

“Just gazin’ off in the distance sippin’ some coffee from my FREAKIN’ FBI MUG,” Pratt, 38, wrote while adding a #burtmacklin at the end.

The character made his first appearance alongside Aubrey Plaza‘s character’s alter-ego and quickly became a hit amongst fans, eventually turning into an often copied Halloween costume.


In a separate post, Pratt also took the chance to talk about his experience of meeting up with almost every actor from the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a Vanity Fair cover shoot. The Guardians of the Galaxy actor shared the cover he appears on and described what it was like to be in a room with so much star power.

“I had a pretty surreal photo shoot while filming #avengers#infinitywar. We took this photo,” Pratt said. “We also shot a “Marvel 10th Anniversary Class Photo” which included just about anyone that’s ever been in the 22 Marvel movies made in that time! That was really something. I kept looking around, flabbergasted. So many big stars. So many awesome actors. It was a real “pinch me,” moment.”

Pratt then went on a hilarious rant referencing Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, throwing him in a limbo where time doesn’t exist.

“I’m hoping he’ll contact me soon to let me out? I don’t know if he has Instagram. Someone tell him? I know  follows me. Can you tell him Tom?” Pratt joked. “Hope he didn’t forget about me. I love being in Marvel movies. I’d hate to miss the premiere of #infinitywar next summer.”
