Hasty Pudding winner Chris Pratt roasted at Harvard

February 7, 2015

CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (AP) — Chris Pratt was teased about his early acting roles while being roasted at Harvard University as he received the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award by America’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star was feted Friday night.

Zoe Rosenthal and Joshua Friedman, producers of Hasty Pudding’s production of “Oops! . Madrid It Again!,” joked that Pratt’s portrayal of a minor character on “The O.C.” played a major role in the TV show’s cancellation. They also bashed his role in the film “Deep In The Valley,” saying audiences asked for refunds after seeing it.

Pratt called his day in Cambridge “truly remarkable” and thanked the crowd.

He co-stars on NBC’s “Parks & Recreation” with Amy Poehler, who was feted last month as Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year.
