Chris Pratt Tweets Hilarious Idea for James Comey Replacement

The ”Guardians of the Galaxy“ references a former alter-ego in response to Trump’s latest firing

With the news that FBI Director James Comey was fired on Tuesday, many people wondered who could be appointed to the post.

One person with a good idea? Actor Chris Pratt, who offered up somebody he was close to for the position: Burt Macklin.

Pratt played Andy Dwyer on the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation” for seven seasons, and in that time the character struggled quite a bit with who he wanted to become. One of Dwyer’s dreams was to become a police officer, or work in law enforcement. In the quest of that dream, he created the alter ego Burt Tyrannosaurus Macklin, who was one of the top members of the FBI. Dwyer would jump into the character when there was a case to solve or the Pawnee, Indiana government needed his expertise.

Macklin is certainly qualified for the job.

Pratt posted a gif on Twitter of Macklin taking a bullet in front of Mount Rushmore, showing that he would do anything to protect his country.

“Just lemme know,” Pratt wrote in a tweet sent at 2:30 a.m.

Others on Twitter agreed with the suggestion.

Pratt is busy being a movie star in multiple blockbuster franchises, including Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and in “Jurassic World.” Maybe in between his many movies he can find the time to save the country and investigate the current administration’s ties with Russia.

Let’s hope that in the event this does happen, we can see Janet Snakehole (April Ludgate, played by Aubrey Plaza) around Washington.
