WATCH: Chris Pratt Auditions For ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

How Jennifer Lawrence Prepared for Her Sex Scene with Chris Pratt
Oscar hopefuls and future Chris Pratt co-stars, take note...

Good thing he landed the role!

It’s pretty hard to imagine the hit 2014 movie Guardians of the Galaxy without Chris Pratt in the lead role, but yes, there were days when he was only in consideration.

Thanks to the good people over at Yahoo! Movies, we now have an early audition tape of Pratt and his co-star Dave Bautista, who played Drax in the movie, going through their lines for a scene.

They’re both wearing costumes that are slightly different than those they ended up wearing (or not wearing, in Dave’s case) in the final version of the film, but you can see the scene taking shape.

We’re guessing producers were glad they chose Pratt for the lead role, considering what a smash hit the Marvel movie ended up to be.

The movie raked in a whopping $773.3 million worldwide and was the highest-grossing superhero film of the year.

As far as sequels go, Pratt told GQ he signed a multi-film contract.

“I’m tied to doing three more, or five more Guardians of the Galaxy or whatever it is, you know, two more Guardians, plus another couple.”

Thanks for being specific, Chris.
