In what is sure to be a fun situation of art imitating life, Chris Pratt is making his return to television on his wife Anna Faris' sitcom, Mom.
Certainly, this is not the first time the two actors and real-life couple have worked together; the couple have worked together in What’s Your Number? and Take Me Home Tonight in 2011, followed by Movie 43 in 2013. This acting dynamic duo are also busy parents to their four-year-old son Jack.
Pratt's appearance on Mom does mark the first time he's appeared on the show, though, and the actor seems excited to show up on his wife's sitcom.
"Being her guest on Fridays when they would tape, part of me was always a little jealous that I couldn't be out there on that stage with them and doing the curtain call at the end." He adds, "This is really cool."
Pratt also tweeted his excitement about working with his wife again.
Faris was also thrilled to be working with her husband again.
Pratt plays Nick, a handsome and charming horseback riding instructor who Anna Faris' Christy meets while researching potential spots for her son to take horseback riding lessons. She decides to pursue him (naturally) in spite of the fact that Nick is Marjorie's (Mimi Kennedy) nephew and has been declared off limits by Marjorie. She decides to go for the relationship anyways, supported as always by her mom Bonnie (Allison Janney).
It seems that 2017 is featuring some reunions for Mom; not only are Faris and Pratt working together on screen again, Janney recently had the opportunity to work opposite one of her former co-stars from The West Wing, Bradley Whitford.
As for the relationship shared between Faris' Christy and Pratt's Nick, Faris told Entertainment Tonight that "We get to have this really nice relationship."
Pratt added, "We have a sex scene, like a sexy scene. We've been rehearsing that for 10 years."
Pratt also noted that he had a good time hanging out at his spouse's place of work. While he is doubtless aware of his wife's work schedule, he may have had few opportunities in recent months to visit her on set. Pratt's currently hard at work, putting the finishing touches on Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and filming the sequel to Jurassic World.
"It's really nice to see your spouse in their work environment. Well, I don't know if it is for everyone. It is for me because my wife is Anna Faris," he says.
The couple continues to be the #RelationshipGoals for so many.
Chris Pratt's appearance on #Mom is this Thursday, January 19.
