Chris Pratt ended up dropping out of college after only one semester when a friend offered to buy him a one-way ticket to Hawaii. Eventually, Chris was homeless and living in van. He only worked to make enough to buy supplies and it was during this time that he was discovered by actress/director Rae Dawn Chong, who gave Chris his first role in her short film, titled Cursed Part 3 (2000). Two years later he had a regular role on the popular and long-running TV series Everwood. Since then, Chris has starred in some of the most popular film franchises, including Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World.
