A chat with Chris Pratt: From 'Park & Rec's Andy to Brad Pitt's power-hitting co-star

Chris Pratt is living the dream. Discovered by a director while waiting tables in Maui at 19, the Parks & Recreation regular is currently starring alongside Topher Grace, Dan Fogler, and his real-life wife, Anna Faris, in Take Me Home Tonight, which hit theaters Friday. Despite his Cinderella-like beginnings, Pratt isn’t waiting until midnight for his carriage to turn into a pumpkin. The actor has five (count ‘em) movies releasing this year, as well as a Judd Apatow-produced project slated to start filming in April. Oh, and he graces our television sets every Thursday night as Andy Dwyer, Pawnee’s resident hapless shoe shiner. When not teasing us about upcoming episodes of his NBC series, Pratt fills us in on what looks to be a busy box-office year. We must say, we’re impressed. After all, what other actor can claim to play a character named Disgusting Donald, and in the same month, co-star in a sports biopic opposite Brad Pitt?

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, we hear you just got cast in Judd Apatow’s new flick, Five-Year Engagement
CHRIS PRATT: Yeah! It’s a Jason Segel movie with Emily Blunt, and Nicholas Stoller is directing. It’s kind of a romantic comedy in the vein of When Harry Met Sally, so it takes place over several years of these people’s lives. My character is similar to the Bruno Kirby role from When Harry Met Sally. I’m the BFF. READ FULL STORY

Sean Penn pulls out of 'Cartel,' may also depart 'The Three Stooges'

Sean Penn has pulled out of the Asger Leth-directed drama Cartel and may not be able to make the start date of his anticipated MGM comedy The Three Stooges, helmed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly and costarring Jim Carrey and Benicio del Toro, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A source close to Penn tells EW that the actor wants to take some time off to work on his marriage with actress Robin Wright Penn. Twice in the past two years, most recently last month, the couple has seemed on the verge of splitting, before ultimately reconciling.

A Cartel production source says that Penn will be replaced, but a new actor has not been cast yet. Sources close to The Three Stooges are hopeful that Penn will remain in the cast of that film if the beginning of production can be pushed to a later date (it had been eyeing an August start, reportedly). Penn recently wrapped Fair Game, a drama based on former C.I.A. agent Valerie Plame’s memoir. (Additional reporting by Nicole Sperling)

Brangelina in Austin, but a no-show for R.E.M.

Now here’s something we didn’t expect to see at South by Southwest: none other than Angelina Jolie strolling down Congress Ave. (Austin’s main drag) just like any of the other 50,000 out-of-towners who have descended on the Texas capital. There she was on Wednesday, walking sans Brad Pitt, who is also in Austin filming the new Terrence Malick film, Tree of Life (co-starring Sean Penn). EW.com has learned that Pitt requested several tickets to see SXSW’s hottest opening night show, R.E.M. at Stubb’s Wednesday night, but was told that the band had maxed out their guest list, and while they’d happily take care of the super-star couple, they couldn’t accommodate a larger entourage. As far as we could tell, Pitt and Jolie didn’t show after that.
