When we heard that Vince Vaughn would be starring in a remake of the 2011 French-Canadian comedy Starbuck, we were a bit skeptical mostly because it seems he has been adding a lot to his plate and not following through but also because this was a remake of a movie that was literally just made. Now we have validation that it is indeed happening under the wing of original director Ken Scott and returning producer Andre Rouleau.
Parks & Recreation actor Chris Pratt has just climbed aboard the project about a middle-aged man who fathers 533 children via sperm donation. His role in all this will be that of a single father of four who acts as the lawyer for Vaughn’s character.
This is pretty good news for Pratt who has been around for a while with a number of big screen supporting roles. He was most recently seen in The Five-Year Engagement and Moneyball and will next been seen in Zero: Dark Thirty and Movie 43. In addition to those, he will also play a part in the animated Lego movie entitled Lego: The Piece of Resistance.
The actor remains a cast member on the NBC comedy Parks & Recreation which was given a 13-episode order for the 2012-13 television season. There is a little bit of uncertainty surrounding the show’s ability to go forward, but if it does not work out he could always join the Brady Bunch reboot that Vaughn is spearheading. The project is said to center around a recently-divorced Bobby Brady and I probably am not the only one who would totally be up for seeing Pratt in the role.
