Chris Pratt tweets Parks and Rec character's availability to replace Comey as FBI director

Andy Dwyer’s alter-ego, FBI agent Burt Macklin, is ready and willing

Posted on

While the news of President Donald Trump’s abrupt firing of FBI director James Comey spread shockwaves throughout Washington, D.C., and beyond, one celeb saw this turn of events as potentially working in his favor. Namely, Chris Pratt, who brought Andy Dwyer to life in the beloved and dearly departed Parks and Recreation.

Dwyer, fans will remember, had a ridiculous crime-fighting alter ego, Burt Tyrannosaurus Macklin of the FBI. And that agent is available for duty.

The Jurassic World star tweeted a gif of Pratt-as-Dwyer-as-Macklin leaping ninja-style in front of Mt. Rushmore and bursting through an office door. “Just lemme know,” the message reads.

Fans are on board:

In today’s age of Antonio Sabato Jr, The Rock, and Oprah considering runs for office, stranger things have happened.
