Thank goodness for Anna Faris and her excellent Hollywood connections.
For the Jan. 19 episode of Mom on CBS, Parks and Recreation funnyman-turned-action star Chris Pratt will star opposite his wife, Faris — and EW has the exclusive first look.
In the episode, Pratt will play Nick, a charming horseback riding instructor whom Christy (Faris) decides to pursue — despite the fact he’s the nephew of Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), who declared him off-limits.
This isn’t the first time Faris and Pratt have worked together. Having married in 2009, the couple appeared in What’s Your Number? and Take Me Home Tonight in 2011, followed by Movie 43 in 2013. This is the first time Pratt has appeared on Faris’ comedy since its debut in 2013.
Mom airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
