Pre-Passengers goodness

Here's a delicious throwback of Chris Pratt singing and playing guitar naked in The O.C.

Before making us laugh in Parks and Recreation and kicking butt in films such as Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt gave us an early taste of his earnest goodness in The O.C.. While he had a considerably bigger part as Bright Abbott in Everwood (you know, that show you occasionally watched on Saturday afternoons when it happened to be on), the 37-year-old also appeared in nine episodes of The CW's crowning glory from 2006 to 2007. Yes, Pratt's one of the famous faces of today who were part of that glorious, Californian sunshine — others included Olivia Wilde, Amber Heard, Shailene Woodley and Bella Heathcote. Back when empire-cut baby doll tops were a thing and the likes of Paris Hilton and Mischa Barton were still relevant, Pratt played Che, Summer's (Rachel Bilson) friend in university.

While the actor's no stranger to showing off his guns now (he just posted two selfies highlighting the bruises he got from filming Passengers), Pratt had an early start to going nude in a season four episode. Singing and playing the guitar naked as Seth (Adam Brody) walks in, he strums the pain of two polar bears dying. Sweet stuff. 

Passengers opens in Singapore on 22 December. For last week's #ManCrushMonday, click here
