Chris Pratt was recently a guest on the Sway in the Morning radio show, and a caller asked him if fans had actually seen the last of legendary FBI agent Burt Macklin. And, even though he’s arguably one of the world’s biggest movie stars, Pratt said he would “never rule out” a Parks and Rec reunion.
There’s jobs that I’ve done in the past where I could safely say I would never do that again, but Parks and Rec is not one of them. We did do seven seasons, you know, somewhere along the lines of 150 episodes, so eventually you start running out of stories to tell, but because of the nature of that show kind of mimicking time, I definitely wouldn’t rule out seeing it again, seeing us get back together for a movie, or for another season down the line, a possible spinoff, or whatever.
I love the character of Andy Dwyer so much. I put so much of my heart and soul into that character. My comedic clown, my comedic shtick I’ve been working on since I could walk is that character. He’s the personification of everything about me that is comedic … I would definitely bring it back.
Obviously, that doesn’t mean anything is imminent (or even likely), but, the fact that the series biggest breakout star would consider revisiting the show, is a good sign for the future. Discuss
Last night on the semifinals of The Voice, contestant Christian Cuevas (who is on Alicia Keys' Team), may have performed the evening's most memorable song with his cover of Israel Houghton’s “To Worship You I Live,” which featured a full-on worship choir.
Keys said that the song was “a dream-come-true performance,” and Blake Shelton added, “Whether you’re doing an uptempo, fun song or a sad song or a song of faith and worship like you just did, you have the ability to make us feel ...That’s the mark of a great artist.” Discuss

By now, you’ve probably seen some of the controversy surrounding Buzzfeed and a recent article they published about the church attended by Chip and Joanna Gaines, the stars of the series Fixer Upper.
The story, titled “Chip And Joanna Gaines’ Church Is Firmly Against Same-Sex Marriage” has been updated several times since it was first released on Nov. 29, but says their church “takes a hard line against same-sex marriage and promotes converting LGBT people into being straight.” The story poses the questions, “So are the Gaineses against same-sex marriage? And would they ever feature a same-sex couple on the show, as have HGTV’s House Hunters and Property Brothers?”
In a statement in response to the piece, HGTV said, “We don’t discriminate against members of the LGBT community in any of our shows. HGTV is proud to have a crystal clear, consistent record of including people from all walks of life in its series.”
In an interview with Todd Starnes, the church’s pastor, Jimmy Seibert, said, "We are not only not anti-gay, but we are pro-helping people in their journey to find out who God is and who He has made them to be.
Now, for the first time since the story was published, one of the stars of the series has spoken out. Though it’s unclear if they will “make a statement” about the story or their personal beliefs, he called on fans to show respect to the writers behind it:
Regardless of our decision to make a statement about all this craziness, or not, I ask that people please! respect @KateAurthur & @ginamei
