Chris Pratt gets Pudding honour

Chris Pratt has been named Man of the Year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals.

Guardians Of The Galaxy actor Chris also co-stars on NBC's Parks And Recreation with Amy Poehler, who was named Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year last week.

Jason Hellerstein, president of the student group, joked: "We vehemently deny that the members of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals are obsessed with Parks And Recreation."

Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the US's oldest undergraduate drama troupe, dating back to the late 18th century.

Their latest announcement said Chris became "a bona fide Hollywood heavyweight" in the past year.

The Lego Movie star will receive his pudding pot on February 6, following a parade through Harvard Square and a roast. Amy Poehler will be honoured on January 29.

Last year's winners were Dame Helen Mirren and Neil Patrick Harris.
