On Sunday, Pratt posted a photo on Instagram showing the muscles he’s packed on prepping for a role in Guardians of the Galaxy, which he captioned thusly: “Six months no beer. #GOTG Kinda douchey to post this but my brother made me.”
Pratt’s photo got us thinking about ways — hey now, get your mind out of the gutter! — the NBC comedy’s writers could incorporate his fine form into a killer story arc. Below are five of our suggestions. Check ’em out, then brainstorm your own in the comments section!
1 | The “evil twin” story arc has rocked many a soap opera — but is it really such a stretch to envision Andy’s long lost brother Randy bringing madness, mischief or even murder to the city of Pawnee?
2 | Andy spends his summer participating in a season of NBC’s The Biggest Loser, returning home a lot more fit — and a little more famous. (OK, maybe not the world’s funniest idea, but you know those suits at the Peacock net love themselves some intra-network synergy.)
3 | With April away at vet school, Andy spends more and more time at the gym, but begins to attract unwanted attention from a variety of single ladies. This development brings out April’s inner banshee, and she sets out on a secret course to destroy every woman with designs on her hubby.
4 | Andy’s alter-ego, Bert Macklin, goes undercover to expose an illegal steroid ring at a local senior citizen’s facility.
5 | Inspired by April’s enjoyment of an on-demand viewing of Magic Mike, Andy sets out on a misguided (and short-lived) course to become an exotic dancer — and help her pay for school in the process.
