However, he did not receive a callback. Pratt explained that he typically received feedback from casting directors, but on that occasion, the feedback was negative. He received a comment that implied he overacted and should dial it back.
Despite his initial struggles, Pratt did not give up. He continued to audition for every Marvel film that came out, hoping for a chance to get his big break.
Perseverance Pays Off
Pratt’s perseverance finally paid off when director James Gunn was urged to see him during casting for the 2014 original film. The initial audition did not go well, but Gunn worked with Pratt to smooth out the rough edges. Eventually, Pratt landed the role of Star-Lord. This role led to starring in all three Guardians of the Galaxy films and cameo appearances in other Marvel movies.
Pratt’s story shows that perseverance pays off, and one should never give up on their dreams. He continued to audition despite being rejected multiple times and eventually landed a role that turned his career around.
