Chris Pratt’s Jason Statham impersonation is brilliant

Weeks after he wowed us all with his impressive TOWIE impression, Chris Pratt has now added ‘Jason Statham’ to his repertoire of English accents.

The clip was part of Pratt’s recent stint hosting Saturday Night Live but was cut back due to timing issues, though now fortunately the TV show has now released it in all its glory: bald cap, leather jacket, gruff voice, Pratt is advertising Jason Steakums, a barely edible meat pie made from “100 per cent cow face."

Given The Stath is about as well known for passable accents as he is a full head of hair, there’s something strange to seeing an American pull off a semi convincing impression of the English hard man.

And Pratt wasn’t done with winning the internet there. On Sunday, the actor sent his Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn to deliver an acceptance speech at the Saturn Awards written by Pratt himself, which read:

James Gunn is the future. He's a genius. I tried every day to do just one thing, give myself over to the creative vision of the same man who is up there on that — [aside from Gunn] he spells "there wrong" — on that stage now, accepting this award on my behalf. It is truly appropriate for James Gunn to be on that stage in front of all of you. He is, and always will be forever, my trusted leader and friend.

And ladies, he is single, I think. Right? Are you? We haven't talked in a couple weeks. Doesn't matter; he is single tonight.

I'd like to open the bidding at $1 for James. Haha, is he blushing? James, are you red? Ask the audience if you are red. Wait, you have to read this verbatim because if you don't, that's illegal. My name is James Gunn. Am I red?

What did they say? Text me.

I love you James. Chris Pratt loves me; my dreams have come true. Chris Pratt loves the troops. Vote Trump. Haha, you're fired! Love that show. But seriously, God bless America, and God bless James Gunn. 

More Chris Pratt awesomeness as we get it.
