Pratt, who voiced the lead role of Emmet Brickowski in "The Lego Movie," surprised Dylan Prunty, a boy with a mitochondrial disorder, who's been dubbed "Lego Kid" for his love of the toys.

In a recent interview with Panzer TV, the 35-year-old actor explained that he took home pieces of his "Guardians Of The Galaxy" costume to visit sick children in the hospital:

"I stole the jacket and some of the wardrobe so that, if this movie comes out and does what everyone hopes it can, I can follow the example of someone -- say, like, a Russell Wilson, you know -- and go visit kids," Pratt said, referring to the Seattle Seahawks quarterback who visits children's hospitals every week.

"If it was a big enough movie, to where it would mean something to a kid who’s sick in the hospital for ['Guardians' character] Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I’ll do that," Pratt said. "I think that’s awesome, man. That would give me real meaning for this movie, you know?"

A Lego man and Star-Lord? Looks like Pratt is keeping his word.
