Chris Pratt Explains The Scary Story Behind That Headshot

NBC

Chris Pratt's headshot from 2000 quickly went viral when he tweeted it earlier this month. On a visit to "The Tonight Show," Pratt told Jimmy Fallon the story of how "Douchemaster McChest" -- his words, not ours! -- came to be, and how it got Pratt his first big role on "Everwood."

Turns out, Pratt was 20 years old, living out of his car in Los Angeles and trying to become an actor. While at the post office, a photographer spotted him, asked him to come back to his apartment, shower and change so he could take his picture for free. Luckily, this did not turn into the opening scene of a "Law & Order: SVU" episode.
