Chris Pratt has no problem getting into the Hasty Pudding spirit.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star headed to Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Friday to be honored as Harvard University s Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ “Man of the Year,” he had no problem hamming it up onstage with the school’s prominent theatrical troop.

“I m just having the best time,” said Pratt, 35, while wearing a sequined bra over his classic tuxedo. “This has been a truly remarkable day. When I was in 5th grade I had a Harvard sweatshirt I only could have owned that if it was for sale at Kmart for $5 or less, so I d say you re doing pretty well.”

The troop did all they could to roast the Jurassic World star, including daring him to channel his Parks and Recreation character Andy Dwyer s alter ego, “Johnny Karate.” (Which he did successfully, chopping slabs of wood with both his hands and his head. Maybe it was the 5 Hour Energy and vodka he confessed to drinking beforehand?)

The fun didn’t stop there – when asked to give one of the group members, who was dressed in drag, a lap dance, Pratt took it in stride and shook his butt in their face.

This isn’t the first Hasty Pudding honor for the Parks and Recreation cast as Pratt’s costar, Amy Poehler, stopped by Cambridge in January to scoop up her award for “Woman of the Year.”

Earlier in the evening, Pratt headed to Italian restaurant Rialto in the Charles Hotel for a laid-back dinner. Clad in a black tux, Pratt ate insalata and Pollo al Mattone, a smoked chicken grilled under a brick with ginger, beets, chanterelles, cracked wheat, and goat cheese. He capped off the meal with Torta di Mele e Mandorle, an apple and almond cake with apple-lemon curd, chestnut honey, apple chip, and almond gelato.

According to staff at the restaurant, the very nice Pratt was looking quite buff.

Earlier on Friday, Pratt teamed up with fellow Marvel superhero, Captain America star Chris Evans, to visit kids at Christopher s Haven in Boston as part of their Super Bowl bet. (Pratt was rooting for the Seattle Seahawks while Evans bet in favor of his hometown team, the New England Patriots.) “Christopher s Haven is a wonderful place. It was really beautiful,” Pratt said after his roast. “I said it before and plan to live by it: If Guardians of the Galaxy was successful enough and if it could make an impact on a kid s life, I said I would be there.

As for whether he d bet against Patriots super fan Chris Evans again, Pratt said the possibility is always there.

Hopefully next year in the Super Bowl,” said Pratt. “I want a rematch.”
