The proof is in the pudding. Chris Pratt and wife Anna Faris are raising a little genius.

“He’ll totally surprise me with the things he’ll say, maybe a week after he heard me say it,” he told PEOPLE of his son Jack, 1 , at the Cinema Society screening of his new film The LEGO Movie in N.Y.C. Wednesday night.

“I’ll say, ‘Where’s your head?’ and he’ll point to his head. And I’ll say, ‘Put the sock on your nose,’ and he’ll put it on his nose. It’s just weird,” Pratt said.

And the learning doesn’t stop at pointing to his head and nose.

“[He’ll repeat]” toys, colors, body parts like knee, elbow, hand. You get the sense that he knows a lot more than he’s saying because he’s in that observational mode,” he said.

At the rate Jack is going, he’ll be copying his dad’s workout habits in no time.

“Every day is something new. I’m noticing he’s really observant. He’s watching everything around him and every day is a learning, moment,” said Pratt.

Pratt says Jack has a little while to go before he can start watching his films. “We keep him away from the screen right now, but I’m sure we’ll be plopping him in front of the screen in no time.”

He adds that without a doubt, Jack will be a fan of LEGO.

“That’s going to be playing over and over for my child in a few years, so that way I can hear my voice over and over,” he quipped.
