Aubrey Plaza thinks Chris Pratt is just as much marriage material as Andy Dwyer.

The actress, who played Pratt’s on-screen wife, April Ludgate, in Parks and Recreation, has nothing but kind words for her former costar, 39, who married Katherine Schwarzenegger earlier this month.

“Well, I mean, [Pratt’s character] Andy Dwyer was the best husband that anyone could ask for. I think Chris Pratt… I think there’s a lot of similarities between Andy and Chris Pratt just as there are with me and April Ludgate,” Plaza, who stars in Child’s Play, tells PEOPLE.

The characters were fan favorites, with Plaza’s pessimistic, sarcastic April providing the perfect foil to Pratt’s lovable goofball Andy.

“So, my bet is that he’s gonna be the most fun husband ever and I think that girl is a lucky, lucky, lucky gal,” Plaza says. “Yeah, it’s a jackpot.”

A source recently told PEOPLE that the couple are already looking to the future, and hope to have a child of their own sooner rather than later.
