When the 40th season of "Saturday Night Live" opens, first-time host Chris Pratt will be at the helm. And if anyone is wondering if the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star will bring big laughs with him, well, wonder no more.
Pratt's "SNL" promos prove he's got what it takes to kick the season off right.
There are plenty of bits worth watching, but anyone who's a fan of the actor's transformed physique has to appreciate one exchange with returning cast member Kate McKinnon.
While Pratt explained that hosting the show was a dream come true, McKinnon interrupted him to say, "No one cares, Chris. Just show them your abs."
He resisted before delivering a stupor-inducing flash to McKinnon.
"Now I feel dirty," he deadpanned.
Fans who follow him on Instagram know better.
Be sure to check out the full clip for other great gags, including a demonstration of Pratt's pickle jar-opening prowess.
Pop music princess Ariana Grande will join him for the "SNL" season premiere, which airs Sept. 27 at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
