Actor Chris Pratt expressed his sympathies after finding out about the death of his stunt double

Tony McFarr, 47, died of undetermined causes on May 13 at his home outside Orlando, per Deadline. The story was originally reported by TMZ and then confirmed on the website of the Wylie-Baxley Funeral Home in Merritt Island, Florida. McFarr’s mother said his death was unexpected, the outlet noted.

Pratt reacted to McFarr’s death on his Instagram Stories. The 44-year-old star said he was “devastated to hear about the loss of my friend and former stunt double.”

“We did several movies together. We golfed, drank whiskey, smoked cigars, and spent endless hours on set. I’ll never forget his toughness,” the actor shared.

McFarr started working as a stunt double in 2011. His credits include “Rock of Ages,” “Teen Wolf,” “The Glades,” “Burn Notice,” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.”

He also worked closely with Pratt, and fans noted the extraordinary physical resemblance between the two. McFarr was the stunt double for Pratt on “Jurassic World,” “Passengers,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” and the 2018 “Jurassic World” sequel, “Fallen Kingdom.” 

Pratt and McFarr were friends for years. The Marvel actor posted photos with his stunt double on several occasions, including after filming “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” in 2016.

“Here’s me and my stunt-man Tony McFarr (also Tommy Harper stunt coordinator and our first AD Lars Winther) on set. Been working with Tony since Jurassic World. Love you buddy! Happy wrap!” Pratt captioned a photo of the two of them in costume.


“Here’s a better view,” he wrote in a second post of the duo standing side by side.

McFarr also doubled for actor Jon Hamm in the 2018 action comedy, “Tag.” He had small acting roles in projects like “One Tree Hill,” “Burn Notice,” “Army Wives,” and “MacGyver.”

Per Deadline, McFarr was a restaurant owner in Florida, with properties including Reel Bowls in Orlando and The Fit Kitchen. The Hollywood stuntman is survived by a daughter, his parents, and a sister.
