Chris Pratt stopped to shake hands and thank WWII Veterans at his premiere Wednesday night for “The Terminal List,” saying he wanted to “honor them for their great sacrifice.”

During the star-studded red carpet premiere held in Los Angeles, the 43-year-old actor was seen in clips shared by Variety, Associated Press and Reuters posing for pictures and thanking the men in uniform, who he praised as members of the “greatest generation.”

Pratt told reporters he has an “absolute affinity for our Navy SEAL community, for our men and women in uniform and especially for our special operators and all they go through and all they sacrifice.”


“Well this is a wonderful group of extraordinary men of the greatest generation,” the “Jurassic World” star told AP.

“These are WWII veterans and every year they take a pilgrimage back to Normandy,” he shared. “Thrilled to see them here. It was a surprise to me, I didn’t know they were going to be here. And it was an opportunity to kind of just catch up with them.”

“I’ve been following their story,” he added. “And I saw them and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, we got to spend time together.’ You know, there’s not enough time in the world. Certainly on a press line where everything’s fifteen second bites. I’d like to really sit down and really, really talk with them and honor them for their great sacrifice.”

In the one video from the night’s festivities, we can see the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star smiling and shaking hands with one of the veterans as we can overhear Pratt telling the WWII hero — who said that he served in the U.S. Army — that the gentleman “looked fantastic” in his uniform.

“You look fantastic, you look sharp,” the actor shared. “You look fantastic sir, thank you.”

“The Terminal List” is a series that can be seen on Amazon Prime that is based on former Navy Seal author Jack Carr’s book by the same name. It is about “a former Navy SEAL officer investigates why his entire platoon was ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission,” a description on IMDb reads.  It hits the streaming site on July 1.
