Chris Pratt predicted his starring role in Jurassic World seven years ago during a behind-the-scenes shoot for Parks and Recreation.

The video – which was filmed back in 2008 for Parks and Rec's second season DVD — shows Pratt joking about receiving text messages from famed Hollywood director and producer Steven Spielberg about starring in the upcoming “Jurassic Park 4" film.

"I just got a text message from Steven Spielberg. God, it’s so annoying.”

Surprisingly, seven years later Pratt was eventually cast as Owen Grady, a former US Navy cadet tasked with training Velociraptors, in the reprise of Jurassic Park.

“Sorry Steven, I was asked by Parks and Recreation/NBC to do ‘behind the scenes.’ Which is to say, everyone else was asked and said no," he replies.

"But I have no shame, as you know by the endless gift baskets. I'll have to get back to you later about Jurassic Park 4.”
