NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Chris Pratt explained the importance of correctly and honorably portraying the military ahead of the drop of his new Prime Video series “The Terminal List.”

Pratt stars as a Navy SEAL in “The Terminal List” along with co-star Taylor Kitsch. Pratt’s character returns home after his Navy SEAL platoon is ambushed to find his loved ones are in danger, according to the show’s synopsis.

The “Zero Dark Thirty” star explained how portraying a military character is different than a superhero in a recent interview.

“What makes these men so particularly special is their mortality,” Pratt said. “You know, they step into these fights knowing they can die. They don’t do it because they have a bulletproof vest and they’re faster than a speeding bullet … These are guys who have each others’ backs and who routinely do sacrifice their lives in the line of duty.”
