Chris Pratt may be busy filming sequels to his mega-hits “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World,” but the actor is making some time to woo his real-life wife Anna Faris in an episode of “Mom.”

Entertainment Weekly reports that the “Parks and Recreation” alum will be guest starring in an upcoming Season 4 episode of the CBS comedy. The episode will air early 2017 and star Pratt as Nick, a desirable horseback riding instructor who Christy (Faris) falls for. However, she might find it hard to seduce the hunk, as he’s Marjorie’s (Mimi Kennedy) nephew and strictly off-limits.

“So excited for us to act together again,” Faris wrote on Twitter, with Pratt replying, “Can’t wait to work with you again honey!!!”
