ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Jimmy Kimmel Live! turned to celebrity guest hosts this week as Jimmy Kimmel is at home with his family after his infant sonBilly‘s latest heart surgery, which took place Monday morning and was successful.

In Kimmel’s stead, Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt hosted Monday’s program and after the monologue, brought out musical guest Chris Stapleton to sing a duet. The two sang together at one of Stapleton’s concerts in Nashville in October, so Pratt wanted to return the favor with a “cheesy duet.” They randomly selected a song from a spinning wheel that included cheesy duets such as “Opposites Attract,” “Don’t Know Much” and “I’ve Had the Time of My Life,” from Dirty Dancing, which ended up being the song they sang.

Also during the monologue, Pratt announced that he was going to share teaser for the trailer of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Prior to showing the seconds-long clip, he brought out his co-star, Bryce Dallas Howard and the two took questions from the audience about the new film, which comes out next summer.

Much like his character Andy Dwyer from Parks and Recreation, Pratt played the fool to Howard, looking baffled and concerned after her eloquent answers. When asked by an audience member, “What did you like most about the new Jurassic World movie?” Howard replied, “I loved the way the movie asks difficult questions about humanity’s increasing ability to manipulate and control nature, and the complexities involved in harnessing that power.” When it was his turn, Pratt said, “Uh… I loved the awesome dinosaurs.”

Later, during interview segments, Pratt drank beers with guest Margot Robbie and Tennessee whiskey with Stapleton.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on ABC and returns Tuesday night with guest host Tracee Ellis Ross.
