Premiere Of Universal Pictures' "Jurassic World" - ArrivalsLike his fellow former "Parks and Recreation" costar Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt is also returning to series television, in an upcoming guest starring role on CBS sitcom "Mom."

Entertainment Weekly reports that Pratt will appear on an episode of the series opposite his real-life wife, Anna Faris, who co-headlines the show alongside Allison Janney. In a wink to their offscreen relationship, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star will play a love interest for Faris's character, Christy.

According to EW, Pratt's character is named Nick, and is " a charming ... horseback riding instructor" who catches Christy's eye. The only problem is that he's the nephew of friend and fellow AA member Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), who has "declared him off-limits." We're betting that if Pratt/Nick takes his shirt off, though, even Marjorie would understand Christy falling for him.

The married couple -- who got hitched in 2009 and have a 4-year-old son, Jack -- have starred in several projects together before, including the comedies "What's Your Number?," "Take Me Home Tonight," and "Movie 43." This will be the first time they've appeared opposite each other on the small screen.

"Mom" will return for its fourth season on October 27. Pratt's appearance is slated for an episode that will air sometime in January.
