Chris Pratt went through some real deal Navy SEAL training to prep for his role in "Zero Dark Thirty" -- climbing nets, crawling through sand, jumping over stuff -- but despite all the obstacles the actor tells us there's one part of the program that was particularly brutal.
Pratt -- who also stars on "Parks & Recreation" -- was out in NY yesterday when we talked about the legendary obstacle course at the Naval Amphibious Base Coronado near San Diego.
