Chris Pratt suggested that his "Parks and Recreation" alter-ego Burt Macklin was ready to take over for fired FBI director James Comey in a Twitter post Wednesday.

Pratt, better known today for as star of Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" franchise, played the character Andy Dwyer on the former hit NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation," that ran from 2009 to 2015, noted Entertainment Weekly.

While many expressed surprise when President Donald Trump fired Comey Tuesday evening, Pratt apparently saw a job opening.

"Dwyer, fans will remember, had a ridiculous crime-fighting alter ego, Burt Tyrannosaurus Macklin of the FBI," Dan Heching, of Entertainment Weekly, wrote. "And that agent is available for duty."

Pratt tweeted out a short video of the Macklin character with the message: "Just lemme know."

"FBI director would be quite a career reversal for the 'Parks and Rec' fantasy character, who was fired from the agency after being 'framed for stealing the president's rubies,'" The Hill writer Tristan LeJeune said.

Fans chimed in on Twitter, some offering their own photos and brief video in support of Macklin as the next FBI director.
