Chris Pratt has an idea of who should be the new FBI director.
President Donald Trump fired James Comey from his position as FBI director on Tuesday. Trump said that Comey “wasn’t doing a good job” in the role.
Trump’s decision came after Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, wrote a letter recommending Comey be fired, The New York Times reported.
Comey had asked Rosenstein for more resources and money in order to investigate Trump’s dealings with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to The Times.
It remains unclear who will take over for Comey as FBI director, but Chris Pratt, and Twitter, have an idea.
Many feel that Burt Macklin, the fictional FBI agent alter ego of the character Andy Dwyer (played by Chris Pratt) on the show “Parks and Recreation” should receive the role.
Pratt responded to the news in his own tweet, telling people to let him know when they need Macklin to take up the position.
As The Hill reported, the fictional Macklin was fired from the FBI after he was “framed for stealing the president’s rubies.”
