Actor CHRIS PRATT's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' stunt double TONY McFARR is dead

Thursday, May 16, 2024 - Tony McFarr, the stuntman who has played a double for some of Hollywood's biggest stars, especially Chris Pratt, has passed on at the age of 47.

He died on Monday, May 13, at his home just outside Orlando. His family doesn't know the exact circumstances of his death just yet. His mother, Donna, told TMZ he was active and healthy.

The medical examiner's office is running toxicology tests on Tony's corpse. The Orange County Medical Examiner also confirmed that an official cause is still pending.

Tony began his stunt career in the industry in an episode of the network television hit "Bones" back in 2011. He went on to perform stunts in well-known projects like "Homeland," "Teen Wolf," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1," "Furious 7," "Captain America: Civil War," "The Accountant," and "Allegiant" among many more films.

McFarr developed a relationship with Pratt over time, first doubling as him in "Jurassic World" in 2015 and, he took on the job again in "Passengers," "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" ... where he suffered a nasty fall.

Tony also showed off his acting chops over the year, racking up a few acting credits in shows like "Macgyver," "Burn Notice," and “One Tree Hill.”

In more recent years, it seems Tony turned his attention to restaurant ownership, opening up a couple eateries down in Florida including Reel Bowls, a poke and salad stop with a film theme near Orlando.

Tony is survived by his daughter, his sister, and his mom and dad. His family is getting together in the next few weeks for a celebration of his life. He'll be buried near his grandmother in Pennsylvania.
