McFarr was a stunt actor for more than a decade, beginning with a 2011 episode of Bones as Geoff Stults' stunt double. He continued to work steadily on shows like Teen Wolf, Homeland, Sleepy Hollow, Ballers, The Walking Dead, and Manhunt.

On the big screen, McFarr served as Pratt's stunt double on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Jurassic World, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Other notable film credits include Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, both of the Hunger Games: Mockingjay movies, Furious 7, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Pratt, who would occasionally post about McFarr on social media, paid tribute to the late stunt actor in a statement shared on his Instagram Story on Thursday, writing that he was "devastated" to learn of McFarr's passing.

"We did several movies together. We golfed, drank whiskey, smoked cigars, and spent endless hours on set," Pratt wrote. "I'll never forget his toughness. I remember he took a nasty shot to the head (in the title sequence of Guardians 2) and got several staples in his head — he came right back to work ready to go again. He was an absolute stud. He was always a gentleman and professional. He'll be missed. My prayers go out to his friends and family, especially his daughter."
