In a recent interview with Stephen Colbert, actor Chris Pratt discussed the time he and some friends erected a huge cross on Easter weekend.

According to, Pratt posted a series of pictures to Instagram last Easter showing himself and two friends erecting a huge cross in the Texas desert.

In his recent interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Pratt explained to Colbert that he felt it was symbolic to erect the cross on the day before Easter.

“They had this big cross. It was on a Saturday, the day before Easter, and they said, ‘You know, we got this big cross. We gotta bring it up this great big hill at some point.’ I said, ‘Let’s do it right now … I want to do it. And, it’s Saturday before Easter, if you think about it, that’s what Jesus was doing 2000-something years before on a Saturday before Easter, was carrying a cross up a hill!' … It took us like two days. The thing was super heavy, and it was like just so rewarding and awesome.”
