Chris Pratt is spreading holiday cheer — with some help from Kevin Bacon!
On Tuesday, the 43-year-old actor shared some special behind-the-scenes footage and photos on Instagram from his new Disney+ film, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. The photos and videos featured the one-and-only Bacon, Pratt's co-star in the holiday film.
In the first video, Pratt is seen looking around in awe at the intricate holiday set before breaking into a big smile at the end. The second video features the actor nodding excitedly while mouthing, "Kevin Bacon," before the camera pans to Bacon, 64, chatting with some other actors on set.
The Guardians star also shared a couple of photos including one of Pom Klementieff in character as Mantis as well as a shot of Bacon chatting with the same three actors from Pratt's video.
