Trivia:

While on the National Public Radio show "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!," Colin Hanks said that one of the bands in which he was a bass player was called "Pontius Pilot" (a play on the name of Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect who ordered the crucifixion of Jesus). Hanks said that when he joined the band, he had no idea who Pilate was. See more »
