Your chance to re-make NT history

The Church Audiovisual Department Casting Office is looking to fill 30 plus roles for a new NT film (hat tip to c-bones). I’m going to apply as the “Possessed Man.”

Stay in touch with Patheos Mormon on Facebook:
  • Kevin Barney

    One of my classics professors thought I would make a good Zeus. I forget; does Zeus make an appearance in the NT?

  • Ardis E. Parshall

    I was thinking of trying out for “woman with an issue” until I clicked over and saw they were too specific about the issue.

  • g.wesley

    Acts 14:12, Kevin. And they are indeed looking for someone to play Barbabas.

  • g.wesley

    make that barnabas

  • WVS

    If I can’t be an apostle, I’m not even trying.

  • oudenos

    Well unless they are going to do the best scene in entire Bible, the possession/exorcism scene with the suicidal swine, I don’t want in. Oh wait. I just noticed that Pilate is included in the casting call. I would totally jump at the chance to utter that line of lines, “And what is truth?”

  • oudenos

    Also, if pushed, I would probably also play the scantily clad young man who runs off naked in that awkward scene in Mark 14:51-2. The only hang up is that my body isn’t Adam-smooth and 100% Adam-hairless.

    i would have thought you’d want the role of simon of cyrene.

  • Niklas

    I would like to be Master of Ceremony at the Canaan Wedding. Being MC means I need to rap, right?

    Zeus doesn’t show up until years later when Christian artists are looking for models for the father and O.T. prophets
