Which actors would you cast as your favourite biblical characters?

    I had a somewhat off topic but really fun chat on this topic on the hub
    http://hubpages.com/hub/Bible-vs-Scienc … patibility

    I though it might be fun to get some more input on this very trivial issue.
    Assuming we have an unlimited budged who would you get for the movie version of the bible?

    I am guessing Tom Cruise took himself out of the running, but Arnie would make a fine Jesus --> "I'll be back!", Chuck Norris could not play Jesus since the nails would never go through his hands.....

        Very true, I was thinking of Chuck as Samson, but then cutting the hair would destroy the scissors plus a mere building collapsing on him would not even scratch Norris

          lol   lol he does thousands of push ups and sit ups , he is
          a world champion, so maybe you can consider him for some other role as Jesus wouldn't fight back, wasn't trained in the martial arts perhaps wink
          He would be perfect for Samson , just get some cheap , really cheap scissors wink
          Some effects for the collapsing building are possible , the computer can make anyone into Samson smile

            that's going to cost millions on the CGI budget, but you have a good point... we'll just have to cut back on the parting of the red sea

    Madonna "like a virgin" as Mary?

    3 wise men, the wayans brothers

    morgan freeman can reprise his role as god

    pacino made a good satan

    George Carlin as Abraham ( just because he is the man)

    methuselah = George Burns or the old guy from grumoier old men (burgess meredith ?)

      interesting choice for Abraham, although I'm pretty sure coming back from the dead is not something Carlin would have agreed with.

      I can picture your wise men, not a bad choice.

      Was also considering Vin Diesel for John the baptist, nobody dunks like Diesel!

      Might be a bit old for the part, besides, who's ever going to buy the virgin bit? what about Lady Gaga?

    And I think Billy Connolly is a natural for John the Baptist.

        You never heard Woody Allen's "deer skit"? A classic. Long story short - deer shot in woods by Hollywood big shot. Strapped to car. Drives home with Deer. Deer comes back to life, and becomes part of the Hollywood "scene."

        Like the resurrection story. Only entertaining....................

        And less fighting...............

        And TRUE..........

    I believe the role of Sean Penn in I am Sam would be a perfect fit to play Jesus Christ. Why you ask? If Jesus came in our time right now and claimed to be Jesus, would you believe him? Or would he look crazy to you?smile

      hmm, interesting choice for Jesus, wonder if Dustin Hoffman would be up for the part of Moses... "the square root of command number 123545888975512... can't do that, can't do that, can't do that"
