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
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
He would be perfect for Samson , just get some cheap , really cheap scissors
Some effects for the collapsing building are possible , the computer can make anyone into Samson
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!
Madonna as, well, Madonna, I suppose...
Edit - pipped at the post by 2 seconds!!
I saw that 18 and 20, but now its ays 4 and 5 minutes, you just look unoriginal now, haha
And I think Billy Connolly is a natural for John the Baptist.
Hey sooner, nice to see you...
I don't remember the deer though....
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...............
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?
