In a move set to stun dozens, Executive Producer JJ Abrams has announced that Jesus Christ will be making a 3 week special appearance on LOST for the May "Sweeps Season". Honestly, as a regular viewer of the show, I can't say I'm surprised. Straight up, the show wasn't making any sense before, and having Jesus show up on an island in the mid-Pacific wouldn't be the weirdest thing to happen on that show (or have you forgotten about Smoke Monster or the four-toed mega-statue?)
I kid, I kid. Thankfully we will not be hearing "Jesus, please put down the semi-automatic weapon!"
The above photos are stills from "The Visual Bible: The Gospel of John", a movie-DVD that was released a couple weeks ago. The main actor, Henry Ian Cusick, is known for his role as Desmond Hume on LOST... Henry is going for a slightly different role this time around. Instead of portraying a Irish marathoner with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome known to travel time and run around naked... now he's playing Jesus Christ. No typecasting there. Don't think Henry will do much method acting for this one. The death scene is brutal!
Note to LOST writers, please don't put Jesus Christ on the Island.
Thanks to, well, somebody for finding this. I read this a week ago on somebody's blog, and when I went to find the post again... I couldn't! If you wrote about this, let me know so I can give you credit! Sorry!
Thanks to Jon Sampson for finding this info for me. You can read his post, but I think you'll like mine better.
