Random and not so random musings from a 5th generation NE Missourian who became a 1st generation Episcopalian. Let the good times roll!

Ok, I got this idea from reading Fran's post when she suggested Danny DeVito as Zaccheus in a Jesus movie. I told her I get dibs on the demoniac story. I see Randy Quaid as one of the hog farmers saying, "Sumbitch ran our hogs over the cliff!" I also see Harry Dean Stanton as the demoniac.

Here is the first (and hopefully not the last) Kirkepiscatoid School of Film Stay at Home Meme.

Ok, we have all been commissioned to write, "Jesus: The movie you've always wanted to see." Your job, should you choose to accept it, is cast any scene from the Gospels and share any poignant line you feel deserving of this blog. The one requirement is you must use living actors/actresses. Now Go!


Wanda Sykes as the Canaanite woman who argues with Jesus:

"Are you calling me a DOG, Lord?!?! Well let me tell you something, you prejudiced asshole---even the dogs eat the crumbs from the Master's table. And you gonna stand there and tell me you can't heal my sick CHILD because of some 'No Gentile' policy?!?! What kind of bullshit is that?!?!?"


Oh Doxy- that is HILARIOUS!!!

I was going to come over here and suggest Whoopie Goldberg as The Samaritan woman at the well. Similar in some ways!

Woman at the Well - Yo! Fool! Which part of you are not supposed to be talking to me are you not understanding?

My pastor was telling me (after I had him look at my post, which he had a hand in inspiring and after I told him about your post as well) that he once did casting for Zacchaeus' story as part of faith formation with teenagers in the 80's.

They cast Mr. T as Jesus!!

Excellent scenes, both of you! I think this Jesus movie will be a first in that the women will not seem so much cast in that "meek, ladylike" bend that so many of the Jesus movies grab onto...
