Holy crap: A supercut of white dudes playing Jesus

Happy Easter! Here’s a supercut of historically inaccurate, incredibly hunky white guys cast in the role of Jesus in films and on TV shows. As much as anthropologists, theologians, and any other folks might try to explain that Jesus wasn’t European, it seems Hollywood can’t get enough of that Anglo-Saxon Christ.

Hallelujah! Chris Sarandon? Praise him! Christian Bale? In the name of the lord! Willem Dafoe? Take the wheel! Pull out your Wonder Bread and your Miracle Whip and see the white ‘light of the world’ in all His glory!
