Actors Who Have Played "Jesus".

A Listmania! list by James McDonald (Lancaster, California)
The list author says: "This list contains many movies and television movies about the life of "Jesus". Many actors have starred in a movie as "Jesus" depicting his adult life while other actors have only a small role in a film as "Jesus".
Many people prefer Max Von Sydow as "Jesus" in, THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD (1965).
The best TV-movie miniseries about "Jesus" is JESUS OF NAZARETH (1977) starring Robert Powell as "Jesus" and with an all-star cast. Dramatic, beautiful and emotional."
