Tyler Perry’s ‘Passion’ Casts Hispanic Actor to Play Jesus
Prayer and personal Bible study are highly crucial for growing our trust in Jesus and our connection with Him. Our direct link to the Savior we’re waiting for comes via Bible study and prayer, which are both prompted by the Holy Spirit. Getting ready for His imminent return is the most effective method of preparing. Being on this path alongside other believers is a critical component of the whole experience of faith. There is no doubt that the world is in disarray. Unrest on the political and social fronts is on the horizon.
Around the world, people’s physical and mental health are deteriorating.
This world is not what God intended, but Jesus’ coming will bring this world as we know it to an end.
Hope in Christ’s return inspired the beginning of the Advent movement.

It follows Jesus of Nazareth as he rules over the Last Supper, is betrayed by Judas, is taken on trial by Pontius Pilate and condemned, before being killed and resurrected. The Passion takes place in the present day and is directed by Mel Gibson. Tyler Perry serves as the host and narrator of the show. Lisa Loveday is the author of this piece.
- Trivia The concept for this project originated in the Netherlands, where it has been broadcast on a yearly basis since 2011.
2 out of 10Catastrophic It was a ludicrous program on the Fox network last night called “The Passion,” which was advertised as a depiction of Jesus’ life — or at least the last week or so of it — but ended up being a presentation that can only be described as “God-awful.” The concert kicked off at a large outdoor stadium in New Orleans, where the entire event took place, and the major deal was that it was being played live on the stage, to to the delight of the audience.
Although there were various gimmicks, one of them was that the main stadium would serve as the location for the orchestra, choir, and Trisha Yearwood (who played Mary), among other things.
They were seen in various urban settings on their way to the main venue; they arrived in town for Palm Sunday on a In other news, a giant white cross was being carried to the main site by a group of volunteers, who were holding it like a coffin instead of dragging it as the traditional (and incorrect) depictions of the Crucifixion have depicted it (the real way a crucifixion was done was the victim carried the top bar of the cross and then it was attached to a permanent stake in the ground — Franco Zeffirelli, in his 1970’s TV-movie “Je What’s more, the script was written by writer/director Peter Barsocchini and just five of the main characters — Jesus (Jencarlos Canela), Peter (Prince Royce), Judas (Chris Daughtry), Pilate (Seal), and Mary (Trisha Yearwood) — had prominent parts.
As Anna Russell would have put it, Christ’s other ten apostles became “a homogeneous chorus — as in milk,” basically relegated to following him about and so undifferentiated in Barsocchini’s screenplay that they aren’t even recognized by name on the show’s IMDb.com page — only as “Disciple.” Worse still was the naive decision to follow Baz Luhrmann’s lead in the 2001 film “Moulin Rouge!” and, instead of commissioning a new score (or using an existing pop-rock setting of the Passion Play like Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Jesus Christ Superstar” or Stephen Schwartz’s “Godspell,” for example), to shoehorn in existing pop-rock songs that didn’t even begin to fit into the storyline.
It was Tyler “Madea” Perry, who hosted the show, and he was personable, but he was forced to recite Barsocchini’s awful faith-based dialogue, which was something that would have been called “The Evangelist” in Johann Sebastian Bach’s time.
One saving (to use a word with religious connotations!) grace of this production was Trisha Yearwood, who isn’t exactly one of the most intensely emotional singers of all time but whose cool professionalism shone above the rest of the cast despite the ridiculous choices of songs for her to sing (she was supposed to be mourning the impending crucifixion of her son, and the song they gave her to do that with was the old Rodgers and Hammerstein masterpiece of bathos and I thought the show’s silliest moments were the duet between Jesus and Judas when Jesus learns that Judas has betrayed him (and before he’s arrested by helmeted riot police and appears in an orange prison jumpsuit — I guess orange was the new Jewish on this show) and the later duet between Jesus and Pilate (to quote another Anna Russell line, “I’m not making this up, you know!”) to Tina Turner’s big song from “Mad Max: (If they were going to use that song, couldn’t they have dragged Tina out of retirement and cast her as Mary Magdalene?) With the exception of Yearwood, “The Passion” was an outrageously foolish musical with a score of such stupefying simplicity that it made Andrew Lloyd Webber look like Bach in contrast, and weak interpretations of these dreadful songs by everyone in the cast save Yearwood (I used to really like Seal, but here he sank to the level of his duet partner).
“Oh, no, they didn’t make Judas black,” my mother exclaimed as she and I were watching the trailer for the film “Jesus Christ Superstar,” and she remarked, “Oh, no, they didn’t make Judas black” — at least this time, Judas was white and Pilate was black!
It also didn’t help that they were both such mediocre performers that they became oppressive screen presences, despite the fact that they are both quite attractive young men who should have been entertaining at the very least to look at, if not to hear!
And as for Peter Barsocchini, please forgive him, Lord, for he has no idea what he is doing!

The Passion, a two-hour live musical chronicling the last days of Jesus Christ’s earthly life, will debut on Fox on Sunday, March 20 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. Latin actor/singerJencarlos Canelawill takes the starring part in a performance that was recorded live on the streets of New Orleans and was loaded with modern pop classics, and he is surrounded by music artists such as Seal, Chris Daughtry, and Trisha Yearwood. The Passionhas already proven to be a huge hit in Holland, where it has maintained consistently high ratings for five years in a row, and industry experts predict that it will do even better in the United States.
Canela, on the other hand, may not be a household name, but he isn’t a stranger to the limelight: In addition to his recent tour in support of his 2014 album, Jen, released by Universal Music Latin, the Miami native is currently starring with Eva Longoria on NBC’sTelenovela, a parody of the same Spanish-language soap operas that Canela, 27, began his career in the first place.
Read the whole interview here.
View the most recent videos, charts, and news. On Palm Sunday, you’ll be performing as Jesus Christ in a live musical – but don’t feel any pressure! How did you come to be cast in the role? A link to the trailer was emailed to me by my co-manager, who stated that “we had to do this.” I was very affected. I recall lying down in front of the television, turning through the stations, and it was all about bombs and other news stories that I was used to hearing about. When I received the link, I took it as a message from above.
- When I phoned my co-manager, he told me, “They want you to play Jesus.” I was shocked.
- Jencarlos Canela and Prince Royce star in the drama “The Passion.” Chris Daughtry on the Fox Biblical Musical’s decision to replace prayers with pop hits.
- No, but I believe that religion has received a negative reputation among my age as a result of human mistake.
- It’s about love, unity, acceptance, forgiving, facing your fears, and being willing to do whatever it takes to overcome them in order to be the greatest person you can be for the rest of your life.
- Despite the fact that I am not one to preach, when I viewed the trailer, I understood and associated more than ever with this incredible narrative that is woven into the fabric of our lives.
- The play is taking place in real time on the streets of New Orleans, and it has a large cast of hundreds of people.
- Oh my goodness, I can’t wait.
Everyone on the cast, I believe, is primarily a singer or a musician, so we are accustomed to the live element.
We traveled to Toronto, the United States, and Central America.
I’m ready, and I’m thrilled that Fox is putting its money where its mouth is on these sorts of projects.
Normally, while watching television, you think to yourself, “I can goof up, I have takes two, three, and four.” There will be no take two in this situation.
The Billboard Shoot with the Cast of Fox’s “The Passion” What do you believe was the deciding factor in your selection for this role?
On tour, I had a Skype session with Adam Anders, who was in the same city as me.
We were sweating because the Wi-Fi was patchy and we couldn’t go online.
He’s informing me of the magnitude of the obligation.
He also stated that it had something to do with our eye contact with him.
There are many defects in me, and I am the farthest thing from perfect you will ever meet, but my major objective each and every day is to improve myself.
That part of the tale resonated with me, and I expressed my gratitude to Adam for included it.
I revealed that the night before, it had been my parents’ anniversary, and that we had partied hard.
He coerced me into singing “Amazing Grace.” I’m not sure how everything went down, but.
What steps are you doing to prepare for the role?
He was a unique kind of human, yet he was still a person.
A revolutionary, to be sure.
He sincerely believed in the cause for which he was fighting.
He becomes really agitated.
With regards to delivering my lines, I just enabled him to travel to places in his emotional journey that the stereotypical depiction of Jesus would not go.
The Live Musical Track List for ‘The Passion: New Orleans’ Has Been Revealed If you compare it to other sets you’ve been on, how does the energy level compare?
I recall acting out the scene in which Judas betrays me and the police arrive to arrest me and take me away.
They were working on a light fixture while I had my eyes closed.
He comes up behind me to make a little adjustment and holds my arm, leans in close to my ear and whispers, “Have I told you today that I love you?” He then walks away and leaves me alone.
We’ve only known each other for two or three days, but I could tell he meant it by the way he said it.
We developed quite close as a group, this cast and crew of folks from all over the world.
What song are you most looking forward to performing?
That’s one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen.
Like hearing these songs for the first time, it’ll be like discovering something new and exciting.
It’s empowering — yet ridiculous at the same time.
And the duet with Pontius Pilate is one of my favorite songs, Tina Turner’s “We Don’t Need Another Hero,” which is also one of my favorite tunes.
I’m not sure which excites me more: the prospect of portraying Jesus or singing a duet with Seal. The Passionairs airs on Fox on Sunday, March 20 at 8 p.m. ET.
Roles of Jesus Christ, Judas Cast in Tyler Perry’s ‘The Passion Live’

The names of the performers who will represent Jesus Christ and Judas in the forthcoming live performance of Fox’s “The Passion” on Palm Sunday have been released in their official capacities. Jencarlos Canela, a singer-songwriter and theatrical actor who had his stage debut in the 2008 musical “Miami Libre” and presently appears on the NBC primetime show “Telenovela,” will portray Jesus.
While he has made appearances on “CSI: NY,” the soon-to-be Judas is arguably most remembered for his performance on season five of “American Idol,” when he finished fourth in the competition.
Richard Bracco, executive vice president of programming and development for Dick Clark Productions, said: “This Palm Sunday television event is a modern-day production of the most famous story of all time, full of universal themes, which we hope will provide a unifying experience, bringing the sacred and secular together.” Adam Anders, a music producer who has worked on shows such as “Glee” and “Rock of Ages,” has claimed that spectators will watch the narrative of Jesus being conveyed in a way that has never been seen before on television.
According to Anders in a statement to The Christian Post, “‘The Passion’ is one of the most fascinating and riveting projects that I have ever been engaged with.” “Bringing the greatest narrative ever told to life via music in a way that has never been heard before is something I am really excited about.
- “I’m pleased to be a part of The PassionLive, which will air LIVE on @FOXTV on March 20th.
- After joining the cast as the disciple Peter, the “Corazón Sin Cara” singer Prince Royce expressed his support for Yearwood’s beliefs as well.
- ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ will be narrated and hosted by film mogul Tyler Perry, who will also serve as the show’s presenter.
- The live musical performance, which is intended to incorporate members of the local New Orleans audience in the carrying of a 20-foot cross, will take place at a number of historic places across the city, including the French Quarter.
When it comes to leading the actors and viewers through the streets of New Orleans, he is the ideal host. He is also the right host for this contemporary retelling of a timeless narrative.”
Jesus sang Katy Perry from a rooftop in Fox’s live musical ‘The Passion’
Fox’s two-hour “live musical event,” which broadcast Sunday night, had the feel of a service in an international megachurch, according to some. In Tyler Perry’s birthplace of New Orleans, a procession of 1,000 people carried a lighted cross through the streets, telling the tale of Jesus’ last days on Earth. At the conclusion of the concert, Jesus (played by actor and pop singer Jencarlos Canela) sang Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally” from the top of a skyscraper, with the Westin sign inscribed on the building below him.
One of “The Passion” executive producers, Adam Anders, formerly worked as the music supervisor on the Fox television program “Glee,” which helped push the show’s popularity on Billboard’s charts.
With a crooning rendition of Hoobastank’s “The Reason,” Latin music sensation Prince Royce took on the role of Peter and admitted that he was “not the ideal puuuursaahn.” Adapted on a Dutch television series, Fox’s retelling of the Passion tale had Jesus lecturing to his disciples in a New Orleans café and ordering Last Supper meals (fish and loaves of bread, of course) from a food truck operated by “Top Chef” Carla Hall, among other things.
In fact, Jesus only went to a food truck and then started singing the Creed.

The story’s fidelity to its source material (namely, the Bible) split some viewers; nonetheless, the sight of Jesus and Christianity on their television screens, not to mention the cross lighting along Bourbon street, affected many others.
This is just stunning March 21, 2016 — Kimberly (@pinkangel77) of ThePassionLive Trisha Yearwood played the part of Jesus’ mother Mary with less of a narrative focus, but she pleased a live (and virtual) audience with renditions of songs such as Whitney Houston’s “My Love is Your Love,” Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up,” and Lifehouse’s “Broken.” “When Love Takes Over” by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland served as the show’s opening number, while gospel singer Yolanda Adams capped it with an intense and passionate version of “When the Saints Go Marching In,” accompanied by the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
Perry has previously spoken on the significance of the show’s filming in New Orleans in the weeks leading up to the premiere of “The Passion.” His words to The Times-Picayune were as follows: “Listen, New Orleans really rose again from a watery tomb.” He said, “What better location to be our Jerusalem than a place that raised itself?” People carrying the cross throughout the city, rather than those watching at home, were most likely to grasp the underlying meaning of the event.
- Percy offered a few hints to reporter Nischelle Turner, who conducted live interviews with audience members in between segues that were presumably required from a technical sense but felt out of place in relation to other aspects of the production.
- Very well done.
- The crucifixion was recounted in pretty vivid detail, despite the fact that it was absolutely free of the violence witnessed in other versions of the story.
- “I’m not going to be frightened to say the name Jesus,” Melissa Joan Hart declares in the teaser for the film.
It wasn’t as successful as NBC’s ” The Wiz Live!” or Fox’s recent win ” Grease: Live,” but it wasn’t attempting to be that successful. In the end, “The Passion” largely served as a sermon to the choir, but it did elicit some discussion.

It’s just incredible ThePassionLive— Kimberly (@pinkangel77) on March 21, 2016 — Trisha Yearwood played the part of Jesus’ mother Mary with less of a narrative focus, but she wowed the live (and internet) audience with renditions of songs such as Whitney Houston’s “My Love is Your Love,” Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up,” and Lifehouse’s “Broken.” “When Love Takes Over” by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland served as the show’s opening number, while gospel singer Yolanda Adams capped it with an exciting and passionate version of “When the Saints Go Marching In,” backed by the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

- You did an excellent job!
- The 21st of March, 2016, is a Saturday.
- Perry’s rendition of the crucifixion was extremely explicit, despite the fact that it avoided the brutality shown in other versions.
Apparently, Fox was especially meticulous about the advertisement that was aired during the broadcast, in order to avoid this: There were many spots for Jennifer Garner’s upcoming film “Miracles from Heaven,” as well as for the Christian thriller “God’s Not Dead 2,” which is about a teacher who becomes the center of a highly-publicized court fight after putting Jesus’s teachings into a lesson plan.
It is shown in the teaser that Melissa Joan Hart is not scared to call out the name Jesus.
This was not “The Wiz Live!” or ” Grease: Live!” or any other recent hit from NBC or Fox, but it wasn’t attempting to be one of those things either. Although “The Passion” primarily ended up preaching to the choir, it did manage to get people to speak about it.

These works, ranging from “Cannibal!” to “Springtime for Hitler,” are all completely unsuited for the small-screen medium. The Fox broadcast of “Grease: Live” on Sunday night was a huge success, and it served as more proof that live musical events can help networks significantly raise their same-day ratings (and generate social-media buzz). However, programmers should be aware that not every musical is suitable for live television broadcast. Continue reading for 11 catastrophic ideas for small-screen adaptations of big-budget films.
The Passion Live: Welcome Back To Jesus Idol
In New Orleans, where the motto is “live, raw, and true passion,” it’s been a long, exhausting night. “The Passion Live,” narrated by Tyler Perry on Fox, is a live reenactment of the Biblical tale about Jesus’ betrayal by Judas, his horrific crucifixion, and his resurrection that takes place in the present day. Season 1 of Jesus Christ’s Funhouse of Horrors has a large number of people singing along to the songs as though they are competing for the big prize of the show. However, due to the fact that there can only be one winner, please allow me to assume the position of one of the competition’s judges.
I guarantee that I will not refer to anyone as “pitchy.” THE PEOPLE OF NEW ORLEANS FINISHED IN LAST PLACE What has New Orleans been through that its inhabitants should be conscripted to carry a gigantic, luminous, white cross across the city is beyond comprehension.
Some people spoke live on the show about how carrying the cross had been very emotional for them, and perhaps it was actually healing.

- What did Peter ever do to earn this treatment?
- TRISHA YEARWOOD TRISHA YEARWOOD TRISHA YEARWOOD TRISHA YEARWOOD Although the judges were impressed with your diamond earrings and expensive outfit throughout the evening, they were concerned that your portrayal of Mary, mother of God, fell short of what they were hoping to see.
- DAUGHTRY Did you compete on American Idol and perform the song “Bring Me to Life”?
- Even if you were tossed out during Elvis Presley Week, the beautiful vocals of Evanescence would not have been able to spare you from your fate.
- Oh, yes – you performed “Bring Me to Life” on a bridge in your role as Judas, and that was quite great, I thought.
- JENCARLOS CANELA is a Mexican actor and director.
- Nonetheless, it’s gratifying to demonstrate your variety by portraying Jesus as someone who wanders around New Orleans in clothes from the Gap’s autumn collection.
You should have sang Katy Perry’s song “Unconditionally,” because all of her songs are loosely about Jesus, and you should have done so.
SEAL This depiction of Pontius Pilate is perplexing – are you a businessperson, or not?
Why would you be in a position to detain and imprison Jesus?
The implication is that the police would murder someone similar to Jesus in current times, but aren’t we meant to respect and admire the police officers?
If you understand what they’re saying, this isn’t a problem between Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.
Seal, it’s almost as if you’re a full-time professional vocalist.
If you were under the impression that this entire evening was dedicated to Jesus, you were mistaken.
Is it necessary to see the crucifixion when Tyler can explain it in grindhouse detail?
Tyler explains everything to the spectator, including every action sequence and every character reason.
Even Jesus, I believe, would choose to listen to “Drip Drop” on Empire than than attend church. In order to better appropriately portray Tyler Perry’s involvement in the production, this post has been changed to indicate that he narrated the program but did not play a role in its creation.
The Passion review – Jesus Christ turns superstar in live broadcast
In New Orleans, where the theme is “live, raw, and true emotion,” it’s been a long night of dancing and drinking. “The Passion Live,” narrated by Tyler Perry on Fox, is a live reenactment of the Biblical tale about Jesus’ betrayal by Judas, his horrific execution, and his resurrection that takes place in real time. Season 1 of Jesus Christ’s Funhouse of Horrors has a large number of individuals singing as though they are competing for the grand prize. Permit me, however, to assume the position of the singing competition’s judges, because there can only be a single winner.
NEW ORLEANS RESIDENTS FINISHED IN LAST PLACE What has New Orleans been through that its inhabitants should be conscripted to carry a massive, shining, white cross across the city is beyond me.
However, the forced comparison of Jesus’s resurrection to post-Katrina New Orleans (with a surprising absence of black people, the ones who were actually affected by Katrina — Tyler Perry must want white fans now) was as clumsy as a True Bloodmetaphor about vampires equaling homosexuality.
Prince Charles (Prince) of Wales (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales) (Prince of Wales, Prince of Wales, Given that Judas was the one who betrayed Jesus, rather than Peter, what was he doing up there on live television in 2016 singing Hoobastank’s “The Reason”?
Peter hasn’t done anything to earn this treatment.
The name Trisha Yearwood comes from the word “yearwood,” which means “year” in English.
But thank you for injecting some beige, milquetoast no-energy into Whitney Houston’s “My Love Is Your Love,” because while most people like butchering Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You,” why should one song have all of the fun?
You may have made it to the finals and defeated Taylor Hicks, according to the judges if you had.
We were at the wrong place at the wrong time, though.
It has absolutely nothing to do with betraying Christ, but if songs about love are vague enough to pass for music about Jesus forSister Act, then damnit, they’ll work forThe Passion Live, as well!
The fact that you can portray Jesus as someone who travels around New Orleans in the Gap’s fall collection is a good way to demonstrate your versatility.
You should have sung Katy Perry’s song “Unconditionally,” because all of her songs are vaguely about Jesus, and you should have done that instead.
SEAL If you’re a businessperson, you might find this depiction of Pontius Pilate confusing.
So, what puts you in a position to detain Jesus?
However, aren’t we supposed to respect and admire the police?
We enjoyed your duet with Jesus, “We Don’t Need Another Hero,” but the judges don’t think you two are going to be releasing a duet album any time soon.
Your performance of Tears for Fears’ “Mad World” was, on the other hand, incredibly insightful and thought-provoking.
Tyler Perry is the second-place finisher in the race for the championship.
Tyler Perry was the focus of the evening, and he had a fantastic time as a result of the attention being drawn to him.
Is it really necessary to witness the resurrection when Tyler can simply tell you what occurred?
Despite his modest stature, he was the true highlight of the show.
JESUS WAS THE WINNER.
Even Jesus, I believe, would prefer to watch “Drip Drop” on Empire rather than attend church. In order to more accurately reflect Tyler Perry’s involvement in the production, this post has been updated to reflect that he narrated the show but did not play a role in its conception.
