Jesus (JenCarlos Canela) in The Passion
Canela took on the role for the musical television special and sang live the entire time. The Cubano took the world by storm with this role because it was something so different compared to everything he has done. "Every other actor is singing more in the style that they would in real life but I had to sing the songs a million times to catch the things that I would normally do as a singer," the singer/actor told People. "That was a huge challenge."
Jesus Christ (Diogo Morgado) in The Bible
Is there such as a thing as too hot for Hollywood? Apparently, when it comes to playing JC there is. The Portuguese actor/model’s good looks have even got comedian/TV host, Stephen Colbert, saying, “We need a Jesus who suffers like us—with a spare tire, receding hairline and who only came back on Easter because he heard there was chocolate." Hilarious!
Jesus Shuttlesworth (Ray Allen) in He Got Game
Jesus Shuttlesworth will forever be part of the basketball lexicon. Portrayed by real life NBA star, Ray Allen, Shuttlesworth even complains to his father (Denzel Washington) about his weighty name. Still, Jesus > than any other biblical name.
Jesus Christ (Jeremy Sisto) in Jesus
The Clueless star gave the Son of God a laid back California vibe. It seemed like he was always two seconds away from saying, “lets catch a wave before supper.”
Jesus Flores (L.A. Dodgers)
Flores isn’t the best active Latino baseball player but he sure is a hot guy named Jesus. As a catcher for the Washington Nationals and now the L.A. Dodgers, the Venezuelan athlete squats for a living—so just imagine those tree trunk thighs.
Jesus Christ (Christian Bale) in Mary, Mother of Jesus
Yes, even Batman himself portrayed Jesus of Nazareth before he put on the cape. In this 1999 made for TV movie, Bale gazes aimlessly, frowns, and gazes some more. Still, he is the hottest actor to jump from biblical characters to superheroes.
Jesus Navas (Sevilla FC)
At age 24, Navas was part of the Spanish national soccer team that won the World Cup. Yet, all the futbol accolades in the world mean nothing compared to his cat-like eyes and six-pack abs.
Jesus Christ (Jim Caviezel) in The Passion of the Christ
Oh, the humanity. The whipping scene is too much to stomach but outside of those 75 minutes (we kid) of torture, Caviezel is God-made beefcake.
Jesus Montero (Seattle Mariners)
Once projected as the future catcher of the prestigious New York Yankees, Montero didn’t quite live up to expectations. We don’t care if he had one hit with the Yanks because he’s a homerun in our book.
Jesus Velasquez (Kevin Alejandro) in True Blood
As witch doctor Jesus Velasquez in the HBO vampire series, Alejandro hypnotized us with his hazel eyes. No need for love spells here—we’re completely smitten.
Jesus (Cisco Reyes) in Next Day Air
We’ll be the first to admit, we never heard of Reyes until Next Day Air. Yet, once we set our eyes on him…JESUS!
