Denzel Is America’s Top Choice to Play Jesus

Denzel Washington

In the December issue of Vanity Fair magazine, there's a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll (subtitled Lust For Life), which asks readers a series of random questions such as which holiday movie is most overplayed on TV ("A Christmas Story" was #1), do you have a public library card (55% said they do), what is Kwanzaa (60% got it right), and finally, if you were directing a new film version of the New Testament, which actor would you cast to play Jesus?

Surprisingly, in response to that last question about what actor you'd cast to play Jesus, the majority vote, 21%, chose Denzel Washington, beating out Daniel Day-Lewis (14%), Al Pacino (13%), Rya Gosling (11%), Woody Allen (10%), Philip Seymour Hoffman (3%), and finally, none of them (15%).

Woody Allen, though?
