Beautiful Blasphemy

1. James Caviezel
Playing Jesus Christ
The Passion of the Christ



Blasphemy?

Unintentially perhaps. The film was meant to show the horrors that the real Jesus Christ endure in his last few days of life. However, two hours of a man being beaten and whipped and stabbed and crucified can desensitize anyone. You're practically begging for a death at teh end of this one.

2. Morgan Freeman
Playing God...twice!
Bruce Almighty
Evan Almighty



Blasphemy?

Well, they've created a God that gives a bitter over-privileged idiot the power to part his soup and make his wives boobs bigger in America while wars rage on elsewhere. Then he appears to another overprivileged suburbian and tells him to make an ark because a water tower is going to break in his home town...while the wars still rage one elsewhere. There's blasphemy in there somewhere...but Morgan Freeman makes it oh so entertaining!

3. Alexander Siddig
Playing the angel Gabriel
The Nativity Story

Blasphemy?

Not really. He appears on a lonely road to tell the Virgin Mary that she's pregnant. He appears in the middle of the night to Joseph to tell him that Mary's not a nutcase. Despite the inherent creepy factor, that's pretty much sticking to the Bible story.

Average listal rating (1285 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
4. Liam Neeson
Playing Zeus
Clash of the Titans



Blasphemy?

Oh there was plenty of it in the movie, (Perseus and Io: can you say incest?) but as I am not a practicing polytheist (or monotheist, now that I think about it) I can't quite quote from the book of all-things-Zeus. According to history, the three brothers are in constant disagreement, so perhaps the only blasphemy here was calling them Titans.

5. John Travolta
Playing an angel
Michael



Blasphemy?

A fat, lazy, booze drinking, cigar smoking angel. Perhaps the greatest blasphemy here is allowing John Travolta to play any role at all.

6. Will Ferrell
Playing Jesus Christ
Superstar



Blasphemy
I refuse to see this film, but Will Ferrel tends to thrive off of things like blasphemy, and unlike others, who manage to make it entertaining...he just makes it awkward and unappealing.

Average listal rating (53 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
7. Andre Braugher
Playing the angel Cassiel
City of Angels



Blasphemy?

I'm not well versed enough in the Bible to tell you if there really was an angel named Cassiel, but it appears later on the list as well. These are angels that walk around observing people, reading their thoughts, harvesting souls, and watching us in our most compromising positions. Reapers harvest souls and Peeping Toms watch us in our private moments. I'm gonna say there's some blasphemy there, but it's all a matter of perspective.

Average listal rating (588 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating
8. Alanis Morissette
Playing God
Dogma



Blasphemy?

God comes down to Earth as a 90's chick rocker with a voice so terribly potent that it would blow us to pieces if we heard it. Sounds like the normal Alanis to me. Blasphemy points for not giving her any cool powers.

Average listal rating (1214 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
9. Willem Dafoe
Playing Jesus Christ
The Last Temptation of Christ



Blasphemy?

Actually, the blasphemy in this one would have been the amount of entertainment that I would have derived from watching all the bible thumpers outdie the movie theatre protesting this one when it came out. All this, of course, assuming I had been alive on it's release date. A+ in blasphemy points for making Jesus have sex...even if it was only in his head.

10. Christopher Walken
Playing the angel Gabriel
The Prophecy 1,2, and 3



Blasphemy?

The angel Gabriel, whose pretty much been the messenger boy of God throughout Biblical history, finally loses faith and wages war, preventing any soul from getting in to Heaven. He loses...but don't worry. He follows it up with two lackluster sequels!

11. Denzel Washington
Playing and angel
The Preacher's Wife



Blasphemy?

I'm thinking that when angels are sent down to Earth to help people, they are not supposed to fall for the faithful wife of a preacher...or actively persue her.

12. Kevin McKidd
Playing Poseidon
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief



Blasphemy?
Poseidon the dead-beat dad. Survey says: blasphemy!

Average listal rating (10 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
13. Maia Morgenstern
Playing the Virgin Mary
The Passion of the Christ



Blasphemy?
Not a whole lot. She cries, she pines, she loses her son. She's probably the only one not desensitized to violence by the end of this one.

Average listal rating (480 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
14. Paul Bettany
Playing the archangel Michael
Legion



Blasphemy?
This one is all about blashphemy. God's sick and tired of the human race so he decides to end it all. Fortunately, we've got one pretty sexy angel to kick some arse and save a kid...all in defiance of God. Blasphemy points for making me think dirty thoughts about an angel.

Average listal rating (1719 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
15. Christian Bale
Playing Jesus Christ
Mary, Mother of Jesus



Blasphemy?
Yes please! Such beautiful blasphemy...right here please!

16. Misha Collins
Playing an angel
Supernatural (TV)



Blasphemy?

He's an angel gone rogue who kills other angels on a regular basis and does all that he can to stop whatever plans heaven has in store for the Winchester boys while on the brink of the Apocalypse. At one point we find him giving up and turning into one entertaining sex, drugs and booze type hippie. Amusing, but possibly blasphemy.

Average listal rating (949 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
17. Sean Bean
Playing Zeus
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief



Blasphemy?
I suppose that depends on if you've read the book. In that, Zeus is just as much of a hapless dead-beat dad as Poseidon, only he actually let his daughter die. In the movie...well, they are pretty humanized. Would that count as blasphemy?

18. Matt Damon
Playing an angel? The Norse god of chaos?
Dogma

(with Ben Affleck)


Blasphemy?
This entire movie is two hours of extremely entertaining blasphemy. This angel falls, goes on a cross country killing spree, and ends up aiding in mass murder before ripping his wings off and trying to bring about the apocalypse.

19. Jeremy Sisto
Playing Jesus Christ
Jesus



Blasphemy?
Not sure about this one. I've never seen it, but every time I look at this picture I can only think of Clueless. There's got to be some blasphemy there.

Average listal rating (86 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
20. Kevin Durand
Playing the angel Gabriel
Legion



Blasphemy?
This Gabriel is God's hired hitman with some pretty killer angel moves and bulletproof slasher wings. He dedicates himself the entire film to doing God's will (which just happens to be killing and infant) and in the end, God recants and kills him off. God is such a hypocrite!

Average listal rating (1136 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
21. Reese Witherspoon
Playing an angel
Little Nicky



Blasphemy?
Sadly, I can visualize valley girl angels without much problem, so I'm inclined to say no, but the fact that an angel had some regretful drunken frat sex with the devil kind of overrules my tolerance. OMG, that is just totally not cool!

Average listal rating (1302 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
22. Alan Rickman
Playing the Voice of God
Dogma



Blasphemy?
Yes! And of the most awesome kind! Who else would be able to pull down their pants, admit to the entire movie watching public that they do not have a penis, and still walk around outside without looking for lightning. Freaking Alan Rickman, that's who!

23. Victor Garber
Playing Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ, Superstar



Blasphemy?
They turned Jesus Christ into a pot-smoking, terrible song singing hippie mime! This is possibly the worst blashpemy ever! Peace, Love, and Movie Burning...that's what I say!

Average listal rating (1565 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
24. Nicolas Cage
Playing an angel
City of Angels



Blasphemy?
Aside from the prementioned pervert factor of watching humans in their most intimate moments, perhaps the greatest blasphemy here is that people continue to give Nicolas Cage the role of a romantic lead.

25. Melina Kanakaredes
Playing Athena
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief



Blasphemy?
Portraying Athena as a dead-beat mom is pretty bad...socially considered even worse than the dead-beat dads we have furthur up the list, but when we take into consideration the fact that Athena is supposed to be an eternal virgin...well, let's jsut go ahead and say blasphemy here too.

Average listal rating (71 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating
26. Chris Sarandon
Playing Jesus Christ
The Day Christ Died (TV)



Blasphemy?
Yet another one I haven't seen. However, when looking for a picture of this guy, the only things that seem to pop up are demons from Fright Night and the horrible Prince Humperdink from The Princess Bride. All the rest of this guys characters are headed to Hell...the Jesus? I'm not sure.

Average listal rating (31 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
27. Richard Speight Jr.
Playing the angel Gabriel
Supernatural (TV)



Blasphemy?
He starts off in the series as a trickster, addicted to sugar and women...moves up the god ladder to the status of Pagan god responsible for killing one of the main characters again...and again...and again. Then he finally makes it to the angel Gabriel, tired of looking for God and pretty much gone rogue. But who counts blasphemy when the brothers who fight it are so damn beautiful?

Average listal rating (38 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating
28. Keisha Castle-Hughes
Playing the Virgin Mary
The Nativity Story



Blasphemy?
Yeah, not really. Maybe I'm going to Hell for thinking "Let's see her ride that whale with THAT belly!" But that's just me.

Average listal rating (15 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating
29. Kenneth Colley
Playing Jesus Christ
Life of Brian



Blasphemy?
Honestly, there was probably quite a bit of it in this movie. I was too busy laughing my head off to notice.

Average listal rating (1717 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
30. Keanu Reeves
Playing Siddharta
Little Buddha



Blashphemy?
DUDE! Being one of the most awesome figures in the Buddhist religion was killer! I cannot deny that he was pretty shirtless all the time and wearing more makeup than I will in a month, but I'm pretty sure that Buddhists everywhere agree: Bill and Ted's Excellent Trip to Nirvana is not what they had in mind for Siddharta's life story.

31. Ben Affleck
Playing an angel
Dogma



Blasphemy?
I'll admit, he had me convinced after his hour and a half worth of speeches on why the human race wasn't worth saving. The flying, raging, killing spree at the end was just pure blasphemous entertainment!

Average listal rating (67 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
32. Matt Stone
Playing Jesus Christ
South Park (TV)



Blasphemy?

Of course not! Nothing on south Park can ever be considered blasphemy. It's just a half an hour of whole hearted family fun that would never think to delve into the realm of controversial!

Average listal rating (5 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
33. Lawrence Olivier
Playing Zeus
Clash of the Titans



Blasphemy?

Ha! Zeus plays with dolls! I knew it all along! I'd like to call it blasphemy just for the complete campiness of this movie...and also for spawning such a terrible remake!!

Average listal rating (23 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
34. George Burns
Playing God
Oh God!
Oh God! You Devil!



Blasphemy?

God smoking cigars, riding motorcycles, and delivering corny one-liners that were only funny a century ago, if they were actually ever funny at all...and all this in the form of a man that is so old, wrinkled, and decrepid that it takes him half the movie just to get off the hog? Well, if it wasn't blasphemy before, my horribly pessimistic description just made it so.

Average listal rating (610 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
35. Tilda Swinton
Playing the angel Gabriel
Constantine



Blasphemy?
Tilda Swenson is one of the last people alive I would ever think of to play an angel. Beauty is not exactly her...strong point? But aside from appearance, one of the most important angels in the Bible goes behind God's back and the Devil's back and makes a deal with the Devil's son to bring about an apocalypse. Of course, Keanu Reeves ends up having to save everything...again. That in itself is blasphemy.

Average listal rating (256 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
36. Max von Sydow
Playing Jesus Christ
The Greatest Story Ever Told



Blasphemy?
Another film I haven't seen. I'm going to assume that it's not to blasphemous as a movie, but once again, I just can't look at this guy without thinking of the Excorcist. That movie pretty much made a generation believe in the Devil, so there's got to be some blashpemy in there somewhere.


 

Risking a stray lightning strike from one or more deities, I'll proudly present to you a list of actors and actresses that have played deities, prophets, and angels. Arrenged in no way except where they landed in the pack. Let's put away our monotheistic mentality for a moment and just revel in all kinds of beautiful blasphemy. Don't sit too close to the screen for this one...computers funnel lightning!

Very entertaining list!! You get style points just for making it!! ;)

But let's be honest with ourselves here...the only real blasphemy going on here was allowing Will Ferrell ever begin an acting career! ;P
