The actor that played Jesus in the recent ‘Son of God’ epic will soon take on a more sinister role as Satan.
The Christian Post reports:
Diogo Morgado, the actor who plays Jesus in the recently-released “Son of God” movie, will reportedly play a more devilish character in his upcoming CW television series, “The Messengers.”
Sources close to the new series’ production team have told multiple media outlets that Morgado will be playing a more sinister character in the upcoming series. TMZ claims the Brazilian-born actor was “cast as the devil” in the new show, while The Daily Mail reports Morgado will play “a character from hell.”
As The Hollywood Reporter described last week, Morgado will reportedly play the role of “The Man,” a mysterious character who appears on earth as a selected group of humans scramble to save the world from an impending apocalypse. Morgado’s character will first appear in the new sci-fi drama as “naked and burned in the desert, [setting] out on a mission to provide some answers about the strange events.”
TMZ also reports that the CW network is keeping details of Morgado’s new role top secret, as reportedly those behind the recently-released “Son of God” movie fear news of Morgado’s new devilish role will stir outrage among Christian moviegoers and cause ticket sales to plummet.
