Well, for the man Jesus, I have always wanted Johnny Depp. I think he would be exactly the person to radiate the goodness and gentleness of Jesus. I think he would be extraordinary. But there are other people who could do it. There’s a great English actor, Richard Armitage, that I think would be wonderful as Jesus. There are quite a few young British actors who I think could do it, but that’s just who springs to mind right now. I don’t think Johnny Depp wants to do it, but I don’t know, maybe he would. It would be wonderful to me if he did. You know who else could do it, is the same person who played him for Mel Gibson, James Caviezel. But I don’t think he would want to play Jesus again.
UK readers will know Richard Armitage (below) for his roles in “Robin Hood” and “Spooks”.

Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles has joined the reboot bandwagon. According to Bloody Disgusting:
We have confirmed this afternoon that ROBERT DOWNEY JR. is in close talks to play the vampire Lestat in Universal Pictures’ The Vampire Chronicles, a newly rebooted franchise based on Anne Rice’s popular novels.
Lestat appears as a major character in both motion picture adaptations of The Vampire Chronicles novels. In Neil Jordan’s 1994 film adaptation of Interview with the Vampire, he is portrayed by Tom Cruise. In the 2002 film adaptation of Queen of the Damned, he is played by Stuart Townsend.
We have to say that this seems like one property deserving of a reboot. The previous films were a disappointment and didn’t capture the power of the novels.
And what do we think of Downey as Lestat? Think that would work nicely.
