World Youth Day looking for actor to play Jesus
An open casting call to find Australia's Jim Caviezel is taking place next month, in a bid to find actors to play roles that include Mary and Pontius Pilate.
The actors will be performing a pivotal portrayal at World Youth Day next July.
Many other roles including Pontius Pilate, Simon of Cyrene, the 12 Apostles, Roman Soldiers, religious authorities as well as a crew of extras will also need filling.
The Stations of the Cross will be telecast live to the world on Friday 18 July 2008 from major Sydney CBD locations.
Organisers advise that acting experience is not necessary.
