Thomas C. Mountain's "A White Jesus During Black History Month?" goes in the "but of course" file, but it did remind me of something I haven't seen addressed regarding Mel Gibson's "Jeebusheart".

Mel has made a big deal about being true to the Bible, going as far as filming the movie in two dead languages. He's full of shit. Why didn't he film it in Israelistine? Why didn't he use actors who look at least a little bit like the folks who were involved? He could have gotten Christian actors from Lebanon, Israel, Syria, Palestine and Jordan to play the locals, and actors from the same area (and perhaps Greece and Cyprus) to play the Roman soldiers. Pilate could have been an Italian.

Oh well. Typical Hollywood! (heh)
