Meet our modern day Jesus Christ. He’s a 27-year-old Cuban pop star, and a total ladies man. On March 20th, Jencarlos Canela ("Telenovela") portrays the world’s most influential figure in FOX’s live T.V. musical, “The Passion” produced and narrated by Tyler Perry. Canela explains the pressure behind playing such an iconic figure, and why he developed a bromance with Judas played by another singer turned actor Chris Daughtry.
"The Passion" tells the story of Jesus Christ’s final hours through a series of biblical passages scored by a handful of popular contemporary songs. At a recent sit down with Canela, he tells Cinemovie that the music is mind blowing and attributes it to the genius arrangements conceptualized by executive producer Adam Anders (Glee).Add a comment
