“Jesus Revolution,” the faith-based film about the great spiritual revival of the 1970s, has cast actor, author and producer Jim Gaffigan and actor Joel Courtney for its leading roles.
Starring Courtney (Super 8) as young Greg Laurie and Gaffigan as Greg’s mentor Pastor Chuck Smith, Jesus Revolution follows the journey of Laurie, a “lost boy” from California who is swept into the Jesus Movement and is transformed from rebel to believer.
“God is in the habit of doing the unexpected and using the seemingly unprepared. Like so many California teens in the early 70s, I fit the description,” Laurie said. “We were all looking for love and belonging, but we were looking in all the wrong places, until the Jesus Movement.”
