Kanye West to Play Apostle Paul in Upcoming Bible-Based Film

Following the trend of movies based on the Bible, such as “Noah” and the upcoming “Gods of Egypt”, Paramount Pictures recently revealed that they have hired Kanye West to play the apostle Paul in a new Bible-based film. The film, titled “The Apostles” is based on the Bible book of Acts and will showcase the life of the apostle Paul as he tries to spread the Gospel throughout the Middle East in the wake of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

“This will be my first major performance in film,” said Kanye in a recent interview. “I feel like I can relate to the apostle Paul because he had a divine revelation that inspired him to spread his message. I feel the same way. With everything, my music, my fashion, I feel like I’ve been divinely inspired to share my message through my art. So that’s why, when the opportunity arose for me to play this part, I felt like I had to do it. I’m really excited about this movie.”

Kanye West, known for his controversial antics, critically acclaimed albums, and marriage to Kim Kardashian, will also be producing the soundtrack for the film. In an interview with Brad Grey, the C.E.O. of Paramount Pictures, he said “We really think Kanye West can bring the energy necessary to play such a powerful role. We also highly anticipate his musical contributions to the film. This is the first time that I know of where a movie based on the Bible will feature a hip-hop soundtrack. We really think that this is an effective way to reach the youth, repackaging time-honored and beloved Bible stories with a fresh urban flair.”

Sources say that Kim Kardashian was also approached for a role in the film. Her part is unknown, but she has shown her acting chops before, notably in the 2013 film “Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confession of A Marriage Counselor”.

    She’s insane. She also seems to want to remove Assad and spend a lot of time in war. Idk.

    He also wants to ask people what religion they are before being allowed into this country. This seems like dangerous precedent.

    Yes, unless you think the only things that matter are Wall Street and foreign policy. Which isn’t uncommon for white dudes, I suppose.

    Wondering if reviewers will open with line: SAUL…why are you persecuting me….

  • Marcel Zachary

    I’m having mix thoughts about this. But i’m glad they’re finally having black stars play Bible characters besides thugs and gangsters but Kanye now we know we are in the last days.I think Paramount should be careful and not exploit the Scriptures like what they did to Noah they hired a athiest to make it are y’all crazy why not a deist and now this

    Kim Kardashian can play Mary Magdalene? They are kidding right?

  • Heretical Cynic

    And where do you base it on that I’m an idiot? Because I said that there is a big chance the Paul has an olive complexion, like most people in the Levant or Middle East? Well, and by giving your self up votes, says more about, who the idiot is.

      Blah, Blah,Blah. Nothin to hide Mr homo,hierchy

      • Heretical Cynic

        You’re just a sad excuse for a human being. Not really sharpest knife in the drawer. And just acting like a tough guy behind the keyboard.

    The Real Jehovah and Jesus are about to show that fool the error of his ways. His whole deal with the devil was to taunt God and his son thinking that being an idiot was going to provoke God. He is a sick pathetic fool that I am eagerly awaiting God to humble. These fools think that they are protected by satan, but God isn’t going to react to inferior energy and someone that is probably already burning in the lake of fire. He will return to that burning car that he should’ve died in.

  • Heretical Cynic

    Rektu has a point, Since Paul, formerly known as Saul, was born in Tarsus, which is in present day Turkey, so he was not really Caucasian, but would have an olive complexion, and not a west African.

  • Apostle Paul

    West does these things to purposely raise the throttle of tempers. When they say “very excited… hip-hop music for a Bible…” they’re taking the piss.

  • Nat Martin

    lol I’m not offended because he’s black, I’m offended because he’s Kanye.

      Thank you.

    That’s disappointing. Kanye West is a musical genius, and it just goes to show that even people who are really smart (or at least really smart in one area) can be just as brainwashed and misinformed as a person who comes from nothing and has no education. I always knew that Kanye and Kim were quite religious, or at least held a strong belief in the Christian god. But I didn’t think either one of them would take it this far. I think Kanye is smart enough to actually let go of the belief, if he took the time to research the Abrahamic religions and not be scared of his god’s wrath. I think he could break free. Kim, I think she is nice but she doesn’t strike me as an intellectual, and I don’t think she could ever accept god not being real – especially since her dad is gone and he was religious too. She doesn’t seem to follow Christianity too close though. Here’s to hoping that little Nori will be a strong atheist.

    As far as the movie goes, I think it will be very interesting. I wonder if Kanye can act. I get the impression that he can, I have seen him in a couple commercials and things.

    Interestingly, I think all these god movies are just a part of the last dying screams of religion. I know we’re about a good 100 or 200 years out from destroying it in general, but every day religion loses more and more people, as education gets more widespread and people get tired of the abuse from religion. I think all of this fighting back from the fundamentalists is a part of the death of religion.

  • jaani

    someone took the part of Jesus?!

  • Rektu

    What!? A Black man playing the part of Paul!?
    Come on, everyone knows that he and pretty much everyone else mentioned in the bible were white, just like Jesus!

    • jaani

      Go away you race-troll and peddle your b-s somewhere else.

    • Sunshine

      I get it that you are just trying to be provocative to make a point (or maybe racist trolling, I can’t tell really), but don’t you know that musical / movie Jesus Christ Superstar? Judas was black in the movie version and my goodness, he was so great as the role that I can’t picture anyone else playing Judas in any other capacity now. Anyone else remember? It was Carl Anderson. He was SUCH an amazing talent.

    • antwoan frazier

      Um excuse me Rektu Jesus was not white did you go to school or paid attention in history class.. during the time Jesus and the apostles walked the earth white people were in EUROPE… so i guess pharoe and them from egypt in AFRICA were white too? dont be ignorant man..

    • Billy Minniefield

      The bible doesnt mention any of them by color. If you ever read it, you wouldnt be looking like a fool in your response.
