According to MTV Movies Blog, despite John Turturro’s years of insistence that Big Lebowski filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen should pen a spin-off movie for his memorable Jesus character, the brothers don’t see it happening anytime soon. “That movie has more of an enduring fascination for other people than it does for us,” Joel said as he metaphorically stuck a “piece” up loyal Jesus fans’ collective ass and pulled the f–ing trigger ’til it goes…”click.” So, somewhat sad news, but just FYI: a quick perusal of YouTube reveals plenty of DIY versions of “The Big Lebowski Jesus scene” — so many that they’d probably equal a full-length (horrible) film if cobbled together. I also enjoyed the following unofficial music video for Muse’s “Hysteria.”
Just for fun, we want to know if you’d be more likely to watch a Jesus movie than SNL‘s in-production feature film based on the MacGruber sketches. Or! Maybe Hollywood should just combine the two and provide us with a sure-to-be-religious experience: Will Forte Finds Jesus.
