Theo James To Play Catholic Priest In “The Secret Scripture”
Theo James has played a cop, a Turkish Diplomat and a mysterious trainer, but it looks like his next role may be as a Catholic Priest! Variety is reporting that the British actor is in talks for a role in “The Secret Scripture” alongside Eric Bana, Jack Reynor and Rooney Mara. Hollywood legends Jeremy Irons and Vanessa Redgrave are also set to star in Jim Sheridan’s adaptation of Sebastian Barry’s novel.
The movie will center around the story of a woman’s (Mara) long stay in a mental institution. James is rumored to be up for the role as the local Catholic Priest and is likely to begin filming after wrapping Insurgent (the sequel to the Lionsgate hit, Divergent) currently underway in Atlanta, Georgia.
We have to admit, Theo playing a priest gives us all kinds of impure thoughts and we’re excited to see him working with some of Hollywood’s best!
