Okay, "Lost" Fans...

If you're a Facebook friend of mine, you might be aware that I've developed a certain appreciation for someone on the TV show "Lost." It didn't occur until recently, I guess because prior to this season, we really haven't seen much more of Desmond Hume beyond his consciousness traveling, crazy-eyed, wild haired, thickly Irish accented rantings of "Yer gunna dyeee, brothah" whenever he appeared in a scene. Anyway, I've really come to look forward to his rantings, his accent, AND his character on the show, not to mention the fact that he's not at all hideously ugly to look at.

So imagine my surprise when Ren brought this movie home to watch over Easter weekend, and lo and behold, I looked at the DVD cover and saw Desmond Hume, aka Henry Ian Cusick, as Jesus Christ. Pretty wild, huh?

Did anyone else know this? I'd seen the movie when it first came out but totally didn't make the connection until just yesterday. After watching it again this weekend, I must say that he does a really good job as Jesus. Even without the Irish accent and the consciousness traveling.
