HOLLYWOOD – Martin Short is to play preacher Joel Osteen in a new film called ‘Suffer the Little Children, No Seriously’.
Martin Short is to play Joel Osteen in a new film based on the Christian preacher’s life and ministry. Short spoke with the Studio Exec earlier today:
We’ve actually had this in the works for a while but the publicity was too good today not to announce it. We will cover everything. The rise of this religious superstar, the prayers, the drama but mainly the teeth. Jesus Christ look at the teeth on the man.
Joel Osteen has been in the news recently for refusing to open the doors of his mega Church to allow shelter to the refugees from Hurricane Harvey. Osteen had this to say:
We’ve just had new carpets put in. Jesus would get it.
He was also criticized for claiming that the Hurricane was actually a large imaginary rabbit that only existed in the mind of James Stewart. ‘I’ve seen the film,’ he said.
Suffer the Little Children, No Seriously will be released in 2019.
