LANSING, Mich. - March 10, 2015 - PRLog -- The film draws from a perspective not many of the Bible’s authors wrote about- Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness. In choosing such an actor to play the Devil, producer’s looked for an actor who could deliver a nuanced tone to a very dark figure. Taymour Ghazi, a San Francisco native, was selected to play the role. Taymour has appeared in numerous feature films and television shows. A body of work ranging from a supporting lead in the comedy feature "Division III: Football’s Finest" (Showtime/Netflix) and "Spike’s Men of Action" spots to gritty dramas such as "The Forgotten" opposite Christian Slater and "Criminal Minds" alongside Joe Mantegna.

Playing opposite of Ghazi and Perry’s characters, is Shane Hagedorn cast as the dutiful angel Gabriel. Shane, a Michigan native, has played on stage, a range of roles from Shakespeare to Tennesee Williams, earning Shane an Irene Ryan acting nominee for Conference of the Birds. In film, Shane’s range stretches further, co-starring as the lovable Benny, in Handlebar (2007) and many more supporting roles like the tough-as-nails-cop Nichols, in Ashes of Eden (2014)

“I’m humbled by the opportunity to be part of such an interesting and inspiring film. To also play opposite in a supporting role, of my friend DJ Perry, is a big bonus. I am looking forward to the experience as we forge a head in the deserts of Arizona this spring. “         – Shane Hagedorn

The film has drawn great interest from distributors looking to promote inspiring and message based films to audiences worldwide. Principal photography begins Spring of 2015.
