Actor Kelsey Grammer is more than someone who portrays a man of faith in the new movie Jesus Revolution. He said he also walks the walk — and he’s proud to do it.
Let’s start with the movie.
It’s based on real-life pastor Chuck Smith, who decided to invite hippies introduce rock music into his fledgling church. Along the way, Smith received help from Lonnie Frisbee of street preacher Lonnie Frisbee (played by Jonathan Roumie).
Grammer, 68, watched the finished product with wife Kayte Walsh.
“It’s really uplifting. It’s a good movie,” Grammer said, via USA Today. “My wife and I saw it together. She was just dissolved in tears and said, ‘It’s the best thing you’ve ever done.’”
Grammer has become a full-fledged protestant after being raised as a Christian Scientist. He said he remembers the Jesus hippie movement of the 1960s and ’70s.
“They were energized and optimistic, and I thought that was a great thing to see,” he said.
