10 Surprising Celebrity Endorsements for ‘The Bible’ — The Epic TV Series Premiering Tonight
“The Bible,” a new series that will premiere on the History Channel Sunday night (9 p.m. ET), continues to gain the attention of Christians and non-Christians alike. But one of the most fascinating elements about it — a five-week program that will expose viewers to 10 hours of Biblical reenactments (two hours each Sunday) — are the celebrity endorsements it has received.
From singer Christina Aguilera to “Glee” star Jane Lynch, Hollywood Twitter accounts are abuzz with messages about “The Bible,” a project that was created and produced by famed reality show producer Mark Burnett and his wife, actress Roma Downey (see the duo discuss the project on TheBlaze TV last week).
On the one hand, these endorsements are surprising. After all, this is Hollywood — an industry stereotypically uninterested in matters of faith. But on the other, Burnett and Downey are power players who have a plethora of friends and contacts in the industry. These individuals respect their work and are likely supporting “The Bible” as a result.
Regardless of the reasoning, it’s worth noting who’s helping to spread the word. Here are 10 of the most surprising names and Twitter messages:
“Glee” star Jane Lynch:
Singer Christina Aguilera:
Rapper P. Diddy:
Singer Nick Lachey:
Psychic John Edward:
The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson:
Actress and Wife of Kiss Front Man Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed:
Maroon 5 Singer Adam Levine:
Reality Star Kate Gosselin:
There are certainly some surprising names on that list. Others who were more unsurprising enthusiasts include former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and pastors Joel Osteen and Rick Warren.
