For the first time ever, producer, author and preacher DeVon Franklin is in front of the camera instead of behind it as he stars as Josiah in JESUS REVOLUTION. Josiah is a reporter with TIME Magazine. He’s been sent to report on The Jesus Movement that’s sweeping across the nation. JESUS REVOLUTION is a historical telling, bringing to life The Jesus Movement that swept the country in the late 60’s and early 70s. In the 1970s, young Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) is searching for all the right things in all the wrong places: until he meets Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie-street-preacher. Together with Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer), they open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to an unexpected revival of radical and newfound love, leading to what TIME Magazine dubbed a JESUS REVOLUTION.
Below is a DeVon talking about his role as Josiah:
