THE CHOSEN Actor Says Show Has ‘Started A Real Movement’

THE CHOSEN Actor Says Show Has ‘Started A Real Movement’

By Movieguide® Contributor

THE CHOSEN actor Abe Bueno-Jallad, who plays Big James, is sharing his thoughts on the “movement” the show has started in Hollywood. 

“I really do believe that it’s a piece of entertainment that anybody can watch and be impacted on and that’s why it’s doing so well,” the actor said on the “Good Agency” podcast. 

Bueno-Jallad continued, “There is an entertainment component where we have to find the gray area from scripture, from history, to create this entertainment, and I think we do a pretty darn good job of it. I think the perspective that we have and the way that we tackle certain things is something that hasn’t been done before…I can see that the industry has eyes on us because we’re doing something. We started a real movement.”

The actor pointed out that THE CHOSEN is “changing the conversation” when it comes to what Hollywood is giving audiences.  

“People want stories about wholesomeness, about trials and tribulations and about coming out on top with a different perspective,” Bueno-Jallad explained. “I think our show serves that purpose, and we also have a great source—the original source, the best story ever told.”

THE CHOSEN has been wildly popular since its release, earning praise from fans and critics alike.

Creator Dallas Jenkins gave his thoughts on why the show speaks to so many people today.

“THE CHOSEN is capturing [the] first century,” he explained. “It feels like 2,000 years ago, and you realize that when you watch the show — wow, they were going through the same things that we were. Their questions were the same. They were facing oppression. They were facing division. Their doubts were the same. What I’m hoping through THE CHOSEN is that you’ll see that the answer is the same 2,000 years ago that it is today.”

Fans of the show are anxiously awaiting Season 4, which wrapped production earlier this year. No release date has been announced so far, but THE CHOSEN is expected to return some time in the first few months of 2024. 

“I actually think that this is going to be the most impactful season we’ve ever done, emotionally and spiritually,” Jenkins said of the upcoming fourth season.
