“Jesus Revolution” left Kelsey Grammer in tears during interview
Kelsey Grammer’s comments were made after a clip from the film was shown on the show.
“I love this film,” the actor confessed through tears. “I really love it.”
When he and his wife, Kayte Walsh, watched the first cut of the film in their home, she loved it too.
“Kayte told me it was the best thing I had ever done when she saw it,” he recalled. “She started crying.”
Kelsey Grammar: “This is a story of a man who is looking for his own faith”
During an emotional moment, Kelsey Grammer described his character as “a man who is looking for his own faith, and he finds it, too.” He described his character as “a man whose church is empty, and he cannot get traction, and he starts to fear being fired from his job as a pastor.”
“Hippies enter his life,” he explained. “And he finds new purpose and started a movement that is still going, and it is extraordinary.”
One of the hosts of the show, Kelly Ripa, asked Kelsey Grammer whether the story was true.
The actor then told Kelly Ripa and her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, that several people had approached him, saying: “You are playing Chuck Smith. They would say: ‘Oh, I listen to him all the time’ or ‘He married us’ or ‘Chuck Smith baptized me.’”
“This light can be seen in their eyes,” he said before breaking down in tears again.
Kelsey Grammer, 67, is a Christian. His role as Frasier Crane in “Frasier” and “Cheers” was well-known for more than 20 years.
“Jesus Revolution” is a Kingdom Story film produced by Lionsgate. The new film was directed by Jon Erwin of “I Can Only Imagine” and “American Underdog.”
The movie also stars Joel Courtney, Anna Grace Barlow and Kimberly Williams-Paisley.
“We are in the midst of another revival”
“Jesus Revolution” also tells the story of Pastor Greg Laurie. He was a teenager during the Jesus People Movement of the 1970s.
Despite this, he founded one of the country’s largest churches, Harvest Christian Fellowship, in Riverside, California.
During the special feature of the film on YouTube, Pastor Greg Laurie explained that “the Jesus Movement was an awakening.”
“It was the last great American awakening and the most significant of all,” he said.
In the movie, Joel Courtney plays Pastor Greg Laurie, a teenage boy who believes another great movement is just around the corner.
“We are in the midst of another revival in this country and around the world,” he said.
