Hundreds of thousands of young people are expected to make the pilgrimage to Sydney for World Youth Day in July, millions more will be watching on television.

One of the features will be the Stations of the Cross – the depiction of Jesus’s final hours. And the Church’s casting agent has found 12 Apostles and a Judas but they’re still searching for Jesus for the re-enactment of the Stations of the Cross.

The re-enactment will be telecast live to the world, with more than one billion people watching.

I’m thinking about trying out for the part. Now I look a little bit more like a Buddha with the big belly and a strong want of sitting around but hey don’t typecast me this early in my career. I do have a beard.
