  •  The actor would fall within the spectrum, though (3+ / 0-)

    definitely at the more lightly pigmented end.

    He's Portuguese, light olive toned skin with dark brown eyes and hair.  Judging from his IMDB, they lightened his hair and beard for the role.

    The effect in that shot is stunning and not accidental.  The disciples almost all look like they fit in the scene.  "Jesus" is just dark enough not to look like a wandering Viking, but is the closest by far in pigment and facial features to a European norm.

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
