14 Actors Who Have Played Gods

By  | 

Haven't heard of Gods Behaving Badly? It's okay; we hadn't either, until recently. The upcoming film, based on the novel of the same name, follows the ancient Greek gods, who, it turns out, are not only alive and well but managing a brownstone in New York. Last week, casting was announced, and believe you me, it looks like it's going to be hilarious. Oliver Platt as Apollo? Win! Edie Falco as Artemis? Sold! John Turturro as Hades? On par with James Woods! Christopher Walken as Zeus? PERFECT. We've walked you through the actors who have played the Devil before; so now, in honor of Gods Behaving Badly, we bring 14 actors who have all played gods, ranging from Greek to Norse to Christian to fantasy deities. Time to get smiting!
