Passion Play for Peeps Down Under

Via The Huffington Post I learn that the city of Sydney has asked Mel Gibson to stage Christ's crucifixion.

I really hope he casts this young man from Hartland who made the news awhile back:
Lt. Pierre Boucher said the man took two pieces of wood, nailed them together in the form of a cross and placed them on the floor. He attached a suicide sign to the wood and then proceeded to nail one of his hands to the makeshift cross using a 14-penny nail and a hammer.

"When he realized that he was unable to nail his other hand to the board, he called 911," Boucher said.

It was unclear whether the man was seeking assistance for his injury or help in nailing down his other hand.

I mean the guy has some experience in live reenactment of the Passion; all he needs is a helping hand to make it to the big time...
