Jonathan Roumie, the actor who plays Jesus in “The Chosen,” also thanked Schrader. “Paul, thank you for giving our series a chance…The fact that you’ve penned some of the greatest films in cinema history (which I studied in film school) makes your acknowledgment [sic] and praise a pivotal and sublime honor. Words fail. So grateful…”
“You’re d*** good in the hardest role ever played,” Schrader replied.
Jordan Walker Ross, who plays “Little James” in the theatrical release, told Schrader, “I just wanted to say thank you for watching! I am so glad you enjoy our show and it was so surreal to see your post considering how big a fan I am of yours. Thank you for making my whole month!”
Quite a few other people responded to Schrader in the comments saying that they were now interested in watching “The Chosen” because of his post.
