  1. I remember that actor from various other shows/movies of that time. The name bit woulda been lost on me anyway because I only knew of Luther back then, being a cradle Lutheran.

  2. So does Luther – Remember that grifter in “The Sting”? Not to mention the adulterer who had a dream (Did he have the Gospel?)!

  3. Check out “John Calvin” the actor at Internet Movie Database, You could write quite a funny little narrative, “A Theological Tour of Hollywood with John Calvin,” just using the titles of the series that John Calvin appeared in.
