Neal McDonough, a renowned Hollywood actor, has taken on a unique role in his latest project, “Left Behind: Rise of the Antichrist.” Directed by Kevin Sorbo, who also stars in the movie, the film depicts life after the biblical rapture and will be released in theaters on January 26.
In a recent interview on “The Edifi Podcast,” McDonough expressed his gratitude for being part of the cast and shed light on his character, Jonathan Stonagal, a powerful figure central to the “Left Behind” plot. He noted that playing such characters highlights how people should be cautious of those who claim to be leaders but only seek to benefit themselves.
McDonough also spoke candidly about his Catholic faith and how it has blessed him with a loving family and a multifaceted career. He considers being in front of the camera as his second happiest place, with his wife being the first. The actor has made headlines for his refusal to do sex scenes and kissing on-screen, citing personal policies that align with his values.
He hopes that “Left Behind: Rise of the Antichrist” will encourage people to build faith in God and themselves, emphasizing the importance of hard work and being a good person. Despite the challenges and temptations that life may throw at us, McDonough encourages turning to the Lord for guidance and support.
