Photo: Collider/YouTube Actor Andrew Garfield is known for roles in hit films like “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” but his string of performances in religious-themed movies has sparked questions about Garfield’s interest in spiritual matters.
From playing heroic World War II Army medic Desmond T. Doss in “Hacksaw Ridge” to evangelist Jim Bakker in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” Garfield certainly seems to choose roles with a spiritual bent.
His new limited, true-crime series, “Under the Banner of Heaven,” is the latest project dealing with the topic of religion. Garfield depicts a detective struggling with matters of faith — and murder.
With all this in mind, it’s impossible to ignore the intersection of the actor’s career with journeys of faith.

And in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Garfield, while discussing his latest project, made an interesting proclamation : if he weren’t working in Hollywood, he would likely be studying theology.
“Questions of faith and spirituality, and the mystery of a spiritual life, is what I’m drawn to the most,” Garfield said . “If I wasn’t an actor, I think I’d be doing some kind of theological study.”
This is undoubtedly an intriguing proclamation for a famous Hollywood actor. However, Garfield has made other comments in the past about faith and religion that have also sparked headlines.He made a splash in 2017, when he discussed his role as Father Sebastiao Rodrigues in Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” — yet another faith-themed film.“What was really easy was falling in love with this person, was falling in love with Jesus Christ, that was the most surprising thing,” he told America magazine of his experience preparing for the role. “That was the most remarkable thing — falling in love, and how easy it was to fall in love with Jesus.”Just […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
