Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman, who has played God in the movies, got a special tour of the Western Wall complex from Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, rabbi of the Holy Sites of Israel.
Freeman is in town to film a documentary, The Story of God, about mankind’s quest to understand the divine creator.
According to reports, the actor who took the role of God in Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty, is now filming a series that explores religion and rituals from around the world.
“The story of God is one of the greatest mysteries and most important ideas in the world. For me, this is a personal and enduring quest to understand the divine, and I am humbled by the opportunity to take viewers along on this incredible journey,” Freeman told Variety.
The crew came to Jerusalem from the Giza Pyramids in Egypt.
Local media say Freeman will spend a few days in Israel before jetting off to India.
The Story of God is expected to air on National Geographic Channel in 2016.
