‘One Tree Hill’ star Chad Michael Murray discusses ‘Left Behind’

Famous for his role on the CW’s One Tree Hill actor Chad Michael Murray now joins the ensemble cast the reboot of the Left Behind franchise with Nic Cage as the lead.

Talking with The Blaze he explained the appeal to play the role made famous by Kirk Cameron in the original films.

“I just liked his demeanor. I like the fact that he’s always investigating and always trying to put (the pieces together),” he said. “Buck leads with compassion. He’s seen the dark aspects of the word, he’s seen the light.”

Buck Williams is a famous journalist who sets out to understand the disappearance of millions of people as a result of the Rapture.

“I knew about the ‘Left Behind’ book series … I knew that the story had been done before, and I knew that they could do a really, really rad version,” he said, adding that Cage’s involvement also attracted him to the role. “I grew up watching him and I’m a Nic Cage fan. It was interesting to get to work with someone you look up to.”

Nicolas Cage stars as Rayford Steele with Lea Thompson as his wife Irene. Hattie Durham is played by Nicky Whelan with Jordin Sparks, Quinton Aaron, Martin Klebba, Cassi Thomson and William Ragsdale also starring.

The film is directed by Vic Armstrong, the famous stunt coordinator and stunt double, and the script was written by Paul Lalonde, John Patus based on the popular novels by Jerry B Jenkins and Tim LaHaye.
