11 Hollywood actors in Mormon-themed movies
Over the years, there have been many Mormon-themed films featuring well-known Hollywood stars.
Possibly one of the first Mormon films was "Mr. Kruegar's Christmas" released in 1980 by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, starring James Stewart.
Previously the LDS Church had produced public service announcements, "Music and the Spoken Word" and other public communication projects, but it had hardly reached into movie production.
Since the release of "Mr. Kruegar's Christmas," the LDS Church has produced many films.
In addition, an increasing number of films have been produced by independent filmmakers surrounding Mormon themes.
Here is a list of some of the notable actors who have appeared in Mormon-themed movies either before or after their Hollywood careers.
