Actor Peter O'Toole died Saturday at 81 years of age.

O'Toole loved the beauty of language found in the King James Version of the Bible and described this love in a TV interview with Charlie Rose. O'Toole also described himself as "a retired Christian" when asked if he was a believer.

During his acting career O'Toole portrayed Bible characters in at least two different movies:

  • The prophet Samuel in the movie One Night With the King
  • The Three Angels in the movie The Bible: In the Beginning ...

O'Toole was scheduled to play the role of Symeon in the movie Mary which was to be released in 2014 but his name was removed today from the cast listing on the Internet Movie Database.
