CSU student prepares for lead role in new feature film


Filming will begin soon for the new feature film “Electric Jesus” being shot entirely in the Fountain City, and one local face will be on the big screen.

Columbus native Will Oliver first stepped into the spotlight as a kid.

“I fell in love with it the way the stage lights hit me and the way the crowd reacted and I was like if I want to do something for the rest of my life, this might as well be it,” Oliver described.

Now, Oliver will play the lead guitarist in “Electric Jesus”, which follows a Christian heavy metal hair band during the summer of 1986.

“I’ve done a lot of research about ’80s hair metal bands and I’ve picked up a guitar. I’ve tried to get a little acquainted with it so, I’m trying to prepare as best I can for the entire role,” Oliver said. See more at WTVM.
