the nativity story: new (mainstream) film...

there is a new film coming out on december 1st. it is called the nativity story, which has actually more "middle eastern" or "middle eastern looking" actors.

palestinian hiam abbass (as anna), iranian shohreh aghdashloo (as elizabeth), iranian shaun toub (as joachim), sudanese siddig el fadil (as archangel gabriel), jordanian nadim sawalha (as melchoir), moroccan farida ouchani (as ruth) and algerian said amadis (as tero) are some of them.

although the cast is led middle eastern looking australian actress keisha castle-hughes (as mary) and middl eastern looking american actor oscar isaac (as joseph), does this mean the film will be more true to the story of jesus?
