For Sterling K. Brown, the chance to play a scandal-plagued pastor in a spectacular comedy film was heaven-sent.

“Blow the trumpet for Jesus.” Save Your Soul.” is Brown’s first project to be released since his Emmy-winning This Is Us series finale aired in May. Viewers will see him play a completely different character.

“There’s only so many times you can be told how much you’re going to make people cry until you get to the point where you’re like, ‘You know, I’ve got to get people to do something else, man,'” Brown told Daily Online News.

“Blow the trumpet for Jesus.” Save your soul.” Brown stars as Lee-Curtis Childs, a flamboyant pastor with a massive house and expensive clothes, whose megachurch in Atlanta closes after being accused of misconduct. The film, which opens Friday in theaters and on the Peacock, also stars Regina Hall as his wife Trinitia and follows the couple’s quest to reclaim their congregation.

Brown modeled his character after an amalgam of pastors he witnessed in YouTube clips and from his own churchgoing experiences.

“There’s something about performing for 20,000 people,” Brown, 46, said. “Even actors on stage don’t do that much. It’s getting closer to musicians or stand-up comedians and people who get a chance to see themselves on the jumbotrons. Imagine someone who starts out with the purest of intentions, wanting to do God’s work, but then to some degree also falls into a trap.”

It’s the latest major role for Brown, who won Emmys for his emotional turn as Randall Pearson on “This Is Us,” his portrayal of prosecutor Christopher Darden on “The People v. OJ Simpson” and his narration of the historical miniseries. “Lincoln: We Are Divided.”

The actor earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and describes his three years at Manhattan University as a formative experience.

“I loved the energy of New York, seeing the theater there and learning the craft at the same time, and I got a lot of great instruction,” Brown said.

“I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t gone to NYU,” he said. “I know a lot of people take different paths in terms of getting into this career, but for me, it’s been an amazing journey. Being in a class, being a year behind Mahershala Ali, Josh Radnor a few years ahead of me, and a lot of people you’ve never heard of who are just spectacular artists, there’s nothing like the osmosis of being around really talented people.”

Brown previously gained comedy recognition with four episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which earned him one of his nine Emmy nominations.

Using the “Honk for Jesus” mockumentary format. Save Your Soul.” allowed Brown to explore issues within the church through satire.

“Growing up Christian, I’m a very spiritual and faith-filled person, so I think the opportunity to show love for an institution while also criticizing it and exploring questions about how the institution can be better was something I was personally interested in,” Brown said.

Brown and Hall were also producers on “Honk for Jesus”. Save Your Soul.” as well as Academy Award-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele and Academy Award-winning actor Daniel Kaluuya, whose credits include “Get Out” and “Nope.”

“I love Jordan. I love everything he’s done so far,” Brown said. “Daniel, as an actor I think he’s absolutely exceptional, so to have more creative minds coming into this thing [was great].

“The idea for Trinitia’s scene with her mother came directly from Daniel. I was like, ‘I can’t even imagine the movie without the scene with her mother.’ They are great collaborators.”
