JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME is set to become Hollywood's most unlikely Hasidic Jew in his latest action movie THE ORDER.
In a bizarre twist of the plot, which is sure to enrage
orthodox Jews, the Belgian movie star becomes a bearded religious man in a bid to avoid the police.
Producer AVI LERNER insists Van Damme won't be taking the role too seriously. He says, "The most he'll have to do is say 'Shalom.'"
