Neal McDonough, the actor known for his roles in “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Band Brothers,” says he’s excited to make family-friendly movies that glorify God.
McDonough, who also starred in “The 100,” “The Flash,” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” has significant roles in a new Angel Studios science fiction movie, “The Shift,” and in another Angel Studios film, “Homestead,” which is based on the best-selling book series “Black Autumn.” He recently discussed Angel supporters at Illuminate, Angel’s yearly event.
McDonough told Angel fans, “What you are doing is creating a place where our families can watch television and films for years to come knowing that it’s for God’s glory.” He added that Angel Studios is filling a void in the entertainment industry for families. The company is known for debuting “The Chosen” and producing over 20 projects.
He continued, “We have five kids, Ruve and I. How many times do you get to turn on any network or streaming service and have zero fear about what your kids are about to see? That’s Angel, and that’s because of you guys.” McDonough’s wife, Ruve, is a producer. The actor added, “We’re going to be here for a long time making great stuff for you all.”
McDonough and Ruve are recognized as one of the more family-focused Hollywood couples. He told Christian Headlines that having the right priorities for a marriage to work is vital. He said, “I always say I can go through life with one hand tied behind my back as long as the other hand is being held in front and led by Ruve’s hand. So it’s God first, me second, family first, me second. And that puts everything into perspective. And it’s working for us.”
Ruve added that communication is critical, telling Christian Headlines, “Neal and I are very, very blessed.”
