Constantine the Great

Robert Vincent Jones

Cast in the pivotal role of Emperor Flavius Constantinus (Constantine the Great) is Robert Vincent Jones. The Western New York native has worked as a professional model for the past ten years, appearing in national print and television ads. He is now ready and more than capable of making a name for himself in the acting profession. With his charismatic appeal, physical prowess, and photogenic presence, Robert is certain to shine in the larger-than-life role of the Fourth Century ruler who struggled to redeem the Roman Empire from its violent persecution of Christianity.

“Robert is an ideal actor to work with,” said Jerry Hartke, the writer and director of Nicholas of Myra. “He has prepared thoroughly for the role of Constantine. He’s done his homework and is passionate about getting the performance right. Not only does he have a way with the camera, he’s a genuinely nice guy--very down-to-earth and easy to communicate with. I immediately felt as if no one else needed to be considered for the role of Constantine the Great. This is a character Robert was born to play.”
