Biography

Any discussion of actor Jim Caviezel would likely reference his sensitive portrayal of Jesus Christ in Mel Gibson's controversial "The Passion of the Christ" (2004), though the actor's resume included dozens of other memorable dramatic performances in blockbusters and indie films alike. From his earliest supporting roles in films like Terrence Malick's "The Thin Red Line" (1998), Caviezel was often cast as brooding, deeply pained men like the mourning firefighter who communicates with his dead father in "Frequency" (2000) or the vengeful military reject in "Déjà vu" (2006). With his compelling screen presence and dashing, vintage Hollywood looks, he carried off a successful remake of "The Count of Monte Cristo" (2002); likewise making an excellent showing in the remake of the television series "The Prisoner" (AMC, 2009- ), which showcased the actor's forte for playing introspective but imperiled protagonists.
