I thought maybe Mel Gibson was driving.
What would Jesus ride?
Actors who played Jesus have the same problem as those that played Superman.
That role, plus his fairly outspoken pro-life stance, has surely cost him work in Hollywood. So much for the standard retort of "Hollywood only cares about money, not politics". This guy was in one of the highest grossing movies of all time, but is apparently persona non grata in Hollywood power circles.
He was good in the Dumas classic “The Count of Monte Cristo” too.
Liberalism is a disease of the mind...or at least a psychological way of clinging onto the pettiness that was high school.
Caviezel is talented and extremely handsome.
Wish he would get more roles but Hollywood is clubby and mean.
His filmography since “Passion of the Christ.” I guess “Stroke of Genius” doesn’t really count, since it’s the same year of release. He was really good in that, and I loved in him “Count of Monte Cristo.”

The Count of Monte Cristo is excellent - rent it!
That’s an interesting list. With the exception of the Denzel Washington flick, “Deja Vu” (and Caviezel only had a very small, supporting roll), I don’t think there’s a single project their with a budget over $20M, maybe even $10M. That’s reflective of the fact that Caviezel isn’t getting the parts that his pre-”Passion” career would merit, IMHO.
Caviezel’s reward in Heaven, for his role in passion, will far exceed anything that hollywood can offer.
He was also incredible in the best movie of the 1990’s, “The Thin Red Line”.
I don’t see many movies, so I didn’t know whether any of these parts was significant.
In before the “murdercycle” “donorcycle” morons.
You should check out “Deja Vu”. Terrific.
Well, His disciples preferred a Honda since “they were all in one accord”.
I believe I also read that he refuses to do nude or overtly sexual scenes because he feels it's disrespectful to his wife.
That’s great, but too bad it won’t pay the rent while he’s still alive.
I have read that as well. But, so does Denzel Washington (think about it, have you ever seen Denzel even "kiss" a woman on screen? Not very often.), and it doesn't seem to have hurt his career at all.
It really irritates me that an an actor with the body of work that Caviezel posses, can't get any of the bigger, more coveted roles in Hollywood. There is a Hollywood "blacklist" for conservative minded actors and this is just added proof.
If it was an old 750 Tiger or Bonneville with straight pipes it could DEFINITELY be heard throughout the land.
He doesn’t pay rent. He starred in the highest grossing film of all time. He owns.
Maybe he just doesn’t want to work then?
Four independent films and a television series in the last year doesn’t exactly sound like a man who’d rather sit on his couch all day and watch game shows.
HAR HAR HAR!
Maybe he just doesn’t want to work in Hollywood? Or he’s particular about the scripts he’s given.
Or maybe he’s being passed over for studio films because he’s an outspoken Christian and a conservative.
LOL. I stand corrected. Touche’.
Apparently you slept through the 90s.
“Frequency” is a favorite of mine. My late father was a fireman and the 69 Mets were great guys.
Yeah, I know... some people hate it. I think it’s the best war film ever made.
Frequency is awesome! One of my family’s favorite and a real mind twister. I highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t seen it.
Still have that razor wit eh AA. lmao.
But, Denzel has only said he won’t do nude/sex scenes if they don’t fit the movie while Caviezel specifically said he won’t do them at all because he’s married and won’t disrespect his wife. If he’s that conservatively-minded, there are probably many ways he refuses to play the Hollywood game.
Couple that with his pro-life stance and you probably have your answer.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m on your side. He’s one of my favorite actors and one I can actually respect. I’m glad he can go to sleep at night with the comfort of sticking to his convictions.
Someone with some money needs to fund a studio that would employ these talented, blacklisted, conservative actors and make movies people would actually go see.
Why rent, when I already own? /wink
