Take your pick… Jim Caviezel first received real attention for his role as Pvt. Witt in the ensemble drama A Thin Red Line directed by Terrence Malick, but some credit his performance in Frequency as his breakthrough performance.
Jim Caviezel was more interested in sports growing up than he was acting, and it was until he injured his foot as a sophomore in college that he gave up on his dreams of being a professional basketball player and turned to acting instead. Caviezel’s first acting job was in an undergraduate stage adaptation of Come Blow Your Horn.
Playing Jesus Christ in ‘Passion of The Christ’:
Before playing Jesus Christ, Caviezel spent months learning Aramaic and getting his body ready for the physical demands of the role. During the shoot, Caviezel sat through 10 hour make-up sessions and endured freezing temperatures while shooting scenes in which he was on the cross. Caviezel was even struck by lightning while filming (he walked away uninjured) and had his shoulder dislocated when working on a sequence at Cinecitta.
