Jim Caviezel

Actor; Known for CBS's "Person of Interest" & "The Passion of the Christ"

Jim Caviezel Biography

From Jim Caviezel's earliest supporting roles in films like Terrence Malick's "The Thin Red Line," he was often cast as brooding, deeply pained men like the mourning firefighter who communicates with his dead father in "Frequency" or the vengeful military reject in "Deja vu." With his compelling screen presence and dashing, vintage Hollywood looks, he carried off a successful remake of "The Count of Monte Cristo," also making an excellent showing in the remake of the television series "The Prisoner," which showcased the actor's forte for playing introspective but imperiled protagonists.

Born Sept. 26, 1968, Caviezel spent his formative years in the Pacific Northwest where he hoped to one day play basketball at the University of Washington. While working towards that goal with a spot on the basketball team at Bellevue Community College, Caviezel's professional sports dreams ended with a sidelining injury. His interests soon drifted elsewhere, including "discovering" the school's acting program. He went on to appear in Seattle-area stage productions and transferred to the theater program at the University of Washington before landing his first film role as an airline clerk in Gus Van Sant's "My Own Private Idaho."

Moving to Los Angeles, he found acting work on stage, in guest spots on television series, and with a sizable role as Warren Earp in Lawrence Kasdan's "Wyatt Earp." Caviezel was a teammate of Matt Le Blanc's in "Ed" before appearing as a recruit training for the Navy SEALs alongside Demi Moore's "G.I. Jane." The actor's profile and stock in Hollywood rose significantly with his next two projects, Ang Lee's Civil War epic "Ride with the Devil" and Terrence Malick's WWII ensemble drama "The Thin Red Line." The latter earned Caviezel the title of Most Promising Actor from the Chicago Critic's Association for his role as a philosophically minded soldier.

Caviezel got his breakout role when he was cast in the novel, engaging thriller "Frequency," playing a New York City firefighter who can communicate via short-wave radio with his long-dead father, prompting him to try to prevent his father's tragic death in a warehouse fire. After that intense and emotional performance, he was also effective as the homeless man Hayley Joel Osment takes into his mother's home in "Pay It Forward." Caviezel's next turn was opposite Jennifer Lopez in the noir-ish thriller "Angel Eyes" as a mysterious, melancholy amnesiac drawn to a streetwise police officer.

In a more swashbuckling mode, the dashing actor took on the role of Alexander Dumas' hero Edmond Dantes who, after being falsely imprisoned, escapes to extract his revenge in the guise of "The Count of Monte Cristo" in the 2002 remake of the familiar tale. After this string of haunted and tormented heroes, Caviezel assumed a supporting role playing Ashley Judd's identity-switching husband who is charged with murder in the thriller "High Crimes." The challenging role was followed by another lesser-seen performance as a man who embarks on a high-octane cat-and-mouse game to avenge the death of his wife in "Highwaymen."

Caviezel found himself at the center of one of the most talked-about films of the year in 2004 when he took on the role of Jesus Christ in director Mel Gibson's much-debated "The Passion of the Christ." While the film sparked much heated speculation and discussion regarding Gibson's intended agenda, it became an unexpected box office phenomenon as curious filmgoers of all religious backgrounds turned out to sample its brutal, hyper-realistic, yet compelling look at the torturous savagery of Christ's crucifixion. Caviezel was well-cast for the sensitive role; one part hero and one part victim, providing an anchor for the audience and providing Christ with a human face that earned the audience's empathy. Caviezel went on to portray another mythic character in "Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius," where played enigmatic golfer Bobby Jones, the only player ever to win the Grand Slam, as well as the U.S., British, and Amateur Opens.

In another limited release, Caviezel played one of a group of hostages trying to piece together the events that led to their kidnapping in the ensemble "Unknown" before he was cast as a dangerous and unbalanced criminal in "Deja vu," Tony Scott's non-linear terrorism thriller starring a heroic Denzel Washington. He went on to portray real-life French journalist Freidoune Sahebjam in "The Stoning of Soraya M.," an adaptation of Sahebjam's book about a victim of the cruel practice of "stoning" accused criminals to death. The chilling film was well-received on the festival circuit and Caviezel returned to the multiplex in the entertaining sci-fi offering "Outlander," which did well with audiences.

In 2009, he was cast as the lead in the AMC revival of the 1960s drama "The Prisoner." With its blend of psychological drama and mystery, the show was a perfect outlet for the actor's intensity, and he was well received in the title role of a former government agent held hostage in a mysterious village.

He currently stars on "Person of Interest," a CBS crime drama that revolves around a former CIA agent (Jim Caviezel) recruited by a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes in New York City. The show won Favorite New TV Drama at the 2012 People's Choice Awards.
