You mean that playing a guy who led to thousands of years of persecution and massacres against Jews in a movie portraying Jews as responsible for it is getting you blackballed in Hollywood?

Why I never

His career was never that great. Pre-passion:

Some cheesy time-travel movie with Dennis Quaid.
A decent, not great, adaptation of "The Count of Monte Cristo."
An incredibly stupid Ashley Judd "thriller."

Antisemitism is probably a bad career path in Hollywood.

And playing a bloody myth that bleeds more than 12 pints and still has time to be miserable and piss and moan and how bad his situation is - well, good luck with that, enjoy making your gore porn.

I just noticed looking at the pictures of him as Jesus that he wore a fake nose. A somewhat longer, more hooked nose.
Curious.

I think Jesus's murder (and the stories surrounding said murder) led to the persecution slightly more than Jesus. But feel free to blame the JC.

Before Passion he was mostly a supporting actor in 1-2 movies a year. After the movie he is mostly a supporting actor in 1-2 movies a year.

Combine him and DAniel Day Lewis, and they've had a decent career.

Newsflash: You were never a unique snowflake to begin with.

Sure, they're different people, but they're so remarkably similar as to be easily confusable to people who don't read the credits or IMDB.

From his Wikipedia page: Caviezel donated $2,100 to the campaign to re-elect U.S. Senator Rick Santorum in 2006.

Maybe you don't get work because you're farktarded. I give him about 6 months before he is on Breitbart's hive of scum and villainy whining about the "Hollywood Elites" (i.e. Jews) holding down the poor, persecuted male, white, Catholic Republican.

Well, duh, It's not like casting directors are ever going to see you as a romantic lead after that movie.
 
2011-05-02 04:25:04 AM
Okay, I consider myself are relatively knowledgeable about actors and actress, but I think I barely knew who he was before he got hired for 'Texas Jesus Massacre'. And his carreer before that did not really show him as a bankable actor.

Sounds more like somebody reached his peak, is now over the hill, and is willing to blame politics for his failed carreer, instead of acknowledging he simply had a low shelf-life.

See, he's thinking that being the lead in a movie that made half a billion should make him a bankable star. But that movie only made half a billion because of the very specific subject matter and the very narrow marketing of it. In other words, people weren't rushing to the theaters to see the latest Jim Caviezel movie. Hey, if Mel Gibson wants to cast him for Passion 2: Resurrection Boogaloo, he'll probably sign up and get a nice payday out of it. But barring that, his name above the title ain't money in the bank.

I think I only know his name because it's been a punchline on Family Guy. And it might have had to do with how funny-looking his last name is.

He doesn't have the charisma to be a "star" in Hollywood and he doesn't have to chops to be a character actor, so as a result he has a hard time getting work. He reminds me of Dirk Benedict, Stephen Dorff and all those other pretty boys who's careers never took off. Don't blame bigotry and be grateful that you had the right look at the right time and actually had a brief career.

It's not like too many people have ever had the "How come so-and-so's career never took off?" Yeah, he/she was awesome", conversation about him. Hell, I just had had that talk about Gretchen Mol today. I don't think I'll ever have it about Jim Caviezel.
 
2011-05-02 04:54:46 AM
Or it could be those other roles you had sucking ass. I saw Outlanders for free and I still want my money back.

He should be crucified for what he and ITV did to The Prisoner.

If that had been G.W. or something I'd still feel kind of sorry for him not getting work. But that is unforgivable.

The actor spoke about the film and its negative effect on his career while at a megachurch in Orlando to promote a new audio book of the Bible.

Maybe the church could employ you, christer?

Yes, he's the only actor to star in a big budget film to be never seen again.

It was until Shia LaBeouf came along then it just became far too obvious. At least previous Jewish actors had enough talent to make you think they could had made it if they were WASPS.

I'd read somewhere that he is a devout Catholic and would turn down parts in films that he considered unchristian.

-He didn't write the script, he just played the part. The real blame lies with both AMC and ITV.

2011-05-02 08:12:59 AM
I think he's a better actor than people give him credit for being.

Unfortunately, he has gotten had some crappy roles (chiefly the
abortion that is THE PRISONER remake, lately anyway).

He did make a good Jesus, though.
 
2011-05-02 08:43:53 AM
I'm guessing it's more his association with Mel Gibson than Jesus that has soured his career. Mel Gibson's barely one step above Charlie Sheen in the kook department, which is OK for them since they're already rich. Not so good for Jim Caviezel.

Then again, Hollywood is a very crowded and fickle place. The Jesus Chainsaw Massacre was a huge success but it didn't exactly make Jim Caviezel a household name.
 
2011-05-02 08:49:13 AM
I wouldn't say his career has been ruined. If you look at his imdb page, he hasn't had any blockbusters, but he still gets work.

One of the earlier posters had it right. He doesn't have the chops to carry a movie by himself. Guy just needs to look for more big ensemble movies, like Thin Red Line.

Was he? That movie bored me to tears... Woody Harrelson blowing his ass off was funny tho.

I picked up a DVD with him in it for $5 when the local video store closed down. It's called the Outlander. I think. It's about him as a metrosexual space weiner who lands amongst some Vikings, because there was some sort of problem with his spaceship, and then he prances around tra-la-la helping them kill a big monster that is attacking them at night. I don't know why. I would have left. Anyway he digs a big pit and they're all thinking the monster is going to fall into it; I think it does but then it kicks the sh*t out of them anyway. They had fire and stuff, but no luck, sh*t kicked out of them anyway, badda-bing badda-boom. I can't remember how it ended, I presume he Jesused the monster to death and the Norse were all grateful and gave him magic for his spaceship. Who knows. It was a f*cked up movie.
