Jim Caviezel Decides, “Screw it. I’ll Do Television.”

Friday, March 4 by

That guy who played Jesus in that Jesus movie, Jesus: The Jesus Years, has decided that he would like to act again. Jim Caviezel has signed on to play the lead in “Person Of Interest,” the CBS pilot from J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan.

On the program, Caviezel will play a CIA paramilitary who is believed to be dead. He’s employed by Michael Emerson‘s (presumably creepy) billionaire to fight violent crime in New York City. So he’ll likely just hang out at Jets games. It should also be noted that Caviezel will fight the crime before the crime actually happens. It’s like “Early Edition” with judo chops and swish pans.
