WHAT IT IS Mel Gibson's ancient-language take on Jesus's final 12 hours, which withstood controversy over its extreme gore and alleged anti-Semitic content to become one of the top-grossing movies of all time.

Jim Caviezel: He played Jesus – what’s he done since?

WHAT IT IS Mel Gibson’s ancient-language take on Jesus’ final 12 hours, which withstood controversy over its extreme gore and alleged anti-Semitic content to become one of the top-grossing movies of all time

COSTARS Maia Morgenstern as Mary, Hristo Shopov as Pontius Pilate

HIS CAREER B.C. Playing Dennis Quaid’s grown son in the 2000 time-travel drama Frequency got him noticed, and he only had eyes for J. Lo in 2001’s Angel Eyes.

HIS CAREER A.D. He played real-life sports heroes in Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius (2004) and Madison (released in 2005 after spending years on the shelf).

FINAL JUDGMENT Since Passion, Caviezel’s career has been less than heavenly. Maybe he needs to make another movie in Aramaic.
