Mel Gibson made EW's Power List
Nothing says power like self-financing a potentially offensive, stomach-churningly violent $25 million epic about the death of Jesus Christ in which most of the dialogue is spoken in ancient Aramaic. Of course, there's no better way to lose said power, too. By this time next year, we'll know which way ''The Passion of Christ'' blows Gibson's standing in Hollywood. Meanwhile, he'll be trading his prayer shawl for a biker's helmet; he's just signed to play an ATF agent who infiltrates a motorcycle gang in Warner's ''Under and Alone.''
