Hollywood is nothing if not vengeful. Jim Caviezel, star of Mel Gibson’s The Passion of Christ now claims that he has been blacklisted. He also says that Gibson warned him about what would happen if he took the part:
‘He said, “You’ll never work in this town again.” I told him, “We all have to embrace our crosses”.’
Caviezel, a devout Roman Catholic, seems to possess a rare idealism on behalf of his religious commitments. His decision to star as Jesus doubtless cost him millions.
