'Passion of the Christ' Actor Jim Caviezel Sounds Off on Hollywood Blackballing

MRC   "At some point, everyone will have to answer for what they have done.”
Those are the words of actor Jim Caviezel, most famous for his portrayal of Jesus Christ in the 2004 blockbuster “The Passion of the Christ.”
"Caviezel is referring to sinners having to account to God for their actions. To him this includes the Hollywood producers who allegedly shunned Caviezel after he took on the role of Jesus in the film, “The Passion of the Christ.”
" 'The Passion of the Christ,” directed by Mel Gibson, earned $612 million worldwide on a $30 million production budget, making it the highest grossing religious film in history.


"Caviezel made his remarks to Polish journalist and film critic Lukasz Adamski for the website wpolityce.pl.
"An excerpt:
“ 'You will not work here [in Hollywood] anymore.” Mel Gibson told you that when you took up the role in his film. To what extent was he right?
"All of the sudden I stopped being one of five most popular actors in the studio and I haven’t done anything wrong. I just played Jesus. Was I personally touched by this rejection? Well, everyone has their cross to bear. The world changes in the particular direction but after all, I will not be in this world forever. Neither will the producers from Hollywood. At some point, everyone will have to answer for what they have done.
"Where do you think this reaction come from? Are people afraid of such films? Of evocative picture of Jesus on the screen? People really stood for it. Over half a billion dollars income is a great success. There are even reports on conversions after watching the film!" . . .
