Caviezel Hits the Links

Originally posted 04/29/2004 9:00AM

Where is one to go after playing Jesus? Jim Caviezel, for one, hit the links – to play legendary golfer Bobby Jones in the biopic Bobby Jones, Stroke of Genius (opening Friday). If that seems like an easy role after the enormous challenge of The Passion of the Christ, then perhaps you didn't know that Caviezel is, well, let's say, not a fan of the sport. "I wasn't into golf – I'd rather watch the paint dry, I'd rather watch Martha Stewart," Caviezel said at the movie's New York premiere this week. "I could care less about the Golf Channel or any golf. I like the fast sports. I like basketball, football, baseball – golf just never really interested me." So why star in a movie about a golfer? "I liked the story of Bobby Jones, I like what he stood for," Caviezel said. "He was a guy who was an amateur golfer that beat all the best in the world. ... (The movie is) about sportsmanship, it's about (the idea that) there's more to life than winning championships. I, like most people, wouldn't want to see it if it was just about golf."

NEWS BRIEFS: Lisa Marie to Testify?

SUGGESTED: Following Lisa Marie Presley's televised comments about her 1994-96 marriage to Michael Jackson -- in which she claimed she "saw things I couldn't do anything about" -- Presley could be subpoenaed by prosecutors to testify against her ex in his upcoming trial on charges of child molestation, say legal experts speaking on NBC's "Today" show Tuesday. Under oath, say the lawyers, Presley, 36, could not hide behind the reputed confidentiality agreement she signed when she divorced Jackson.

The Gospel of Mel

On an Italian hilltop where he was staging the Sermon on the Mount, Mel Gibson watched as lightning struck the man playing Jesus in The Passion of the Christ. A pink light engulfed actor Jim Caviezel's body, but miraculously, he was unharmed. Ever since, Gibson has told the story, with a wink, as evidence of a major VIP visitor to the set.

Facing whips and lightning strikes – not to mention a heated religious controversy – Jim Caviezel, 36, has weathered a storm in bringing director Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ to the big screen. The film, due Feb. 25, has the actor (Frequency, High Crimes) carrying his heaviest role yet: Jesus Christ. While some groups have claimed that Passion is anti-Semitic, others have objected to scenes depicting Christ's graphic torture (the movie's been called one of the most violent ever). Caviezel recently talked about the physical and emotional demands of the drama, and why he decided to put his faith in Gibson.
