A previous article of ours featured defrocked anchorman #15 FCIL Brian Williams, who has since been suspended by NBC for 6 months due to his blatant lies regarding his time spent in Iraq. Now, a flurry of accusations are being made against him, from his curious story of saving a puppy from a burning building years ago to claims of seeing dead bodies floating in the water during Hurricane Katrina.
lol, sorry. We just have to laugh at the puppy story.
At any rate, there is another well-known #15 FCIL who is, by all accounts, as upstanding as they come, and his name is Jim Caviezel. Yes, the actor currently starring in the “Person of Interest” TV series, now in its 4th season, who also starred in the recent movie, “When The Game Stands Tall” as Bob Ladouceur, the high school football coach who from 1992 to 2004 guided his team to 12-consecutive undefeated seasons, setting a national winning streak record for high school football of 151 consecutive wins. Of course, Caveziel is best known for playing Jesus in “The Passion of the Christ.”
To be sure, we can’t think of one other current well-known male #15 actor (there have been a number of females, including Courtney Cox, Demi Moore, Lucille Ball and Jane Seymour). There were a few gents in the past, including Charlton Heston and Ronald Reagan, but to find a #15 man in the media nowadays is slim to none. Remember, they are dominant Inanimates, not Conceptuals, which makes it challenging for them to leave the world of excessive thinking, much less shoot from the hip while improvising on screen. Also, as Left brainers, they despise chaos and too much flexibility. Hollywood is rife with it. Additionally, FCILs do not like putting themselves under another’s control. Even if they sink, #15s prefer captaining their own ship.
You’ll notice that while Caviezel has played a number of roles, nearly all of them are serious. He certainly is not one for comedy, and his role as John Reese in “Person Of Interest” is no exception. The show is quintessential Caviezel … sober, serious, tough and tactical. It’s also humorous to read about Jim’s childhood. “As a youngster, Jim was described as being ‘very intense’. His two main interests growing up were sports and religion. He was athletically gifted on the basketball court and dreamed of someday playing in the N.B.A.” Regarding basketball, Jim was once thumped in Junior High for being too cocky. Go figure!
It also appears Caveziel did a bit of Brian Williams-like fibbing when he “won a very small role as a foreign airline clerk after he told casting agents that he was a recent Italian immigrant.” Still, Caveziel remained strong to his Catholic faith, refusing to do love scenes and such. His co-star Elizabeth Mitchell who played his mother in “Frequency” said about him, “Jim is the perfect son, if I had a son like him I would be a very proud mother.”
And how’s this for conviction?
“Jim told an interviewer that he had been challenged by a friend who was not pro-life to live up to his professed pro-life convictions and adopt a disabled child. The friend told Caviezel that if he did that, then he would change to the pro-life position. When Caviezel and his wife, Kerri, went to China to adopt not one, but eventually two orphans suffering from brain tumors, the friend reneged on the deal. Caviezel, however said, ‘It didn’t matter to me because the joy that we had from (Bo) – he’s like our own.'”
All to say, there’s still yet hope for the #15 in Hollyweird. That is, of course, if they can stand the weirdness.
