Don't hate me because I met Jim Caviezel

I mean, just because YOU didn't get to meet him...hey, I'm just going on with you. I had the priveledge of meeting this nice gentleman last night as he spoke at my church, believe it or not. He spoke about stepping up and being a man. His career got off the fast track when he did the role of Jesus in Passion of The Christ.

This is Jim in Deja Vu.

As our Lord Jesus in Passion of The Christ. Hollywood pretty much blackballed him from top roles. I read where he was passed up by Bryan Singer for Cyclopes in X-Men after he played Jesus. Make no mistake, he is a true believer and stands for Christ.

And as the Count of Monte Cristo. I have always thought he was great, but after I looked into his eyes and shook his hand, I have a new perspective. By the way, his eyes? They're green, not brown. And I thanked him for doing Passion and told him I loved him in Count of Monte Cristo. Okay, so I got a little star-struck. But he's the first reknown actor I've ever met.
His latest project is a voicing gig on The Word of Promise.

Okay I'm jealous. I would not have been able to make complete sentences. What a good looking guy!

He is good looking and although I couldn't watch The Passion because I am a big weenie and hate being a blubbering heap in public, I do admire him for playing our Lord. And this deal of Hollywood blackballing him. He should wear that as a badge of honor. What a bunch of dysfunctional, hedonistic, self-absorbed, egotistical, screwed up bunch of people! And that's the more polite words I use to describe the lot of them. And by the way, did you ever hear from Fruit Jar Nicky? She disappeared off the face of the earth! I am worried about her.
