It has been more that a decade since Jim Caviezel played Jesus in the "Passion of the Christ." This spring, he'll play St. Luke in another major religious film, "Paul, the Apostle of Christ," opening in theaters on March 28.
Unlike the "Passion," Caviezel will not be the main actor in the film: James Faulkner, star of HBO's "Game of Thrones," will portray Paul.
"James Faulkner is to Paul as Christopher Reeve is to Superman. … This guy was born to play Paul. When he was walking around, it was in his behavior. You couldn't find someone else who organically nails it like this," Caviezel recently told USA Today.
The movie follows St. Paul in the last days of his life, facing Roman imprisonment for preaching Christianity while waiting execution under Emperor Nero. Luke, a physician, is able to visit his fellow Christian in jail.
