İsa) rolünü kabul ettikten kısa bir süre sonra yaptığı açıklamada; isminin baş harflerinin Hz İsa'nınkiyle aynı olduğunu (J.C.) ve Jim'de film çekilirken 33 yaşında olduğunu (çoğu tarihçi ve dini bilginin inandığına göre Hz İsa 33 yaşındayken öldürülmüştü) , söylemişti. Bir röportajında şöyle demişti; "Annem, 0 İrlandali ve ailemde aktörlüğü hep 'dalkavukluk' olarak görüyorduk"

As a youngster, Jim was described as being "very intense." His two main interests growing up were sports and religion.

In 1984, he went to Mount Vernon High School but transferred to O'Dea High School after two years.

James Caviezel injured in motorcycle accident
LEAVENWORTH, Wash. -- The Washington State Patrol says actor James Caviezel suffered minor injuries when a man hurled a bicycle into the path of his motorcycle about 14 miles southeast of Leavenworth.
Caviezel, who portrayed Jesus in Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ," was injured Thursday afternoon. Trooper Rich Magnussen says the actor was taken to Cascade Medical Center in this northcentral Washington city for treatment of cuts and bruises.
Magnussen says the 40-year-old Caviezel, of Woodland Hills, Calif., was wearing a helmet, and adds, "it could have been a lot worse." The trooper says he doesn't know why the actor was in the Leavenworth area.
Caviezel was born in Mount Vernon, Wash.
There was no indication why the man tossed the bike into the path of Caviezel's 2006 Harley Davidson but Magnussen says mental issues may be involved. Troopers plan to forward their investigation to the Chelan County prosecutor's office for possible charges against a 42-year-old Wenatchee man.
