Jim Caviezel: “I Look for Redeemable Stories”

Yesterday, EWTN’s World Over Live with Raymond Arroyo aired an interview with “Person of Interest” star Jim Caviezel about his work on the hit series, what he thinks about his character John Reese, how his faith influences the characters he chooses, and why he sees high school football coach Bob Ladouceur, who he plays in the upcoming film “When the Game Stands Tall,” as a positive role model.

Specifically, Caviezel says that he likes playing characters that are redeemable – and that he sees John Reese as “a sinner trying to find his way back.”

This is an excellent interview by Arroyo, who even gets Caviezel to flat-out laugh – something we “Person of Interest” fans never see him doing as John Reese. It’s worth your 17 minutes to get to know the man behind the popular character.
