The hunky actor - who movingly portrayed JESUS in Mel Gibson's controversial epic - is said to be very close to an agreement with studio Warner BROS. despite his agent's recent insistence the part had not yet been offered to him.
However, according to respected comic book author MARK MILLER, Caviezel's participation is all but guaranteed.
He writes, "You remember I told you to relax about 'Superman?' That a very, very trusted and experienced director we'd all love was coming over? That everything would be fine? Well, my same good buddy has informed me that Jim Caviezel is officially the new man of
steel and what a perfect choice he is. Expect an announcement shortly."01/09/2004 13:27
