Caviezel, best known for his role as Jesus in Mel Gibson’s “Passion of the Christ,” had an exceptional basketball career in college. The 6-foot, 2-inch actor played ball at Bellevue Community College, setting his sights on a future in the NBA. Unfortunately, a foot injury in his second year at school quickly put an end to his dream. He transferred to the University of Washington, switched his focus to acting, and the rest is history. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
