According to The Hollywood Reporter, Caviezel will take one of the lead roles in "Person of Interest."
The pilot focuses on a former intelligence officer (Caviezel) who is presumed dead, but resurrects himself as a crimefighter, teaming up with an eccentric billionaire (Michael Emerson). It's like a procedural drama for people who wish Batman were two people instead of one.
The Warner Brothers TV pilot also features Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson.
Although he's best known for features like "The Passion of the Christ" and "Frequency," Caviezel starred in AMC's reinterpretation of "The Prisoner" and, according to The IMDB, has also appeared on episodes of "The Wonder Years" and "Murder, She Wrote."
