Before They Were Stars: Jim Caviezel as a Pilot in “The Rock”

Yesterday, Gill posted up the Michael Bay action classic, The Rock, in its entirety and looking back at the cast list, I was surprised to discover it contains a “Before They Were Stars” moment. Jim Caviezel has a small role as one of the F/A-18 pilots who is ordered to drop bombs on Alcatraz Island near the end, but of course, you would never recognize him since he’s wearing a mask the entire time (you can catch a VERY brief glimpse of his face at the 0:06 mark). It must be a bittersweet feeling for an aspiring actor to get a role like this: you’ve earned the distinction of being cast in a major Hollywood production, but no one will be able to see your face.
