!!This actor's work provides examples of:
%%Please do not add any tropes about his personal life. This page is for his works.
* ButIPlayOneOnTV: In case you were wondering, no, he is not actually Jesus; he just played him in a movie. However, he happily admits to actually being Film/TheCountOfMonteCristo and [[Series/PersonOfInterest John Reese]].
* CareerResurrection: His role on ''Series/PersonOfInterest'' is widely regarded as this.
* CreatorBacklash: [[DownplayedTrope Somewhat]]. He is ''not'' keen with ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist'', but not to the point where he regrets working on it. This was mainly due to the struggles he went through while filming (getting struck by lightning, accidentally being scourged, having his shoulder dislocated, and suffering from pneumonia and hypothermia), as well as going hand to hand with Creator/MelGibson.
* IcyBlueEyes: His characters are frequently described as being able to stare into your soul.
