Person of Interest’s Jim Caviezel – When The Game Stands Tall

 

Any fan of Person of Interest actor Jim Caviezel knows about his starring role in the movie, When The Game Stands Tall. Caviezel portrays the legendary coach Bob Ladouceur who coached the  De La Salle High School Spartans to a 151-game winning streak that broke all records for any American sport.    

 

The movie though is about what happens to the team and the coach after the winning streak was ended according to Etan Anterton on FIRSTSHOWING.NET. Watching the trailer the movie is about how members of the team and the coach himself handle the adversity after the team loses.  From the preview of the movie the coach suffers a heart attack and one of the boys loses his life I believe.     

 

It is quite a change from Mr. Caviezel’s role in his last big movie release,  Escape Plan, as Warden Hobbs. I can’t say the warden was an evil man but kindness was not one one of the character’s qualities. To see the actor as a high school coach who is a caring and motivational force in young men’s lives is about as different as night and day from Warden Hobbs. Can’t wait to see Caviezel shine as the coach.    

 

I am also excited to see the movie since it’s showing in August and in the long summer hiatus for Person of Interest. I have loved the three years of James Caviezel and Mr. Reese but three months of repeats will have me hungry for something new and different.  

 

When the Game Stands Tall is directed by Thomas Carter (Coach Carter, Save the Last Dance) and written by Scott Marshall (The Score, Men of Honor) based on the book of the same name. The film is inspired by a true story, detailing the journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel), who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport. Laura Dern, Michael Chiklis and Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games) also star in the film which Sony Pictures releases in theaters late this summer on August 22nd.
