The Tomb has found Sly and Arnie's main antagonist

Feb. 20, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Jim CaviezelPG-13 rating or no, I have to say that either way I'm not particularly opinionated about THE EXPENDABLES 2.  But THE TOMB? I can tell you right now that if THE TOMB ends up fulfilling even merely most of it's promise I shall be well satisfied.

With casting revealed by producer Mark Canton (300, IMMORTALS) on The Mathew Aaron show, any questions as to whether they'd find a good enough actor to counter Stallone and Schwarzennegger can now be quelled.  In a great bit of casting, "[Jim] Caviezel will be playing the role of the Warden of the prison in which Schwarzenegger & Stallone attempt to escape from."  Now the question is, how malevolent will his character be? Is this a "Prisoner"/ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ - type situation? And which would you rather see, the evil or the man just trying to do his job?

Caviezel currently stars in Jonathan Nolan's CBS drama "Person Of Interest."  You can listen to the rest of the interview here.   

Plot recap: THE TOMB follows Ray Breslin (Stallone) who is the world’s foremost authority on structural security. He’s analyzed every high security prison and has gained a vast array of survival skills. But all Ray’s ingenuity and knowledge are about to be put to work in the most challenging test he's ever faced: escaping from the master prison of his own design. 

Extra Tidbit: So let me get this straight: we've got Dutch and Rambo Balboa trying escape from prison, with Jesus as their warden. Damn, I kind of really wish that was the movie's plot instead.

Re: Tidbit

If Hollywood had the balls for a Meta film like that, I'd pay to go see it. As it is, though, that's the kind of plot reserved for Grindhouse mash-ups with cut-rate budgets and F-list no names.

So, wait. I thought the main antagonist would be whoever set up Stallone's character. Is that who Caviezel is playing or is he playing the warden? Or are they the same person?

Well the article says he is playing the role of the warden but as far as the warden being the one who set him up, ?? guess we will have to wait and see.

Great news!!! Caviezel is a very underrated actor, luckily he's finding the spotlight in the awesome Person of Interest as a very batman-ish type of badass.

This keeps getting better and better..

If Sly needs an escape plan all he needs to do is watch himself in Tango & Cash.

Come to think of it, Jim Caviezel was the new Prisoner in the remake series of "The Prisoner". Now he's a warden. Role Reversal!
