AMC Remakes "The Prisoner" as a Miniseries, Starring Jim Caviezel

I never liked the show (never "got" it, really), but I know it has a cult following.

I was/am a fan of Patrick McGoohan's, though -- mostly from his recurring roles as villains in Columbo, and as Longshanks in Braveheart. McGoohan had one of the icily-brilliant demeanors of any actor, eveh, and I'm thinking Jim Caviezel is nothing like that at all. Not only is he not chilly, he's warm and gooey and emotive. (At least he was in Passion of the Christ and criminally underrated Frequency.)

There's some actor out there I think who has that ice-blood sort of demeanor, but it's on the tip of my tongue, can't think of him now.

A bit more movie stuff: Hellboy's promoting his new movie by, um, appearing on Inside the Actor's Studio with James Lipton. At least for this thirty seconds of ad:
