>The film actor, world-famous for The Passion of the Christ, turns to TV to play a man simply called Six on The Prisoner, AMC’s new version of the British classic.

YOU FILMED IN SOUTH AFRICA. DID YOU MISS YOUR FAMILY?

My family came out three times. I have two kids, and it’s very difficult to be away. They don’t understand why Pop is gone.

HOW DID YOU STAY IN TOUCH?

I sent [my son Bo] a video of me in a shark tank. He got to take that to school and show his friends, and boy, he was the cool kid at school.

DID YOU AND COSTAR IAN MCKELLEN TALK ABOUT PLAYING JESUS AND GANDALF?

When we first met. Those things are in the past. The Prisoner is going to be one of those things they talk about.
