We heard he was available, and was a nominal fan of SF, and sent him the
script. He enjoyed the script, particularly liking what it said about the soul
(he's a strong and vocal catholic), and I think he saw in it something he
wanted to be associated with.

We'd initially approached him about playing the scientist, but when he got the
script he much preferred the soul hunter material, and went for that, even
though it would mean considerable prosthetics work.
