The Online Sun and Ananova report that Mel Gibson used a robot Christ in his recent movie, Passion of the Christ. The £220,000 robot was used during the crucifixion scenes because the weather was too cold for actor Jim Caviezel. According to another site, the animatronic Christ was operated by Mel Gibson himself. The robot was created by Keith Vanderlaan's Captive Audience Productions. In addition to realistic head movements, the robot also bleeds and appears to breathe. This could give a whole new meaning to the phrase, "I'll be back".
