'Jumper' special effects challenged actor

Obviously, Hayden Christensen is digitally inserted on top of the Sphinx in "Jumper," but not because no one tried to get him up there for real.Christensen says the producer tried to negotiate for the right to allow him to be airlifted by helicopter and lowered down onto the Sphnix.

That didn't work out. But the producer did get permission to film some scenes below the Coliseum in Rome.

The Coliseum was shut down for a few days so Christensen could film scenes "where they used to keep the gladiators and the lions."
