This is the second episode of our two-part Exorcist episode.
We will continue our look at The Exorcist (the book by William Peter Blatty and the film by William Friedkin).
We will do our Dream Cast and Schrödinger’s Cast for the 1973 film. We will look at six key characters in the movie, and pick the actor/actress that would have best fit that role, and also an outside-the-box cast:
Regan MacNeil | Linda Blair
Chris MacNeil | Ellen Burstyn
Father Damien Karras | Jason Miller
Father Lankester Merrin | Max von Sydow
Lt. William Kinderman | Lee J. Cobb
Burke Dennings | Jack Macgowran
Troy Harkin and David Clink will continue to look at the book and the movie, and talk about the impact that they have had.
