Ben Daniels plays Marcus Keane, one of the title characters in Fox Network’s THE EXORCIST, which has its first-season finale Friday, December 16. When we last saw Marcus in the previous episode, he was in dire straits, and he’s already been through some terrible things. Sent to live at a monastery as a child, Marcus survived a torturous failed exorcism, only to try to help Chicago’s Rance family, and be excommunicated for his efforts. Marcus has teamed up with the less experienced Father Tomas (Alfonso Herrera), but the forces arrayed against them are more powerful than they imagined. Daniels, a […]Read On »

Hannah Kasulka plays the possessed Casey Rance on Fox Network’s THE EXORCIST. The young actress from Georgia has also played a fairy on TRUE BLOOD, appeared in the revenge thriller PRANK and stars as a young witch in the short film CLARA. (Among her other credits is an arc on THE FOSTERS.) So it’s a bit surprising to learn that Kasulka is actually scared of horror movies and TV. At the time of this interview, she hadn’t even seen the original 1973 EXORCIST feature film. HANNAH KASULKA: Having heard about the movie and what we’re doing, it’s very different. But […]Read On »

We at ASSIGNMENT X know that absolutely nothing fictional can match this year’s election cycle for sheer horror. However, we’ve done our best to find an interview about a reasonably scary show to fit the national mood. In Fox Network’s Friday-night series THE EXORCIST, Alan Ruck plays Henry Rance. Henry sustained brain damage in a car accident, but he’s got much bigger problems. Casey (Hannah Kasulka), one of Henry’s two teenaged daughters, is demonically possessed. Meanwhile, Henry’s devoted and devout wife Angela (Geena Davis) turns out to have been keeping quite a secret. In other words, Henry is coping with […]Read On »

Fox Network’s new Friday-night series THE EXORCIST is based on William Peter Blatty’s best-selling novel, which was adapted into the hit 1973 feature film.

Her priest, Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Hereira), finds evidence of the case from forty years ago (covered in the book and the film), and approaches exorcist Father Marcus Keane (Ben Daniels) for help. Executive producer Jeremy Slater, writer of THE LAZARUS EFFECT, developed THE EXORCIST for television. He talks about revisiting familiar demons during […]Read On »

Rupert Wyatt is primarily known as a feature film director for THE ESCAPIST, THE GAMBLER and the franchise reboot RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. However, when he read Jeremy Slater’s pilot script for Fox Network’s new series THE EXORCIST, the British filmmaker says it grabbed him. Indeed, Wyatt was so impressed that he not only directed the pilot, but also became one of THE EXORCIST’s executive producers. In the series THE EXORCIST, forty years have passed since the events that we saw in the 1973 film, based on William Peter Blatty’s novel (we see a news clipping that […]Read On »

McLaughlin based on the book by Robin Cook Director: Mikael Salomon Original Telecast: August 5, 2012 Network: A&E If the first night of the two-part, four-hour COMA miniseries wasn’t enough torture, A&E delivers a second half that’s more excruciating as the first. Why, oh, why did this suck so bad? Here’s an example of how COMA fails miserably: whenever something interesting or suspenseful happens, suddenly the characters start looking at charts and talking ominous about what’s on the page. Or in other […]Read On »

McLaughlin based on the book by Robin Cook Director: Mikael Salomon Network: A&E Original Telecast: August 3, 2012 When you name your mini-series COMA, you better deliver a suspenseful, taut thriller, otherwise, puns from journalists reviewing it will be aplenty. So yes, here’s one coming now – COMA puts you to sleep. Yes, the first two hours of this mini-series airing on A&E is a complete bore. The script is sluggish, the scenarios ridiculous and the pay-off (which finally happens during the […]Read On »
