I watched The Exorcism of Emily Rose for about the 1,2,3,4,5,6th time yesterday (if you've seen the movie you probably get that joke). It got pretty much uniformly kicked in the luggage by most critics, but I really enjoy it. Jennifer Carpenter (who is most appropriately described in the New Jersey vernacular as: "wicked hot") gave a really brilliant performance. And that got me thinking: "Self," (I always begin internal dialogues by directly posing the question to myself) "Who would I cast if I were making an exorcism film?" This is what I came up with so far:
The Exorcist: Mr. T How awesome would it be to watch Mr. T in a priest outfit, yelling "Hey demons! You better get yo self outta there! This is God's house, fool!"
The Possessed Woman: Courtney Love That one's pretty self-explanatory. "Okay, we're about to start the possession scene, Ms. Love. So, uh, oh hey! I found this hypodermic needle and this little balloon - looks like it's filled with sand or something - on my way here this morning. Not sure who it belongs to . . . would you mind holding on to it for just a minute while I go ask around? Thanks."
Boyfriend: Samuel Jackson He's a little old for this role, but it's just too tempting to pass him up. "I am tired of these mothafuckin demons in my mothafuckin girlfriend!"
Father: Doc Brown "What? My daughter's been possessed by the devil? Great Scott!"
And that's about as far as I got before I had to leave to get my "glaucoma" prescription filled. Who would you cast for what roll, and why?
