Fox Grabs Flesh and Bone Star for The Exorcist Reboot

Who will he play?

Megan Vick

Flesh and Bonestar Ben Daniels and Sense 8's Alfonso Herrera are grabbing their rosaries and holy water and heading to Fox. TVLine reports the two men will lead the network's The Exorcist reboot.

Daniels will play Father Marcus, described as "the intense holy warrior carrying out an occupation that the church no longer acknowledges in public." In contrast, Herrera will play Father Thomas, "the warm, selfless and compassionate leader of a small but hearty little church."

The series is a modernized adaptation of William Blatty's 1971 film that went on to inspire the horror classic The Exorcist two years later. Jeremy Slater is writing the script for the pilot.

Daniels and Herrera join previously announced cast members Hannah Kasulka (The Fosters) and Scream Queens' Brianne Howey
