An Actor is Inexplicably Returning for ‘The Last Exorcism 2′

Given the nature of the film, and the nature of a sequel that makes no sense given its title, the news that one of the actors from The Last Exorcism is coming back for the next installment could be considered spoiler-ish, so proceed with caution.

The first film was a mixed bag that erred on the good side with strong performances from Patrick Fabian (who finally broke out of his Saved By the Bell: The College Years pigeonhole), the newcomer Ashley Bell, Iris Bahr, Tony Bentley as a calm-headed pastor, and Caleb Landry Jones and Louis Herthum in hard-wrought roles as the only family of the affected girl.

The strangeness of making The Next Last Exorcism aside, especially considering the ending, Bloody Disgusting is reporting that (at least) one of these actors will be back.

That actor is Ashely Bell, who was hellacious as the young woman stricken by the devil. It’s unclear what sort of role she’ll play in the second film, or if it will only be in the introductory, connective part, but at the very least, it’s good to see them bringing back the best part of the first flick. Now to see if they get crazy and bring Fabian back. That would take brass balls.
