Brianne Howey is the first cast in Fox’s small screen adaptation of William Blatty’s classic 1971 novel “The Exorcist.” Directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and written by Jeremy Slater (Lazarus Effect), the pilot introduces “two very different men” fighting to save a family from demonic possession.

Howey plays Charlotte, a young ballet dancer whose dreams of making it are shattered after a terrible accident. Her depression and anti social behavior becomes so extreme her mother believes she is possessed by demonic forces.

Howey first caught moviegoers’ attention in the comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2, but horror fans will recognize her as Melanie Dorkus, the once stunning president of a prestigious sorority burnt to a crisp and forced to resign for her fugliness on Ryan Murphy’s darkly comedic series “Scream Queens.”
