The Power of Geena Compels Me

.
To be honest until this headline today arrived I'd been actively avoiding news about an Exorcist TV series because goddman (excuse me, Pazuzu-damn) does that sound silly. But now they've gone and cast Geena Davis in it, and I have to pay attention! Deadline has the news, and I have to share this bit:

"Davis will play Angela Rance. Naturally beautiful, regal and proud but weighed down by stress, Angela does everything she can to stay positive and keep her faith even though her family is currently struggling. She can’t help but think, however, if perhaps her nightmares about a demon are a sign of what’s wrong."

The bolded-out portion is my emphasis, because doesn't that character description remind you of that Twitter account that tweets out how female characters are introduced in scripts? I am dying to see Alec Baldwin, her Beetlejuice co-star, tackle a role described first and foremost as "NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL" aren't you? Aaaanyway we were just bitching about wanting nay needing some Davis back in our lives, so they got us hooked, the bastards.

Excellent catch anon, I somehow skimmed right over his name in all my Geena-thusiasm.
