Unveiled in Scranton’s Courthouse Square in March this year was a bronze bust of play write and actor Jason Miller – you know him as Father Karras in The Exorcist. He was a Pulitzer Prize winner for his play That Championship Season, which later became a motion picture Miller himself directed in 1982.
The bust was sculpted by Jason’s long-time friend and actor Paul Sorvino, who was present at the unveiling along with Jason’s wife Dana.
Jason Miller passed away unexpectedly in May 2001. Part of his ashes were incorporated with the statue.
