Saint Bernard graduate in movie
A Saint Bernard Prep graduate is set to hit the big screen in theatres everywhere this weekend. John Wright, Jr. (PS ’45-JC48) of Birmingham, Alabama landed a supporting role in an Eli Roth horror film, "The Last Exorcism" to be released in theatres by Lionsgate on August 27. Wright plays the father of the lead character, Patrick Fabian, who both play evangelical preachers.
In a facebook wall post at facebook.com/stbernardprep Wright sends a friendly warning that even though the movie is rated PG-13 it has scary scenes, but I am the grey-haired actor who plays the lead actor’s father.
Wright said, “When I go, I’ll most likely close my eyes for the scary scenes!”
