Jason Miller (1939-2001) was an American actor/playwright who was launched into stardom in 1973 when he received the Pulitzer Prize for his play That Championship Season. That same year he was offered the role of the troubled priest in William Friedkin’s horror film “The Exorcist”; for that performance (see accompanying photo) he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Other plays: Nobody Hears a Broken Drum (1970), Barrymore’s Ghost (2000), and our current podcast, included in Three One-Act Plays. He was the father of actor Jason Patric by first wife Linda Gleason, daughter of Jackie Gleason. At age 62, Miller died of a heart attack in his home town, Scranton, PA. Close friend actor Paul Sorvino was commissioned by the city to create a bust of Miller to honor him.
