Linney Recruits Broadway Co-Star

Movie star LAURA LINNEY was so impressed with the talents of aspiring actress JENNIFER CARPENTER she persuaded producers to cast her in the title role of haunting thriller THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE.

The MYSTIC RIVER star, who also stars in the film, first worked with the 25-year-old actress on Broadway's THE CRUCIBLE - and was determined to fast-track her Hollywood career upon discovering her movie potential.

According to gossip website Pagesix.com Linney gushes, "She is just absolutely the most astonishing and versatile young actress. You have to be really trained vocally to be able to scream like that for 15 hours a day on a film set."
