Jason Miller played Father Karras in The Exorcist. He was the father of actors Jason Patric (by first wife Linda Gleason, daughter of Jackie Gleason) and Joshua John Miller (by second wife Susan Bernard). On May 13, 2001, Miller died of a heart attack at Farley's Eatery and Pub in Scranton, Pennsylvania, at the age of 62. In 2004, actor Paul Sorvino, a longtime friend of Miller and a cast member of the first film version of That Championship Season, was commissioned by the city of Scranton to create a bronze bust of the late playwright and actor. The statue was unveiled in December 2008. In March 2011, the first Broadway revival of That Championship Season opened. The cast comprised Brian Cox, Kiefer Sutherland, Jim Gaffigan, and Miller's elder son, actor Jason Patric. The urn containing Miller's ashes was placed on the set by his son, who played the role Miller had based on himself.
