- Colin O'Donoghue in the lead role the young priest
- Anthony Hopkins as a mentor style character, an unorthodox priest and expert in exorcisms

I don't know much about the lead actor Colin O'Donoghue, but knowing that Antony Hopkins plays the role of his mentor in the film, I definitely want to watch this horror movie: sign me up for the Rite!
