New THE FOLLOWING Promo Video Looks At Kevin Bacon And James Purefoy’s Characters
“He has created a web of serial kills, and he has a big, big plan that only he knows,” Purefoy says of his character, Joe Carroll. “I’ve never seen a show like this on primetime. It gets under your skin in a deep and disturbing way.” “It is a f—in’ scary show,” Kevin Bacon says.It sounds eery and intriguing, especially the comments about Hardy and Carroll. I must admit, the concept of ‘damaged goods’ person is appealing to me, especially when they are given the chance for redemption. As for Carroll, the thought of him helping people ‘tap into their inner serial killer’ is truly disturbing, but it could make for some really exciting television from a drama perspective. There are certainly places to go with a character like that, though I sometimes wonder if we really need so much psycho-ish series in addition to real life… The Following premieres Monday, January 21st, 2013 on Fox.
