The Following (FOX, Michael Lavine)The Following, one of this season’s most anticipated shows, centers on a former FBI agent (Kevin Bacon) who enters into a deadly cat and mouse game with a serial killer (James Purefoy).

For Bacon, getting involved with The Following was a a no brainer.   “I read this script and I couldn’t put it down,” said the actor about the show, which is created by Kevin Williamson. “Such a page-turner.  So many times when I went, Oh wow, I did not see that coming” and I could see that Kevin Williamson was just having such a great time kind of creating this world and these characters.  And I also saw a part that had the three things that I was looking for.  One was the character be heroic.  Two is that, if he’s going to be heroic, he has to be damaged, complicated, there have to be layers to that heroism.  And the third thing was that the stakes have to be about life and death.”
