It's been double trouble for Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and the FBI on The Following, thanks to the terrifying twins Mark and Luke (both played by Sam Underwood). But despite what we've learned so far about the diabolical duo, viewers shouldn't assume that Luke is the one who's calling all the shots, according to Underwood.
"On the surface, [Luke is the leader], yes," Underwood tells TVGuide.com. "But Mark also has a huge amount of power over Luke. You see that in the first episode when Luke is about to go all crazy on Carlos. Just before he's about to kill him, Mark kind of reins him in. ... He has the ability to be able to do that with Luke because of their relationship. Luke is the front-man of the band. He's the Paul McCartney. But Mark is the Ringo Starr. He's there keeping it all together, even though he's not at the very front."
Slowly but surely, Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) is closing in on Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) on Fox's The Following. But that doesn't mean he won't face more than a few obstacles on the way to confronting his nemesis.
Kevin Bacon, Connie Nielsen
The Following blindsided viewers with a game-changing twist last week, exposing Lily Gray (Connie Nielsen), who had been positioned as a new love interest for Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), as a devotee of Ryan's nemesis, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy).
The Following hit viewers with a major twist last week, revealing that Lily (Connie Nielsen) isn't as innocent as she seemed.
Shocked by the truth about his latest love interest, Ryan (Kevin Bacon) sits down with his niece Max (Jessica Stroup) to figure out why Lily played the victim and what to do next.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
News of Philip Seymour Hoffman's sudden death Sunday shook the film world, and many of the actor's colleagues, friends and co-stars took to Twitter to express their grief.
Kevin Bacon, Shawn Ashmore
Though The Following's second season doesn't officially get underway until Monday, Jan. 27, Fox will air a special preview episode after the NFC championship game on Sunday, which will catch viewers up on what's happened in the year since the (allegedly) fatal showdown between Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and Joe Carroll (James Purefoy).
Three episodes are never enough to satisfy our appetite for the dazzling BBC/Masterpiece Mystery! version of Sherlock, which thanks to its stars' busy movie careers, made us wait two long years for the latest trilogy of 90-minute delights. Was it worth the wait? The answer is (to borrow the title of TV's other enjoyable contemporary Holmes series) elementary: Did you ever doubt it?
"You love it, being Sherlock Holmes," reaffirms the long-suffering Dr. John Watson (the delightful Martin Freeman) to his exasperating mate (an electrifying Benedict Cumberbatch), who returns to the spotlight in Sunday's playfully...
Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy are back as television's grisliest odd couple — and we can hardly mask our excitement. "It gets a little more demented," promises executive producer Kevin Williamson of The Following's unsettling second act for Bacon's former FBI agent Ryan Hardy and the erudite literature professor—turned—cult leader Joe Carroll, played with cheeky relish by Purefoy. Just don't expect The Following to hew to the same cops-and-psychos course it ran during its first season. It's still a scare-fest that excels at getting under your skin, but "we're changing the feel and the texture of the show," Williamson says. "We want to make sure that you're not watching the same old thing." (The second season premieres Sunday, Jan. 19 after the NFC Championship game on Fox, then moves to its regular timeslot, Mondays at 9/8c, on Jan. 27.)
James Purefoy, Kevin Bacon
When The Following returns for its second season (Monday, Jan. 27, 9/8c on Fox), a quick scene establishes the fate of Claire (Natalie Zea), and then the show jumps ahead a year to show us a very different Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). Although the tortured FBI consultant has pieced himself back together after the apparent death of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), not all is right with the world. Obviously...
Tina Fey, Amy Poehler
Memo to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: Please have Tina Fey and Amy Poehlerhost the Golden Globes forever. (For that matter, the Academy should take note as well.) The former Saturday Night Live colleagues, hosting the Globes for the second year in a row, got the evening off to a rollicking start with an opening monologue that lampooned everyone fromTom Hanks to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and kept the night on track with a couple of skits and one rock star makeout session.
