NYCC 2012: ‘The Following’ Cast Interview

What if one charismatic serial killer were able to harness all of the crazy of the 300 active serial killers in the United States to do his bidding? That’s the premise of the upcoming Fox mid-season replacement, “The Following”, starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Natalie Zea, Annie Parisse, and Shawn Ashmore. The actors stopped by the MTV Geek booth during New York Comic-Con to talk with our host Steven Grant about the upcoming series in this two-part video.

In this chat, the cast digs deeper into the premise of the over-the-top thriller, which features Purefoy an English literature expert, Poe fanatic, and imprisoned serial killer who uses his time in lockup to recruit other like-minded psychopaths to wreak havoc around the country. Kevin Bacon plays the FBI special agent who took him down the first time, but might not be up to the challenge that’s before him now.

Plus, Steven digs deeper into the X-Men connection between two of the actors from the show.
