We’re not sure what’s going on with Kevin Bacon lately, but we definitely like this new comedic side the actor has been showing over the past year. Last week, a 2013 clip featuring the Footloose star in a hilarious British ad where he reprises some of his most famous roles was making the rounds again. This week, Bacon’s starring in a funny public service announcement aimed at reminding millennials about life in the ‘80s. Bacon name-checks Sbarros (which is going bankrupt again), the Rubik’s Cube, Blockbuster Video and the Cold War while reminding those of you who were born after 1985 that you’ll never know the life-changing comfort of a pair of parachute pants. (We're with Bacon – we kinda miss the ‘80s...

Kevin Bacon is pissed, and it's not because the world refuses to recognize the goodness of "Hollow Man." He's sick of millennials misunderstanding/misremembering/ignoring the '80s, a time when dating had something to do with actually meeting people in person and then choosing to meet them again. I don't get it either. But I do get that "She's Having a Baby" is fantastic, so let's listen to Kevin. I want a '90s version of this same video, and it better star Courtney Love. Teach us about "Cracked Rear View" and POGs, Courtney. We need to hear it from you in all of your garbled apathy. »

The Following, Season 2, Episode 8, “The Messenger”
Written by Alexi Hawley
Directed by Marcos Siega
Airs Monday at 9pm (Et) on Fox
The Following has stumbled in the last few weeks, but the eighth episode, “The Messenger”, is great from beginning to end. Everything that works so well in The Following is found here- it’s quick and intriguing, a little campy and over the top, and features some great performances, primarily from Jake Webber and James Purefoy.
The Following very rarely spends time on characters’ emotions. Sure, we see the turmoil they face, we understand their pain, but it’s never really at the forefront of an episode. Mike (Shawn Ashmore) has been one of this season’s most compelling characters and his father’s murder at the end of “Sacrifice” last week changed his trajectory almost indefinitely. “Revenge doesn’t fix anything, I know,” Ryan (Kevin Bacon) warns him »

Kevin Bacon wants you to remember the '80s - and by you, he means millennials. The actor has helpfully put together a video explaining the pre-Twitter days to the unfortunate souls who were born after 1985, including the struggles that people who lived through the '80s had to deal with, like getting turned down for a Sbarro date and wearing parachute pants. (Ok, those were actually pretty comfortable - and will be making a comeback if Justin Bieber has anything to do with it.) Watch Kevin's hilarious video above, and remember what life was like before 1990. »

The biggest names in film, TV, music, and tech are taking over Austin, TX, at the annual South by Southwest festival.

And though Justin Bieber didn't show up with Selena Gomez on his arm, he was also spotted performing at a showcase on Sunday, only a few days after his heated four-and-a-half-hour deposition on Thursday.

Kevin Bacon has a bone to pick with millennials.
"The Following" star is sick of kids who were born after 1985, pretending that they get '80s culture. The self-described two-time Saturn Award nominee has noticed that the awareness of '80s culture and technology has been in a significant decline lately, especially with millennials, and he won't stand for it.
Check out his hilarious PSA above, in which he calls the under-30 crowd out for not truly understanding how hard life was back then. At least he doesn't mention having to walk to school in the snow uphill both ways. »

Kevin Bacon embraces Six Degrees, Dan Gillespie-Sells slams closeted celebrities, a clown car of basset hounds
Out soccer star Anton Hysén has been signed to the Myrtle Beach Mutiny, a National Premiere Soccer League club, which puts them about fourth tier in U.S. soccer. The team says that despite Anton Hysén’s youth, his experience playing in Europe will be invaluable to the team. And yes, that’s an out professional soccer player in the Deep South.

Kevin Bacon went to SXSW to celebrate the 20th »
- Ed Kennedy
Connectivity was the theme in Austin on Saturday: Kevin Bacon made his first trip to the SXSW Film Festival to chat about his career, including the 20th anniversary of the “six degrees” game that links him to every other actor in Hollywood. The star of Footloose has gone from being “horrified” by the pop phenomenon to embracing it for his charity network: SixDegrees.org. Film veteran Bacon is now starring in the second season of his first TV show, Fox’s The Following, which was just renewed for a third season despite this year’s ratings slip. Bacon reflected on his career with Deadline as SXSW’s 2014 edition kicked off: Deadline: Your first role was in Animal House, which the recent passing of Harold Ramis brought back into mind. And that role couldn’t be farther from the “Kevin Bacon” audiences have come to know. Kevin Bacon: Between me and Neidermeyer, »

Amidst a host of comedy renewal announcements from Fox, which has just granted new seasons to Andy Samburg hit Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, and The Mindy Project, was the news that serial killer drama The Following will be returning for a third run in 2015.
The Following's first season wasn't without its problems, but the second run - according to our reviewer at least - has established itself as a grotesquely bonkers and darkly comic exploration of obsession and manipulation. Fingers crossed that its success means Mr Bacon will no longer have to pop up in those excruciating cinema ads. »
Premiering in January 2013, Fox’s serial killer thriller The Following was one of the biggest surprise hits of last year, averaging a quite healthy 2.6 in the key 18-49 demographic and pulling in an average total audience of just under 8 million viewers. Despite generally mixed critical reviews, Fox would have been insane to cancel any scripted show earning those kind of numbers, so it was no surprise when the network quickly renewed the series for a season 2.
Fox’s recent decision to renew The Following once again is a tad more surprising. Season 2 of the Kevin Bacon/James Purefoy-fronted drama has averaged only a 2.1 in the 18-49 demo, and almost two million ...

In an uncharacteristically aggressive move for Fox, the basic cable network announced today that it would be ordering additional seasons of four programs. Included among the lucky few are critically acclaimed comedies New Girl, The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, along with the Kevin Bacon-starring thriller The Following.
Most decisions about renewals and cancellations come later in the spring, more towards the end of March and April, so Fox’s enthusiasm in handing renewals to the four shows speaks volumes about the confidence that the network brass has in them, both creatively and in terms of ratings. It’s worth noting that none of the renewed shows have drawn huge audiences, but all have benefitted tremendously from factoring in DVR viewings.

Fox is off to an early start in the renewal game. Here's a quick look at the comedies that will be returning for another year: Freshman comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, starring Andy Samberg, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews and Andre Braugher, will return for a second season. The Mindy Project, starring Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina, Ed Weeks, Ike Barinholtz, Zoe Jarman, and Beth Grant, has been renewed for a third season. New Girl, starring Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson, Lamorne Morris, and Hannah Simone, will return for a fourth season. As part of its two-year pickup, Glee will enjoy its final season run next year, with Lea Michele and Jane Lynch starring. Hit the jump for some drama renewal news. The Following will live to fight another day as the Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy-starring series has been renewed for a third season. »

It's almost prophetic that the next episode of "The Following" is titled "The Messenger" because along with releasing a pair of clips from the upcoming Episode 2.08, Fox also has a message for fans of the show: You'll be getting a third season!

House Hunting (2013) Review
Directed by: Eric Hurt
Written by: Eric Hurt
Moving can be a real pain. Finding that perfect house can be an even bigger inconvenience. Well, if I ever had any sort of informal education from horror movies, I’ve learned two fundamental truths. There’s gonna be trouble if hooking up with a beautiful woman is effortlessly easy, or if you run across a seemingly sweet real estate property at a ridiculously low price. I’ll go a bit further and say that said real estate property is probably going to be a murder house inhabited by a vengeful spirit with some serious emotional baggage. I would almost bet the farm on it.
