Rihanna Joins ‘Bates Motel’ in Janet Leigh Role

22 July 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rihanna has been cast as Marion Crane – the role made famous by Janet Leigh — in the fifth and final season of A&E’s “Bates Motel.”

“We wanted to thrust the iconic role into a contemporary spotlight and redefine it in a meaningful and exciting new way,” said executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin. “We also heard Rihanna was a fan of the show, and we were huge fans of hers, so it was the perfect collision of creativity and fate.”

This marks the singer’s television debut in a series role.

In the film “Psycho,” which serves as the loose inspiration for the series, Marion Crane checks into the “Bates Motel,” where she has the misfortune of crossing paths with motel owner Norman Bates. Her shower scene — where she gets stabbed to death — has become one of film’s most iconic.

The news comes as little surprise, given the climactic fourth season finale (which saw a pivotal plot twist) and the creatives’ long-standing plan to wrap up the drama on their own terms.

Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin have been vocal about their vision of the series as a five-season run, telling Variety, “From the end of the first season, Carlton and I both had the exact same instinct of five seasons.” Ehrin promised that they’ve long had an endgame in mind, “Emotionally, yes, a very specific one. I will say it’s beautiful.”

Rihanna Is "Psycho" Victim In "Bates Motel"

22 July 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A&E used this year's Comic Con panel for its "Psycho" prequel series "Bates Motel" to make a few announcements, key of which is that next year's ten-episode fifth season will be the show's last.

With the death of Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) towards the end of the current season, and with Norman (Freddie Highmore) now psychologically at the point of the original film, the show is laying the groundwork for events of the original film (albeit in contemporary times) to take place.

Key to that is the just announced casting of singer Rihanna as Marion Crane, the role made famous by Janet Leigh and that infamous shower scene in the Alfred Hitchcock-directed original film. This marks the singer's television debut in a series role, though it's unsure at which point in the season she'll appear.

Emmys 2016: ‘UnReal,’ ‘The Path,’ ‘Mr. Robot’ Look to Break Ground for Their Networks

6 June 2016 1:44 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With so many big dogs in the annual Emmy hunt, what’s a kudos underdog to do?

Several networks not usually associated with Emmy-bait series are entering or re-entering this year’s drama race in a major way. From Lifetime’s “UnReal” to Hulu’s “The Path,” these series tussle to stand out from the pack of the usual heavyweights that dominate the category.

Jason Katims has been at this game for a while, working on a string of critically acclaimed series including “My So-Called Life,” “Relativity,” “Parenthood” and “Friday Night Lights.”

But when it comes to garnering awards attention for a cachet drama like, “The Path,” he jokes, “If I knew the answer to that, I’d have more Emmys.”

Obviously, TV creatives can only put their best work forward and hope for the best — while also making it so unique and special people have to pay attention.
