News: Actors with Their Own Bands
The 56-year-old actor set the Internet ablaze with the recreation of his iconic dance scene from Footloose on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The original idea, Bacon admitted, was much simpler than what came to be.
"I actually pitched to Fallon the idea of doing something around Footloose," Bacon told Et. "I thought it would be something much simpler, like I would teach Fallon how to do a small step or something. They took it with their amazing machine over there and spun it into this really complicated thing."
Today, the video has more than 16 million views on YouTube.
While his dance moves remain the same, there have been changes in the Golden Globe winner's life. Currently, he's shooting »
Bacon’s weary FBI man locks horns with James Purefoy’s charismatic, serial-killing cult leader in this gruesome thriller
One minute in and five people have died. And that’s mild compared to what then unfolds in the course of two series. This isn’t too surprising really, given that The Following was created by Kevin Williamson, writer of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. The result is a refreshingly unsubtle stab-a-thon, with twists aplenty and heaps of gratuitous violence.
Ex-fbi agent Ryan Hardy, played with enjoyable weariness by Kevin Bacon, is desperately trying to capture the escaped serial killer, Joe Carroll, and return him to prison. But it quickly becomes clear that Carroll is not your ordinary killer. While incarcerated, he uses his Hannibal Lecter-like charisma to assemble like-minded maniacs into a cult, whose purpose is to create mayhem on the outside by slicing up as many innocent people as possible. »

Meet The Following's "new face of evil." Michael Ealy (Almost Human, The Good Wife) has been cast as as the new big bad in season three of the horror thriller. He'll play "a brilliant, chameleon-like killer who will push Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) to the brink." Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) was the show's main antagonist for the first two seasons, but the character was arrested in the season two finale. The Following will re-join Fox's lineup next year, likely in January. »

I know I'm a day late with this V For Vendetta fun facts list since the 5th of November was yesterday, but better late than never! This was such an amazing film, and it's one of my favorite from the Wachowskis, who wrote and produced it. They were such big fans of the graphic novel, that they actually had a script written for the movie before they started developing The Matrix. This is also one of those flicks that I never get tired of watching. It just has such a great and engulfing story that gives the audience food for thought. There are a ton of underlying meanings in the story. I've been enjoying doing these fun facts lists because I always tend to learn something new about a film, and that is true with V For Vendetta as well. So here are ten fun facts that you may or »

With The Following showrunner Kevin Williamson leaving after last season to head up his new CBS series, Stalker, the show upped writers Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley to executive producers alongside director Marcos Siega, the series’ long-time on-set executive producer. While some shows suffer when a new leader takes control, The Following wrapped up the long running storyline of the first two seasons in the recent finale, which makes season three able to start anew. Of course the show will still be dealing with the ramifications of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), but the new showrunners can take the keys knowing they can plot their own course. Last weekend at New York Comic-Con, I was able to participate in a roundtable interview with Shawn Ashmore where he talked about The Following season 3. He discussed how the first episode will reveal the mysterious character in the last scene of season 2, if he »

The footage, which debuted during the show's New York Comic Con panel earlier today, shows a happy Ryan Hardy giving a heartfelt toast at a wedding, before he is suddenly attacked by a mysterious man. It isn't quite clear if this man has any ties to James Purefoy's Joe Carroll, but series stars Kevin Bacon, Shawn Ashmore and executive producer Marcos Siega teased new details about what fans can expect in Season 3.
The season picks up one year after Season 2, but there will be flashbacks to show what Ryan Hardy has been up to in the year since Season 2 ended. The show's writers also crafted Season 3 to welcome in new viewers, adding details so newcomers can get caught up with the show without having to watch the first two seasons. »
After last week’s news about Netflix securing The Blacklist for a record fee, a similar story came to light this week concerning the pre Batman prequel series Gotham. Now rather than getting it day and date after Us broadcast as per Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn, Gotham’s entire run will just arrive on Netflix after it’s finished its TV broadcast. Worse news is that this means you have to wait for Channel 5 to get their finger out and schedule it on one of their three channels and then muck it around the schedule just to confuse you further and for it to finish its run there. Kind of takes the wind out the sails doesn’t it? I wouldn’t expect to see Gotham on Netflix until this time next year at best but we will see.

Producers and stars from Fox's “The Following” revealed details on the scrapped alternate ending to Season 2 and what's to come on Season 3. Stars Kevin Bacon, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood and Jessica Stroup joined creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson and executive producers Marcos Siega and Jennifer Johnson at San Diego Comic-Con on Sunday. The panel started with the fabled alternate ending, which was shot then scrapped for the one that actually aired. Even the stars had no idea which ending would air. It finds twin Luke (Underwood) shooting and killing big bad Joe (James Purefoy). Meanwhile, Ryan (Bacon) and Joe share. »

[Warning: Spoilers ahead of The Following.] The Following is approaching season three like a reset. The Hall H crowd was treated to an alternate ending for the season-two finale, which saw Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) fatally shot by Mark Gray (Sam Underwood). The ending would have had larger implications for the new season, but creator Kevin Williamson insisted that things wouldn't change that much had Joe died or stayed alive, which the producers decided to go with. Plus, he wanted to keep the Joe Carroll thread dangling. Photos The Scene at Comic-Con 2014 "It was an opportunity

It's Comic-Con Sunday. Woo! On Saturday, I live-blogged Wbtv's Night of DC Entertainment, "True Blood" and "The Vampire Diaries." Sunday is TV Day in Hall H and I'll be live-blogging panels for "Sons of Anarchy" and "The Strain." But first? Kevin Williamson and Kevin Bacon return to see if people are actually interested in what's in store for Season 3 of "The Following"... Follow along... [See what I did there?] 11:13 a.m. The line to get into Hall H is, at the most, a couple hundred people and I'm guessing a couple thousand "Supernatural" fans departed. 11:15 a.m. Off we go! Our panel: Sam Underwood, Marcos Siega, Kevin Bacon, Kevin Williamson, Jennifer Johnson, Shawn Ashmore and Jessica Stroup. 11:18 a.m. They shot two endings last season, at least allegedly. With teases like this, I never know who's joking and which "special" endings are real. It begins as last season did with Kevin Bacon »
