Ever since A&E announced their plans for "Psycho" prequel series "Bates Motel," the big question has been: Who'll play Norman Bates? The answer is finally in: Freddie Highmore, the formerly adorable child star of "Finding Neverland" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" now a 20-year-old young man and ready for more grown-up roles.
On paper it looks like a great pick that further solidifies our interest in the show, which already made a shrewd move in casting Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga ("Up in the Air") as Norman's infamous mother, Norma Bates. Following in Alfred Hitchcock's footsteps is a daunting challenge, but it's sounding more and more like "Bates Motel" may be up to the task. Highmore's casting was first reported by TV Guide.
