Kevin Bacon takes the lead in Kevin Williamson's serial killer pilot
We don't often cover the television world, but when we do, it's something awesome like this.
Kevin Bacon is signing on to play the good guy in Kevin Williamson's drama pilot for a new series on Fox. The story centers on, "the complex relationship between a diabolical serial killer and the damaged FBI agent who took him down. After the killer escaped, the agent is reactivated and discovers that he is no longer just hunting one man, but a massive cult of serial killers created and manipulated during his time in prison."
I think that Bacon would be great in either role, however when I initially saw the headline I misread it and thought that Bacon would be the serial killer. Now I'm wondering who they are thinking about for that part.
In addition to the casting of Bacon, I've been a fan of Williamson's writing for awhile now. SCREAM is one of my favorite horror movies. The writer has had some experience in television creating and writing for shows like VAMPIRE DIARIES and DAWSON'S CREEK. I know those aren't great examples for some of you, but I think we can get past that.
Really looking forward to this one. Who do you guys think should play the serial killer opposite Bacon?
