Comic-Con 2013: Kevin Bacon talks 'The Following' and Ryan Hardy
His character may have only barely survived "The Following" Season 1, but Kevin Bacon was ready to talk about Season 2 at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con. Find out what he had to say in this interview.
One important point that Bacon makes is that "The Following" will have a time jump of many months in between Season 1 and Season 2. As a result, all of the surviving characters will be at a very different point in their lives from where we last saw them, "You'll see Ryan in a better place in his life," Bacon says of his character, Ryan Hardy.
Other things learned from the video:
- Although Ryan will have moved past the whole Joe Carroll situation when the season begins, nothing is really over there.
- Ryan Hardy will be teaching criminology in Season 2. The parallels with Carroll's former career are not lost on Kevin Bacon.
- A new character -- Ryan's niece -- will be introduced in Season 2
