Vera Farmiga to Play Norman's Mama in A&E's Bates MotelTaissa Farmiga made a pretty big splash in last season’s “American Horror Story,” and now her big sister, Vera (The Departed, Orphan, The Conjuring), is heading to the small screen as well, playing Norma Bates in A&E’s upcoming “Bates Motel” series.

“We are delighted to welcome Vera Farmiga to ‘Bates Motel’,” executive producer Carlton Cuse (of “Lost” fame) told TV Guide. “She is a phenomenal talent who has demonstrated incredible range and intelligence in a number of landmark film roles, and we couldn’t be more excited to have her join our project.”

In this prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic Psycho, Norman Bates is a boy of 16, showing peculiarities of what’s to come. “His mother, Norma, is in her early forties [Farmiga is 39] and very hot,” says Cuse. In the pilot the Bates family moves to a rural town in Northern California and purchases a run-down motel. “We’re reinterpreting the mythology a bit, and we might discover that Norman has a sibling.”

Look for more soon!

    Shes very hot. Loved Her in The Departed. As much as the idea of a Psycho series sounds good, I just dont get this series at all. i thought Normans past was covered in Psycho 4: The Beginning.

    Super sexy lady who delivers a great performance in everything I’ve seen.
