A new recurring character has been added to Season 2 of “The Following” on Fox, and we also have a bit of guest star casting news to report that got lost in the shuffle last week leading up to Halloween.
First, Aussie actress Jacinda Barrett (pictured; “Suits,” “Zero Hour”) will play Julia, a very disarming and alluring woman whose mysterious intentions send several main characters in a frightening new direction.
The guest star heading our way is “Oz” alum Lee Tergesen (The Collection, No One Lives), who will appear in the seventh episode as Kurt Bolen, a seemingly normal family man who may harbor a dark secret.
They join the previously announced Keith Carradine as a friend of Ryan Hardy, Jessica Stroup as Hardy’s NYPD specialist niece, Connie Nielsen as a romantic interest for Ryan, Sam Underwood as a dangerous young man/possible follower of Joe Carroll, Tiffany Boone as the latest inductee of Carroll’s murderous cult, Valerie Cruz as an NYPD cop who works closely with Mike Weston, and James McDaniel as an FBI agent.
“The Following” Season 2:
Following the season finale of “Sleepy Hollow” at a special time on Monday, January 20, 2014 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), last season’s No. 1 new series, “THE FOLLOWING” (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), begins its 15-week uninterrupted second season.
Created by Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Dawson’s Creek,” the Scream franchise) and starring Golden Globe Award-winning actor Kevin Bacon (X-Men: The Last Stand, Frost/Nixon) and James Purefoy (“Rome”), Season 2 will catch up with RYAN HARDY (Bacon) in the wake of a horrific new murder spree. The FBI calls on Ryan and MIKE WESTON (Shawn Ashmore) to speak with the lone survivor, LILY (Connie Nielsen; “Boss,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), in order to help them solve the case. Ryan is reluctant to re-engage with the FBI but finds a valuable ally in his niece, MAX (Jessica Stroup, “90210”), an NYPD cop working in the Intel Division.
As the investigation proceeds, Ryan crosses paths with several complicated individuals, including LUKE (Sam Underwood, “Dexter”) and MANDY LANG (Tiffany Boone, Beautiful Creatures), which furthers his suspicion that JOE CARROLL’s (Purefoy) reign of terror is far from over.
