    • Haha my thoughts exactly….Dana is best when she isn’t whining and being dark(so rarely)…but now she’ll have a troubled friend. Ergh, maybe this is the season Brody becomes a true American hero and runs Dana over with a bus.

  • Hopefully this casting news means the rumored Dexter spin-off won’t center on him…

    • Why? People die fast on The Following, even/especially for regulars.

    • Because a spin off featuring him is a terrible idea, if they spin the show off it needs to be focused on someone currently in the cast, not some bloke they threw in to the final season, especially if it IS to set him up as the star for the spin off. I think it would ruin the legacy of the show…

  • Hopefully he will get paid for working with a Bacon, not everyone does.
