He’ll play Barry, a trusted friend of Kevin Bacon’s Ryan Hardy.

Carradine’s hiring comes two weeks after The Following tapped current Dexter co-star Sam Underwood to recur as Luke, a very complicated and dangerous young man who may or may not be a follower of the “late” Joe Carroll.

Other recent castings for The Following, which returns at midseason, include NYPD Blue‘s James McDaniel, Boss‘ Connie Nielsen and 90210‘s Jessica Stroup.

  • So it seems that season 2 is going to be focusing a little more on the personal lives? Any word on how much Natalie Zea is coming back for?

    • I’d love to know about Natalie too! Why so much mystery involving her return? She’s certainly back, but in what capacity and for how long?? I don’t get why we seem to get new casting news on the show daily, but no one can tell us the status of least seasons LEADING LADY!!!

    • Well, since they are giving Ryan Hardy a new love interest, she can’t be back for long. Which is a shame since she was my favorite character and main reason for watching in Season 1. She and Hardy seemed a bit star crossed, and I just wanted to see them moving toward some sort of happiness.
