Bates Motel Casts a Mad Man as Romero's [Spoiler]

Kevin Rahm Bates Motel

Just what Bates Motel needs — another madman.

A&E’s serial thriller is adding Mad Men‘s Kevin Rahm to the Season 3 cast in a recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Rahm will play Bob Paris, the wealthy, self-involved and gregarious owner of an elite hunting club who grew up with Romero. The pair now have a strained relationship, but they keep their mutual dislike under wraps. (Bates EP Kerry Ehrin first teased Bob’s arrival at Comic-Con; see video below.)

The former Desperate Housewives co-star is Bates Motel‘s third major Season 3 hire, following the casting of Revolution‘s Tracy Spiridakos (as a mystery woman who may or may not cozy up to Dylan) and Sons of Anarchy‘s Ryan Hurst (as an onscreen rival to Kenny Johnson’s Caleb).

Bates Motel reopens in March 2015.

    Why is it that, every time I see a photo of Kevin Rahm, I hear a deep, raspy, convict voice saying, “You sho’ do got a pretty mouth, boy!”?
