Following Scoop: Michael Ealy Cast as Ryan Hardy's Next Nemesis

Michael Ealy The Following

We have a hunch that Almost Human‘s idealistic Dorian would be disappointed in Michael Ealy’s killer new role on The Following.

Ealy has been cast as a “brilliant, chameleon-like” murderer who’ll test Ryan Hardy’s limits, TVLine has learned.

The role is a leap from the actor’s last series-regular gig as an innocent, caring android in Fox’s cancelled sci-fi drama. His other TV work includes Common LawCalifornication and The Good Wife.

As previously reported, Hunter Parrish (Weeds) and Zuleikha Robinson (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland) will join Ealy on the Fox thriller’s Season 3 cast roster.

    Love Michael Ealy, but I’d rather have ‘Almost Human’ back!!!

  2. Joey Padron says:

    Interesting casting. Can’t wait to see how he does as a villian on the show. He was great on Almost Human.

  3. canjura says:

    I LOVE Michael Ealy, one of my favorite actors. But I also know he’s the kiss of death as a lead (Common Law and Almost Human), so maybe he can get some of the bad juju off this way and he can get a lead soon!

  4. Lizo says:

    *sobs* I just want Almost Human back so badly.

  5. Tran says:

    Still sad about Almost Human. Fox gave it all but it does have a passionate fanbase.

  6. Teag says:

    Wait, is he THE villain of season 3 or a guest/short recurring role?

  7. I love Michael Ealy and I wish that his series Almost Human was doing the second season. Good luck to his role as the newest villain on Following next January.

  8. I hope that he will be playing another good guy when the Following role is end.

  9. Netty says:

    I love him, I might just have to jump on The Following band wagon.

  10. Carolyn says:

    I agree he is too great to be bad, make him a partner on the Following. Would sure bring viewers.

  11. Sara says:

    I guess those Common Law guys have turned against the law

  12. David4 says:

    The casting on this show is better than most of the writing. (More so the horrible season 1!)

  14. Bernadette says:

    Liked Michael Ealy in “Almost Human” and “Common Law”. I quit “The Following” after 1st season. Will definitely watch again to see M.E.
