  1. is this series finite, like The Stand, or is there potential for more seasons?

  2. Aline says:

    Good news. I liked him in Miami Medical! And in ‘The Help’.

  3. They have said they would like more than one season, and they said it would end differently than the book. And this is a horrible choice for Barbie

  4. dude says:

    I think he’d make a better Ken Ayyyyooooooo!

  5. Elle says:

    I never read the book but this show sounds exciting and something new to watch over summer!

  6. Me says:

    Simpsons already did it.

    • ollie says:

      no they didnt ,he began writing the book in the 70s. horrible choice for barbie but not surprising. the only good casting choice so far is colin as joe.

  7. Elise says:

    I really like him and am glad he’s joining.

  8. Olivia says:

    Barbie? For a guy? Am I missing something in the English language?

  9. cj says:

    Barbie is short for Dale Barbara. I really like this actor but a little too pretty boy for the role as writteb in the book. Barbie is a bit more grizzled. Oh well ill still watch. im really happy its a summer series to makes it like an event kind of thing.

  10. Ella says:

    Can we get Karine Vanasse to join the cast and have a Dean and Colette reunion? They were the best thing about Pan Am.

  11. keith says:

    I was just thinking about this guy today and what he would do next. Weird.

  12. Chris says:

    Uh, what? Wasn’t Barbie older? Like a lot older? Like someone in their 50’s at the youngest? That or my reading comprehension has seriously failed me.

    • Leah says:

      I have just started reading the book. When Barbie is introduced,there is a line including the phrase “gentleman of thirty summers”. Unless there is another way to interpret that, Barbie is 30. Mike Vogel is 33, so while he may not be what some people pictured, I’d say he’s age appropriate.

  13. Ty says:

    He’s easily 20 years younger than that.
