Kevin Bacon thinks everyone is trying to kill him in 'The Following' spoof

Posted on


Apparently Kevin Bacon has been on The Following long enough to actually believe there are serial killers everywhere. Or so this spoof of the psychological series leads us to believe.

The show’s producers and Bacon teamed up to create the parody, “Funny AND Die,” which follows Bacon (and a few familiar faces) throughout his normal day. But it becomes apparent Bacon really believes he is FBI agent Ryan Hardy in The Following and that serial killer Joe Carroll has sent his own friends after him. 

Bacon becomes suspicious of everyone around him, including real-life wife Kyra Sedgwick, who tries to calm him with the offer of a round of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon and stovetop s’mores.

A special two-hour episode of The Following airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT on Fox.
