James Purefoy was ready for Joe to die — more ready than most fans! The actor, who just landed his first post-‘Following’ role in ‘Hap & Leonard,’ dissected that crazy yet ‘satisfying’ death to HollywoodLife.com.
We all knew it was happening, but the end of Joe Carroll was the end of an era on The Following— not just for fans, but for James Purefoy himself. Luckily, we got to chat with him after the episode and I hate to break it to y’all — but Joe’s really gone.
Say goodbye to Joe Carroll and hello to Hap Collins. Sundance TV has just announced that James Purefoy will star alongside Michael Kenneth Williams in the new show, ‘Hap & Leonard.’
Based on the book by Joe Lansdale, Sundance TV will soon begin filming a six-episode series, Hap and Leonard. James Purefoy, whose time on The Following, sadly came to an end on April 27, has been named the lead character Hap, a laborer who works on a plantation farm after years in federal prison for refusing to be drafted into the Vietnam War. Luckily, he has his best friend Leonard on his side.
Plus, Natalie reveals why she ‘ain’t scared’ of being the next character killed off Kevin Williamson’s addictive new thriller, continuing at 9 p.m. tonight on FOX.
Natalie Zea is used to playing “the love interest” on TV. She’s done it countless times, and she’s damn good at it. But on FOX’s The Following, playing the ex-wife of serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) — as well as the potential love interest of Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), the man who put Joe behind bars — feels like a totally new experience for her. Needless to say, it’s complicated.
