The new Fox drama The Following debuts tonight, and star Kevin Bacon promises an extremely fast pace.

"The show moves at a breakneck speed, and every time I get a new script, I pick it up and what I'm mostly amazed at is that both from a plot standpoint and from a character standpoint, there are so many things I don't see coming," Kevin reveals.

Kevin plays retired FBI agent Ryan Hardy, who is hunting after serial killer Joe Carroll, who is played by James Purefoy. 

"Joe Caroll doesn't want to kill Ryan Hardy. He just wants to cause him exquisite pain," James explains. "[They're] in this strange dance of death with each other that will keep going on and on and on until one of them dies."

Apparently, Kevin and James have great chemistry together.

"We just felt it," Kevin says of his first scene with James. "He's a fantastic actor and incredibly well prepared. What's funny about those scenes with me and James is they go really fast. We shoot those things in no time."

We can't wait to tune in and see just how fast-moving this show really is!
