Norman Cast in Bates Motel

The A&E Series has its lead

Does anyone remember that cute and lovable kid from E.T.? Sure you do, Henry Thomas. Well do you remember that he went on to play Norman Bates in Psycho IV: The Beginning? I could go into more disturbing details about Psycho IV but let’s not. Well another lovable kid has grown up and he too will don the mantel of Norman Bates. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s star, Freddie Highmore is the next Norman. He will join Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) in the A&E series (yes, series) based on Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Psycho. The prequel TV series starts production in October and will be released in 2013. 

Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.

Surely you mean it's based on the book by Robert Bloch...

The original movie was based on the novel by Bloch but this is based off the movie. Not that hard.

 Good question BunyonSnipe, as more details emerge I guess we will find out.

I see Bates and kid, I always think of "The Toy" kid.  Richard Pryor movie.  "Master Bates?"  makes me laugh.

 I'm interested to see what story they can possibly tell.  Not much suspense.  She was mentally abusive.  She whored around.  Norman kills her and he grows up to continue to kill.  Got it.

Boooo. I was hoping it was the original Charlie from the Gene Wilder "Willie Wonka". What is that kid doing now?

Every article I've seen about this has a picture of Freddie Highmore except of course for this one.  Pictures of the mofos that will appear in a tv show/movie, etc. are good.  Why is Mania against pictures?
