Psycho Casting Update

Norma Bates

A&E’s Psycho TV series has found its Mrs. Bates.

The Departed actress Vera Farmiga has been cast as one of the most notorious mothers in movie history. She joins A&E’s Bates Motel, a prequel to the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film. “[Farmiga] is a phenomenal talent who has demonstrated incredible range and intelligence in a number of landmark film roles, and we couldn’t be more excited to have her join our project,” executive producer Carlton Cuse said.

The role’s official description downplays Mrs. Bates’ abusive character, who twists her son into a serial killer of women: “Mother of young Norman Bates. She’s complicated, passionate, and compelling, Norma Louise is a smart, multidimensional character who is always capable of surprising us.”

Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.

Why on Earth would Vera Farmiga want to do an also-ran tv show?!?! She's too good of an actress, and this show is probably going to be an utter failure. It stinks of studio execs grasping at the popularity of American Horror Story.

Why?  Just Why?
