At the premiere party for his new serial-killer thriller The Following, we asked Kevin Bacon if he ever stopped by the Girls set (it's one stage over from his). He didn't, but he did have a Girls run-in that very morning. "I'll tell ya," he said, "today I was on Kelly and Michael, and Allison Williams was on the show, too, and her dressing room was right next door. So I thought I'd go and knock and say how much I liked the show, because I'm such a big fan — and they wouldn't open the door! I couldn't even get into the dressing room!" At this point, his co-star Natalie Zea chimes in: "Did you say, [does a deep voice] 'I'm Kevin Bacon!'" "No," he said. "They're very, very exclusive over there." He remains a Girls fan nonetheless. "I was thinking about the fact that if I wasn't already on a show, Girls would be a show I'd want to be on. But think about it — I'd have to go on as the grandfather." Or Adam's dad, we suggest. "Or the creepy uncle. But I don't want to be that."
