Kevin Bacon is coming back to the small screen (or if you're one of those TV-less millennials, the even smaller screen ... you know, your laptop)  for the first time since The Following. The actor is in final negotiations to star in Jill Soloway's Amazon comedy I Love Dick, a show based on the 1997 Chris Kraus novel by the same name. The show centers on Chris (Kathryn Hahn) and Sylvere, a struggling married couple in Marfa, Texas, and their obsession with a charismatic professor, Dick (Bacon!). We know what you're thinking — you're so excited to see Kevin Bacon for the first time since 1998's She's Having a Baby. Well, stop being such a goofball! He's been in plenty of stuff since then.
