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.
