Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy Smooch During 'The Following' TCA Panel

For a brief moment, James Purefoy had zero degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon.

At Fox’s The Following panel at the TV critics press tour in Pasadena, a reporter confessed she just wanted to see Kevin and James' characters, FBI agent Ryan Hardy and serial killer Joe Carroll, kiss because they have so much chemistry on the show. And guess what?  The actors immediately leaned and granted her wish. "Rule nothing in, rule nothing out," Purefoy cheekily said after the smooch.

The Following centers on FBI agent Ryan Hardy who finds himself at the center of a network of serial killers, led by Joe Carroll. Check out the trailer for The Following below. 

The Following premieres January 21st at 9/8c, on FOX.
