B&C BEYOND: OCTOBER 29, 2012
Even serial killers have friends. With the premiere of Fox's new thriller, The Following, coming Jan. 21, the show's serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) has sent his "followers" to cities around the country to recruit more. Those who wish to be Joe's "friend" should look for those covered head-to-toe with phrases like "do I look like a killer," and "friend neighbor killer," who are giving out holographic bookmarks that direct to wearethefollowing.com, where a special message from Joe awaits. The stunt will take place-fittingly-on Halloween from 3-11 p.m. local time in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, among other cities.
