Jason Statham’s action sequences are always so badass because they take it to that point and it’s always so believable. While his behavior is disturbing and dysfunctional, I wanted to explore that road to examine what makes a person that way or what brought them to that place. With blood on her hands, Bradley turns to Norman once more, and, with his help, flees White Pine Bay to go into hiding in Boston. PPLA: You’ve appeared in sitcoms, dramas, action and even a bit of sci-fi, do you have a favorite genre that you prefer over all others? It’s nice to see Kenny Johnson back, and I doubt we’ve seen the last of him. His mother has smothered and sheltered him his whole life, to the point that he is awkward and socially inept, especially around people his own age. By: Kh Ishrar More Of Caleb And Return of Bradley In the very last season, we had to encounter one of the biggest revelations on Bates Motel so far, that being the disclosure of the true identity of Dylan’s father. When it is revealed that Norma lied to him about her husband's death, their friendship suffers and is nearly at an end. I’m curious if, as an artist, you deliberately seek out these gray kinds of characters or are you just not often offered more morally black or white types of roles? It helps a little bit. Another thing that pops into my head is that I used to watch Happy Days when I was a young kid and always dreamed that one day I’d go to Hollywood and try to be an actor. His persona is very cool and kind of reminds me of James Dean in a way. Dylan grows closer to Caleb and ponders telling Norma about his return, which is hastened by Norman and Emma spotting Caleb at the remote cabin. Caleb leaves again, but not before telling Norma about Norman attacking him in the "Mother" persona. I felt honored that it came my way, for sure. When he arrives to White Pine Bay, after recently being laid off, Dylan bonds with Norman and encourages him to have a life outside of Norma. KJ: I think I just put that energy out into the universe because I don’t like black or white. Currently your work on Saving Grace, Dexter, Sons of Anarchy and Burn Notice, for instance, can be streamed 24/7 at Netflix. We all just got along great. The same goes for Michele. KJ: Oh yeah, with anything I’ve ever done in my life I kind of pride myself on being a guy’s guy. He escapes in season 5 and kidnaps Norman and forces him to take him to where he hid Norma's body. After Norman (in Norma's persona) attacks him for the rape, Caleb leaves town. Norma and Caleb have an emotional reunion in which he apologizes to her, but she does not completely forgive him. He made his television debut as a guest star on Law & Order in 1999. After his three month course, he’d kind of planted some seeds in my head and gave me a couple of plays that he wrote to actually perform. And do you think sites like Kickstarter will continue to be a positive force for independent film? It didn’t win, but that was the only other thing that I’ve done that I know was funded by something else. KJ: Murphy is an emotionally distraught father who is obviously disturbed and very possessive over his family, his ground and where he grew up. I went from there to this teacher I’d heard amazing stuff about named Larry Moss. He feels like he needs to control that in a way and I just thought that would be really challenging. 1 Appearances 2 Career 3 Personal Life 4 Gallery Season Eight: "Make Your Own Kind of Music" "Goodbye Miami" "Monkey In a Box" Johnson got his start in television commercials, including one of the very first ads for LA Gear.
