The New York Comic Con Outcast panel featured, Patrick Fugit (Kyle Barnes), executive producers Robert Kirkman, Chris Black and moderator Jon Glaser. All things Outcast were discussed, even when fans came up to the mic to discuss Kirkman’s The Walking Dead. During the panel, the nastiest clip I’ve seen in a long time. made it’s way onto the screens. It scared me so much that I literally jumped and squealed out of my seat.
Be grossed out and watch the clip below:
During the Q&A period, I had to ask how does Gabriel Bateman deal with such traumatic scenes. Kirkman said Bateman isn’t disturbed by the material. Patrick Fugit who plays Kyle Barnes added that, “There are some intense scenes, and after, he’d be like, ‘that was awesome!'” He also said Bateman still wanted to be in Joshua Austin mode when his scenes were over and asked if he could stay that way to inspire Fugit’s, Kyle Barnes, performance.
Not only was the clip shown, but we got a look at the brand new Outcast trailer:
Unfortunately, Outcast still doesn’t have a release date and will air on Cinemax in 2016, although a source mentions Spring 2016.
Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous, Gone Girl) stars as Barnes, a man searching for answers, and for redemption, who sequesters himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt. Philip Glenister stars as Reverend Anderson, a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth. An inveterate drinker and gambler, he doesn’t believe God intends people to sweat the small stuff. Gabriel Bateman stars as Joshua Austin, an eight-year-old who lives across town from Kyle. To his family’s dismay, he appears to be in the clutches of demonic possession, but there’s something very different about this possession and its connection to Kyle Barnes.
Robert Kirkman wrote the pilot episode, You’re Next, directed by Adam Wingard.
