Check Out Young Norman Bates From BATES MOTEL

A&E's PSYCHO prequel show has a first photo.

I don't know how Bates Motel is going to be - I read the pilot script and it was okay enough to make me watch, but not okay enough to convince me the show will work - but I like the look of Freddie Highmore as young Norman Bates. He has just enough of Anthony Perkins in him... which is actually a moot point, as Bates Motel is set in the modern day, making it a prequel to a Psycho that takes place in the year 2022. 

Vera Farmiga stars as Norma Bates, and that Bates house is not the actual one on the Universal lot (which I visited in this video), but rather a reconstruction up in Vancouver.
