Kevin Bacon spent his weekend doing what you do in Annapolis -- sailing and eating good food. The actor was in town to perform Friday at Rams Head On Stage with his brother, Michael.  The pair began touring as "The Bacon Brothers" nearly two decades ago. On Saturday, the brothers and other band members hopped on a yacht from Annapolis Yacht Sales with WRNR DJ Alex Cortwright. The group sailed from the yacht store's dock to Bembe Beach near Chesapeake Harbor, where they dropped anchor.

No network midseason show has generated more buzz than "The Following," which premieres Monday night on Fox. There are three reasons for that: First, Kevin Bacon is the star, and he's better than most network television actors. Here he plays an angry, burned-out ex-F.B.I. agent with a drinking problem who is called out of retirement when a serial killer escapes from prison. Second, because the serial killer worships Edgar Allan Poe, the series is drenched in all things Poe. Baltimore, being filled with Poe Lovers, is a prime target for the Fox publicity campaign.

As traffic continues to flow to coverage of Super Bowl preparations, the Roe vs. Wade anniversary and post-inaugural activities, a few newer topics have also bubbled to the surface in our collective consciousness. Instagram is posting impressive numbers, and in an only-slightly-less blatant PR move, likely specs for the next generation of XBox have "leaked. " Also debuting this week: The Following , a show about crazy, violent people that is linked to Baltimore in a different way than other recent shows about crazy, violent people.

Apart from one urban cliffhanger set in a parking garage - it should have an afterlife as an action sequence long after the rest of this sorry celluloid has turned to soup - the grandiose, grimly silly revenge thriller Death Sentence will mostly benefit free-form players of "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon." Bacon can now readily be linked to nonpareil macho movie star Charles Bronson, because Death Sentence is based on novelist Brian Garfield's 1975 sequel to Death Wish, which Bronson and director Michael Winner turned into a hit vigilante film in 1974.

After a summer of "The Blair Witch Project" and "The Sixth Sense," who would want to have the bejeebers scared out of them one more time by "Stir of Echoes," the latest entry into the Heebie Jeebie Sweepstakes of 1999?This supernatural thriller, which stars Kevin Bacon as a blue-collar husband and father who becomes convinced that his stolid brick rowhouse is haunted, isn't nearly as terrifying or suspenseful as its predecessors.

Zach Johnson has spent the past 12 years racing pigs at fairs nationwide, and this weekend marked his sixth return to the Maryland State Fair in Timonium. But the goateed Kansas City resident still seems to enjoy watching the creatures waddle-trot around the tiny track. Or as he'd undoubtedly put it, the job isn't boaring. The man is a pig pun machine, cranking them out like a sausage factory, especially when it comes to the names. Consider the lineup for the first of three races Saturday afternoon: Kevin Bacon, David Hasselhog, Brad Pig and Simon Sowell.

SUN SCORE ** 1/2 The Woodsman clicks mostly when it depicts the brooding romance between a child molester (Kevin Bacon) just released from prison and the fierce, determined woman (Kyra Sedgwick) who breaks into his zone of privacy. In real life, Bacon and Sedgwick are husband and wife. Their scenes mark one of the rare times an off-screen couple's intimacy enriches on-screen passion. Bacon plays a man petrified by his own impulses; emotionally and physically, he's blanched. Sedgwick plays a robust, chin-first woman who works with him at a lumberyard and senses that he has "a dark, deep secret."

HBO might have lost its way when it comes to making weekly series, but it still produces exceptional made-for-TV movies. Taking Chance, an elegiac chronicle of the final journey home for a 19-year-old Marine killed in Iraq, is one of the most eloquent and socially conscious films the premium cable channel has ever presented. Kevin Bacon delivers a lights-out, searing performance as Michael Strobl, a tightly wrapped lieutenant colonel who escorts the remains of Lance Cpl. Chance Phelps from the Dover Port Mortuary in Delaware to the home of the dead Marine's parents in Dubois, Wyo. Meanwhile, producer-writer-director Ross Katz steeps the cross-country journey in such a rich brew of distilled emotion and America iconography that at times the film feels almost too intense to bear - and that is a good thing.

Actor Kevin Bacon brought his star power to a charity event Wednesday at the University of Maryland, College Park. But the cheers the actor received were not as loud as the hoots and hollers directed toward the six student groups competing for $5,000 toward their favorite causes. The competition — called the "Do Good" Challenge — is part of an effort by the school to make philanthropy more of a focus in academics and student life. The winner was The Food Recovery Network, which developed a system of collecting food from campus dining halls that would otherwise go to waste and distributing it to homeless shelters.

George Hamilton burst on the scene in the final days of Old Hollywood - one of his first credits was Vincente Minnelli's "Home From the Hill" (1960). He soon embodied all the fashion-plate allure of big-studio stardom with his own glints of humor and hedonism. He learned the studios' lessons about swank, verve and glamour without swallowing them whole. Irony became him - and becomes him. Over the past five decades, he's gone from youthful bon vivant to silver fox without losing his je ne sais quoi.

Been a long time, Fenwick. Some of us last saw Kevin Bacon in Baltimore when he played a rich lost kid named Timothy Fenwick - drunk and away in a Christmas manger in Barry Levinson's 1982 Diner. That very diner has long since moved to Saratoga Street - but still sells fries with gravy. Kevin Bacon has long since moved on to many movies - Footloose, A Few Good Men, JFK, Apollo 13 and Mystic River - but he returns to Maryland this weekend. He won't be acting but singing with his older brother Michael, as they bring the Bacon Brothers Band to Rams Head Live!
