Anyone who has ever wondered what happened to that adorable kid from Finding Neverland and Tim Burton's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is about to get one HELLUVA rude awakening!
Because apparently, he grows up to be the serial killer Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho!
But in the upcoming A&E prequel mini-series, Bates Motel, the now-very-grown-up Freddie Highmore takes on the role made famous by Anthony Perkins as a teenager, with Vera Farmiga portraying his eventually-very-skeletal mother!
As you know, Patton's Oswalt's wife Michelle McNamarapassed away suddenly in April, and he still struggles to cope with the devastating loss.
Speaking with The Times, the stand-up comedian recounted the heartbreaking morning he found the true crime author had died in her sleep -- a day he says was the "the second worst day of his life," the first being when he had to tell the couple's seven-year-old daughter, Alice, that her mother had passed.
Oswalt recalled telling his wife -- who had been working long hours investigating "The Golden State Killer" -- to "sleep until you wake up." So, McNamara took some Xanax and went to bed.
