The actor will co-star alongside Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates.
"I was kind of suprised, am I playing Norman Bates?" Thieriot said of his reaction when the project was first brought his way. "Obviously, I'm not, I'm playing his brother, who they created. That, for me, is more exciting because the character is unknown and can do anything. There's a lot of room to play there. Alfred Hitchcock is amazing, his movies are pretty awesome. It's all pretty exciting to be a part of something like that."
