Fans of reality TV often walk a strange tightrope, accepting in the back of their minds that the events being presented are somewhat staged, or even edited to appear more dramatic than they really are. That line isn't often called into question, but 'Storage Wars' star Dave Hester is fighting back against A&E for his recent dismissal, the cause of which was apparently complaints to the show's producers of “fraud on the public."

Norman Bates wasn't really a 'Psycho,' guys.  He was just a love-lorn teenager!  At least, that's the story A&E will tell in 2013, when its prequel TV series 'Bates Motel' explores the early years of the young 'Psycho' killer, particularly his teen years in high school.  Former 'The Killing' star Richard Harmon is the latest to join the cast of the forthcoming series, playing Bates (Freddie Highmore)'s high school rival, but what could have possibly come between them?

Regardless of how well received any prequel is to be, there's no arguing that near everything depends on the strength of casting its most iconic character.  So while we've been keeping a fettered eye on development of A&E's Carlton Cuse-produced 'Psycho' prequel TV series 'Bates Motel,' the ultimate casting officially has our interest.  Young British star Freddie Highmore will take the role of the iconic Norman Bates, but is he 'Psycho' enough for the part?
