    “[Barbie] doesn’t weigh his actions — he just acts,” says Mike Vogel, adding that his character “will find himself in some very violent situations” as CBS’s hit summer series wraps up its first season on September 16.
     
    Has ­Barbie’s deadly past finally caught up with him? Or is this all part of Big Jim’s latest power play? Those secrets are being kept under wraps, but fans of Stephen King’s novel should expect a new ending to this chapter of the story. Says executive producer Neal Baer: “We’re kind of going in a different direction.”
