It is amazing how the folks casting FX Channels monster hit AMERICAN HORROR STORY have managed to find so many A list stars to act in their quirky genre experiment but they have and it just makes things all the better for us fans.
Season three is gearing up and although no truly official press release has come out yet an icredibly dependable source has confirmed some giant casting news. Via TWITTER show helmer Ryan Murphy stated: “Two legends are joining the cast of American Horror Story: Coven — Oscar nominee Angela Bassett and Tony winner Patti LuPone!”
That is some pretty impressive casting news, especially for a horror tale. Jessica Lange is of course returning along with previously announced cast members Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Kathy Bates, Gabourey Sidibe.
Gonna be a hell of a season!
Still very little known about the upcoming season. We know it is, for the first time, being shot in multiple locations, we know it will have something to do with witches and we know it will be more historical in nature with a horror/romance twist.
One thing for sure, it should be on of the best acted shows on TV.
