Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have tapped Jessica Lange (Cape Fear, King Kong) to star in a lead role opposite Connie Britton in their FX horror pilot “American Horror Story.” This marks the first foray into TV series for the two-time Oscar winner, reports Deadline.
We’re told the plot follows Ben Harmon, a sensitive therapist, and Vivien Harmon (Britton), his gorgeous wife who is a force to be reckoned with in spite of her vulnerable demeanor. Denis O’Hare will play Larry, also referred to as “Larry the burn guy”.
Lange will play their nosy neighbor.
Murphy and Falchuk are now rewriting the script to expand the role for Lange, turning it into a full-fledged third lead.
Murphy is set to direct the pilot, from 20th Century Fox TV, which will start production later this month, after Murphy and Falchuk wrap production on “Glee.”
