TV: Morris Chestnut And Sarah Paulson Sign On For “American Horror Story”

Two bits of casting news on “American Horror Story” today.

First up? Sarah Paulson (“Serenity”, Martha Marcy May Marlene). She’s always been a good actress beset by a lack of exposure and I’m glad that seems to be turning around for her this year. Per E! Online , “A reliable AHS source tells us that Paulson, who also played the nasty governess in Deadwood, is joining the show for a big four-episode arc as a medium named Billie Dean… most of her scenes will be opposite her Broadway buddy Jessica Lange.

Next up? Morris Chestnut (Boyz N The Hood,, Ladder 49). Per Variety, “Chesnut will play the character of Luke“. Think I left some info out? Nope. That’s all they had.

“American Horror Story”, co-created by former “Nip/Tuck” executive producers and current “Glee” co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, revolves around the Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The show premieres on FX October 5th.
