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.
