Some more details about the second season of “American Horror Story” are beginning to emerge. We already knew that Jessica Lange, Joseph Fiennes, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Adam Levine, Lizzie Brochere, Chloe Sevigny and James Cromwell has all been locked in, with the returning cast playing new roles. Murphy had also disclosed that the season would be “set in an institution for the criminally insane.” Fiennes’ character runs said institution where Jessica Lange works and will also be the object of her attraction as it’s been stated that “the pair have a May/December romance.”
Writer Tim Minear told MTV, “she’s playing something that’s a little more East Coast, a little more patrician. She’s playing a nun. In this instance, she’s a bride of Christ.” Conflict I guess!
Murphy has been talking a lot about how this season will be different from the last. He previously stated “I don’t want to say what Zach and Lily are doing, or what anybody else is doing, until we get closer to [fall]. But I’ll continue to say that everybody is playing the opposite of what they played last year, which I think is why they’re all so into it. Like, I have talked to Zach and Jessica and they were very excited… and that’s a rare thing.”
