“American Horror Story” is adding another member to its “Coven” as THR writes that funnyman Leslie Jordan has joined the cast of the all-star third season of the FX anthology series from Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
Details on who Jordan will play, as has become standard with the series, are being kept under wraps. The comedian-actor first announced the casting on his Facebook page.
“Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.”
Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Alexandra Breckenridge, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Jamie Brewer, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, Patti Lupone, and Denis O’Hare all star.
“American Horror Story: Coven” premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 10 p.m. on FX.
