Confirmed: Jessica Lange to Play Key Role on American Horror Story Season 2

by at . Comments

It's now been confirmed by Ryan Murphy himself: Jessica Lange will return to American Horror Story this fall, but in a different role than the one that won her an Emmy on season one.

An Intriguing Trio

“We have designed the second season of American Horror Story completely around her character,” Murphy tells Entertainment Weekly. “Last year Jessica came in with Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott. This will really be the Jessica Lange show so I’m very excited about it. We are designing this amazing new opposite of the Constance character for her. She and I have spoken about different things. She has a lot of ideas, and has a lot of input into her character. She told me some things she has always wanted to play as an actress. She’s a great collaborator and a great friend.”

Season two of American Horror Story will revolve around a plot entirely separate from the Harmons and their baby.

Murphy said he'll reveal more casting information tomorrow night at the show's Paleyfest panel -- which TV Fanatic will be attending! Visit the site in the coming days for exclusive red carpet interviews and scoop.

I really hope this becomes 'The Jessica Lange Show'. She's just great and she really made it for me last year. She's just brilliant.

American Horror Story Quotes

Nein. Nein. No matinees. No. People don't come to see freaks in the heat of day, they come in the evening when the darkness moves in and speaks of mystery and the unknown. When logic loosens it's vice grip and the imagination comes out to play. Night allows the stars to shine and we come alive. No. Daytime is for kiddie shows, clouds and cupie dolls. If that's what you're used to, but you're in a real freak show now. MY freak show!

Else

Gloria: Where are you going?
Dandy: I don't know. Maybe St. Petersburg where they have real caramel corn, not that cardboard
they sell at the freak show!
