American Horror Story Scoop: Jessica Lange to Portray...

by at . Comments

Ryan Murphy has made it clear in multiple interviews: Jessica Lange will play a very different character on American Horror Story Season 2 than she played on this same FX series last year.

The creator wasn't kidding.

Jessica Lange as Constance

Speaking to MTV News, American Horror Story writer Tim Minear confirmed that the Emmy winner will be working at an asylum for the criminal insane and then added:

"She's playing a nun. She's playing an administrator of a facility. It's different. In this instance, she's a bride of Christ."

Reiterating that the upcoming season will feature a "whole new story, a whole new location [and] a whole new time frame, Minear said "the reason we're doing it in the 1960s is because that fits the story that we want to tell."

And that story will partly include a role for Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

Simply stating that the singer will be one of "The Lovers," Minear teased: "Let's say that Adam's character is kind of a nod to contemporary sensibilities, as opposed to something from the mid-century."

American Horror Story is expected to return in October.

American Horror Story Quotes

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!

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!
