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.

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

Fate. Destiny. Luck. The prisons of man. People pass the time, enjoying the choices life provides--coffee or tea, right or left--as if it matters. We are all just spinning on the wheel. There is but one way to keep off the wheel. It's not youth. It's not beauty or true love. I know how to stay off the wheel. I control my fate. I have survived because I know one must be willing to destroy anyone, anything, even the ones you love, to keep the gods in check.

[to Gloria] Those girls were a cool stream of glacier water. My heart bloomed as they nourished it. And now it's all gone. There's nothing left but the dust and the scorpions inside of me. I was never destined to feel love.
