Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive deets and spoilers about the newest season of my fave show of last year, American Horror Story. What we know so far:
1) American Horror Story: Asylum is set in a 1960s insane asylum run by nuns.
2) The amazing Jessica Lange is returning along with series regulars Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lily Rabe. BUT! They'll be playing totally different roles than last season.
3) Joining the cast is Portlandia star (ha) Chloe Sevigny, and Maroon 5 frontman/dumb reality contest judge Adam Levine.
Want to know the latest spoilery scoop regarding the evil that awaits? Hit the jump.
How does American Horror Story top a first season that included a ghost in a rubber fetish suit, a Frankenstein-like monster baby dressed in a Christening gown, and Dylan McDermott’s bare buttocks? It heads to a loony bin run by nuns! Well, and it also introduces aliens, Nazis, and a serial killer named Bloody Face who wears a mask made out of his victims skin along with black nightie and opera length gloves.
This particular workplace is run by a wickedly stern nun named Sister Jude (Lange) who is surrounded by a cast of characters ranging from a possible former Nazi, Dr. Arden (James Cromwell), to nymphomaniac patient Shelley (Chloe Sevigny). But Sister Jude is also quite a troubled woman with a dark past that will resurface. “If I were playing a straitlaced nun, start to finish, I can’t say that would interest me too much,” says Lange. “What’s great are the extremes. To go from where she was and where she’s getting to, that’s what’s going to be interesting.”
This is going to be... SOOOOOO GOOD!!
