A Few Details About Ryan Murphy’s Super-Secret ‘American Horror Story’

Thursday, February 24 by

Glee‘s” Ryan Murphy and his “Nip/Tuck” partner Brad Falchuk  have been pretty tight-lipped about their new FX pilot “American Horror Story.” There’s been no word on plot or genre. All we’ve had to go on is the cheery and optimistic sounding title. Until now.

Michael Ausiello did some digging and was able to uncover a casting breakdown for the pilot’s four leads. And, thankfully, the Twilight elements are minimal.

  • Ben Harmon | Though as sensitive as a woman, this 40ish therapist is also a man’s man.
  • Vivien Harmon | Ben’s gorgeous wife, she is a force to be reckoned with in spite of her vulnerable demeanor.
  • Violet | The Harmons’ 16-year-old daughter is a Goth with more issues than a Borders magazine rack.
  • Tate Langdon | This 17-year-old is as dangerous as he is seductive. And not “Glee’s Puck dangerous,” either; we’re talking “Charles Manson dangerous.”

Ah. So it seems that the action is centered around the Harmons and their shitty daughter. Still no word if there will be a supernatural element to this show, but it seems that they’re going for a more reality-based drama. One thing is certain, it seems there won’t be any glee clubs on this show. Though seeing a jazz tap routine performed by a “Charles Manson dangerous” type sounds compelling. If that doesn’t work out here, maybe “Dancing With The Stars” can figure out some kind of work-release situation. (TV Line)
