Hold onto your hats, fans of actress Jessica Lange! The Oscar-winning-excuse me, TWICE-Oscar-winning Lange is making her television debut on the upcoming FX pilot from”Glee” creator Ryan Murphy, “American Horror Story.” The premise of the show is being kept secret, but I’m guessing that “American Horror” would denote plots about unnecessary foreign wars, economic recession, and oil rig explosions. Just kidding, it’s probably about vampires or something.
She’s playing the “nosy neighbor” of the two leads, which is being expanded into a larger role to accommodate Lange. One of those two leads is a played by Connie Britton, while her husband on the show has yet to be cast. Denis O’Hare is also attached, as “Larry the burn guy.” I’m assuming that Larry the burn guy is a comedian who wears sleeveless shirts and sets people on fire. Man, I hope this show gets picked up, it sounds awesome. Ah, nope, he’s actually a vampire or something. (Deadline)
