Casting for Season 2 of FX’s “American Horror Story” has begun with Deadline.com is reporting that BOTH Jessica Lange and Zachary Quinto are signed and set to return in different roles.
Like Lange, [Quinto] will play a brand new character next season, which is set at an East Coast institution. What’s more, I have learned that Quinto will play one of two male leads and the nemesis to Lange’s character, which will be at the center of the Season 2 storyline. The part is sure to draw parallels to Quinto’s breakout role as uber-villain Syler on Heroes.
Aslo returning for Season 2 as different characters will be Evan Peters (Tate) , Sarah Paulson (Billie Dean Howard) and Lily Rabe (Nora Montgomery)
I LOVE the idea of a Seasonal Anthology with recurring ensemble players doing different roles each season. But AHS did use about every horror cliche during its first season and relied on its Hollywood location to set the tome. Can creator Ryan Murphy think outside the box enough and come up with an itriguing original story to keep viewers satisfied for Season 2?
We’ll see. But the real queation is will Zachie Quinto be playing gay AGAIN this season? (Or at least be naked.)
