AMERICAN HORROR STORY Scoop: Ryan Murphy Teases Kathy Bates’ Turn as a ‘Bad, Bad Woman!’ http://t.co/v7cNHEfof9
FX’s American Horror Story has enlisted Oscar-winner Kathy Bates for its third season. Bates joins the show after earning a pair of Emmy nominations for the first two seasons of NBC’s Harry’s Law, which was cancelled last May.
Bates will play the best friend of Jessica Lange’s new character on FX’s hit horror-show who turns into Lange’s nemesis.
Details on American Horror Story - season three are few, but series co-creator Ryan Murphy previously confirmed that Lange will play a “glamour cat leading lady,” in stark contrast to her gloomy Asylum wardrobe. Ryan also teased that the new season will be “more historical in nature” and take place in modern day. But just like past seasons, we will see different “time periods” and “there [will] also be different cities.”
Horror Story vets reuniting with Lange in Season 3 include Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga and Bates’ former Six Feet Under co-star, Frances Conroy.
