WHICH ACTORS ARE RETURNING TO AMERICAN HORROR STORY?Posted: March 2, 2012
UPDATE Friday, March 2nd at 10:17pm:
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Zachary Quinto will join Ms. Jessica Lange as a series regular in Season 2. Word is he’ll play a bad guy who gets on Lange’s damn nerves. This is great news because I think Quinto and Lange will have great chemistry onscreen.
Last month Ryan Murphy confirmed that the Harmon family (Ben, Vivien, and Violet) will not return for the new season. Ben and Vivien did have a baby boy who eventually became a murderous toddler under the care of Constance, so perhaps the little boy will appear in a few episodes…?? Anyhow, I think there’s a high chance of Evan Peters coming back.
Below is my initial post on Friday March 2nd at 10am:
Murphy has already confirmed that Season 2 will take place in a new city, in a new house, and with new characters. Now he’s revealed that the beautiful Jessica Lange will return and she will portray a new character. Goodbye Constance, and goodbye rubber suit!
In Murphy’s interview with EW, he also announced three other actors from the first season have agreed to return, and hopefully those names will be revealed on Friday, March 2nd.
I know which three actors I would like to see in the new season, and I’m assuming they’ll play all-new characters:
Kate Mara: Her role as crazy ass Hayden was fun to watch. At times I found her annoying and whiny but she really knew how to dig under Ben’s (Dylan McDermott) skin.
Taissa Farmiga: I didn’t like her as Violet at first but as the season went along she delivered some really strong performances.
Evan Peters: He played creepy and disturbed Tate, and he was amazing! If I’m right and he has signed to appear in the new season, I’d like to see him play a good guy. Or maybe a good guy who becomes a bad guy and then becomes a ghost. Who knows!
Honorable mention goes to Zachary Quinto because I loved his role as the snarky, bitchy Chad. I know Quinto is doing movies, like the next Star Trek, but I’d be really happy to see him become a regular on AHS Season 2.
What are your thoughts? Which three actors would you like to see in Season 2, and what do you think about Jessica Lange’s return?
