The very adult FX series from Nip/Tuck and Glee mastermind, out Ryan Murphy, just keeps looking better and better. And gayer.
We've been hooked on the forthcoming "psychosexual thriller” from Ryan Murphy and fellow Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk since the first spooky teaser promo. And the news that Star Trek super babe Zachary Quinto would have a reoccurring role as the gay former owner of the haunted home only further piqued our interest.
Now comes the news that two stars known very well to the LGBT community will be joining the cast.
Out actress Sarah Paulson was recently announced as a multi-episode arch guest star on the series starring Dylan McDermott, Jessica Lange, and Connie Britton.
E! Online reports,
A reliable AHS source tells us that Paulson, who also played the nasty governess in Deadwood, is joining the show for a big four-episode arc as a medium named Billie Dean. Sounds like someone enlists Billie's help to chat with the spirits roaming around that spooky house. But we don't think it's Vivien (Connie Britton) who wants her help.
Most of her scenes will be opposite her Broadway buddy Jessica Lange (they starred together in The Glass Menagerie). Paulson and the sure-to-be Emmy-nominated Lange together on your TV screen? It's like a perfect storm of acting awesomeness.
Sounds like when cary things start happening at the haunted Harmon family Los Angeles house at the center of the series, they call on Paulson to connect them to the other side.
In more exciting AHS news, EW.com reports Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cam, one-half of the fabulous gay couple on Modern Family, may be seeking a little therapy.
Stonestreet will appear in a November episode as a patient of Dr. Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott). The reason for his shrink session? Stonestreet’s character has a fear of urban legends, like Bloody Mary and, more importantly for the show, Pigman. Stonestreet has worked with Murphy and Falchuk before on Nip/Tuck as a death row inmate.
With the addition of the hilarious Stonestreet, the talented Paulson, plus the great Lange, McDermott and Britton, and the chillingly spooky promo (see below), we can’t wait for the October debut.
