Casting and location news ... SPOILERS if you will. Jessica Lange will be returning "in a big way," says Ryan Murphy. “ First of these leaked was: Zachary Quinto, who will be the "male co-lead" Lange and he were electric in their showdown scene in S1. Also announced: Evan Peters (diabolical murderous Tate in S1) Sarah Paulson (Ghost researcher/Constance's pal in S1) Lily Rabe (Nora, the confused 1920s ghost/mother of the infantata) I like that this is apparently a completely different story, perhaps the perfect recipe for overcoming Murphy's penchant for not able to build on the characters and stories that were so intriguing in his prior series' excellent first seasons. New setting, new characters ... could save Murphy from himself, and give us a second season of delicious, creepy ridiculousness.
