American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy let slip some late-breaking casting news for the third season of the hit FX series.
He informed his followers on his social media channels that Danny Huston (30 Days of Night) will appear as a “sexy (and dangerous)” boyfriend to Jessica Lange’s character. Huston recently enjoyed a term on the series Magic City on Starz until it was recently cancelled.
Lange returns to the series alongside Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, Taissa Farmiga, Jamie Brewer, Lily Rabe, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe and Kathy Bates.
“Coven” tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.
New episodes begin October 9th.
