Adam Levine Scared Into Acting With 'American Horror Story' Role?Hilary Rothing |
'The Voice's' Adam Levine is in talks to make the leap from music to acting with a role in the second season of FX's supernatural thriller, 'American Horror Story.'
Levine, who is in talks to take on the role of one half of a couple known as "The Lovers," would join season one stars, Zachary Quinto, Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson as 'American Horror Story' embarks on a brand new tale of terror for its second season.
And in an innovative twist, creator, Ryan Murphy plans to run a little role reversal on his returning cast, having them play opposite to their season one roles in new season long story-arc.
"Every year in the series is about a different haunting, so everybody will be playing the opposite of what they played, which is fun," said Murphy at PaleyFest.
A few more details on 'AMH's' second season: there won't be any werewolves or vampires but there will be a lot of Jessica Lange.
"There are so many great genre subsets of horror. Our only rule on the show is no werewolves and no vampires," said Murphy
And in statement to EW, Murphy elaborated on his plans for Lange in season two. "We have designed the second season of 'American Horror Story' completely around her character...This will really be the Jessica Lange show so I’m very excited about it," the 'Glee' creator revealed.
As for Levine, aside from appearing on 'The Voice' and fronting the band, Maroon 5, the rocker helms his own record label, which recently signed 'Glee' star, Matthew Morrison. Should his 'AHS' role materialize, Levine can add "actor" to his already impressive pop culture resume.
