‘American Horror Story’ Season 2: Jessica Lange Revealed as a…

American Horror Story Season 2 Jessica Lange

In spite of the increasingly large and high-profile cast, there’s still relatively little we know about the second season of FX’s Ryan Murphy spook-fest ‘American Horror Story.’  Sure, it’ll take place in the past and focus around a mental institution, but with so may people populating the cast, who will they all play?  Recently, a bit of news on Jessica Lange’s character seems to change the game in a big way…

Following an MTV interview with ‘American Horror Story’ writer Tim Minear, we’ve learned a few new details on Jessica Lange’s character, previously revealed to be the administrator of the second season’s hospital setting.  On top of that, and the character standing opposed to Lange’s season 1 Constance Langdon, we now know that Lange’s character will actually be a nun!  Says Minear:

She’s not playing this kind of ersatz Tennessee Williams character this time.  She’s playing something that’s a little more East Coast, a little more patrician.  She’s playing a nun.  She’s playing an administrator of a facility.  It’s different.  In this instance, she’s a bride of Christ.

Joining Lange for the second season of FX’s breakout hit are Americanized ‘Skins’ star Britne Oldford, ‘Big Love’ star Chloe Sevigny, ‘The Voice‘s Adam Levine, French actress Lizzie Brochere, Joseph Fiennes and James Cromwell. Returning from the first season are Lange, upgraded to series regular Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe. As previously reported, all will be playing new characters independent of the first season.

What say you?  Does news of Lange’s character being a nun change your opinion of ‘American Horror Story’ season 2?  Tell us what you’re expecting to see when the second season drops this fall in the comments!
