‘American Horror Story’ Season 2 Adds ‘Bourne’ Actress to Over-Stuffed Cast

We don’t…we don’t know when this is going to stop!  Between the obscene amount of big names added to FX’s Ryan Murphy spooker ‘American Horror Story‘ season 2, and the complete lack of any footage or even photos, we’re dying for a peek.  Until then, we’ve learned that yet another famous face will be gracing the halls of season 2′s 1960′s asylum, that of ‘The Bourne Identity‘ co-star Franka Potente.

‘American Horror Story’ season 2 has grown once again, as TVLine has learned that that ‘Bourne’ trilogy star Franka Potente is the latest name to be added to the already-expansive cast.  According to the report, the ‘Run Lola Run’ star will portray a “mysterious patient” of the mental institution in which the season takes its setting.  Boy, if that isn’t descriptive.

Potente is the latest to join the ‘American Horror Story’ season 2 cast, a ludicrously luminescent roster that already includes ‘Step Up’ star (and Channing Tatum’s wife) Jenna Dewan, ‘Carnivale’ star Clea DuVall, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man‘ star Chris Zylka, Americanized ‘Skins’ star Britne Oldford, ‘Big Love’ star Chloe Sevigny, ‘The Voice‘s Adam Levine, French actress Lizzie Brochere, Joseph Fiennes and James Cromwell.

Also returning from the first season are Jessica Lange, newly-minted 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 in the show’s rebooted 1960′s asylum setting, which Lange’s character presides over.

What say you?  Do you think Franka Potente has the frank potential to spook things up?  Are you excited for ‘American Horror Story’ season 2,’ and its many stars, or would you have preferred the same characters from season 2?  Tell us what you think in the comment below!
