Academy Award nominee, James Cromwell is headed to a mental institution as part of the ever-growing cast of ‘American Horror Story.’ Cromwell is in final talks to play Dr. Arden in the show’s second season, which takes place at an East Coast institution for the criminally insane.

According to Deadline, Arden will “go head-to-head” with Jessica Lange’s character, who runs the facility. Also on board for season two are newcomers, Chloe Sevigny, who’ll play “Shelly the Nymphomaniac,” Maroon 5 frontman/”The Voice” coach, Adam Levine as one half of “The Lovers” and French actress, Lizzie Brochere, in a role inspired by Angelina Jolie’s character in “Girl, Interrupted.”

Original season one cast members Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are also returning in different roles in season two, which presents a new “Horror Story” completely separate from the events in Season 1.

With a cast like this, the sophomore season of Ryan Murphy’s frightful anthology promises to be scary good.
