Everyone knows Salma Hayek as a celebrated performer, self-starting producer, one-time 30 Rock guest star, former model, and all-around sex symbol. But the upcoming cringe comedy Beatriz at Dinner will deal her the greatest acting challenge of her career, and possibly change all that in the process. She’s played glamour girls, Frida Kahlo, a physical manifestation of creative inspiration, and now she’ll go harder against type than ever by portraying a normal-looking person. As the title character, decked out with mom jeans and a dowdy haircut, she’ll have to convince audiences that Salma Hayek could be treated like some Plain Jane by people who don’t give her a second glance. It is what we in the business call a “hard sell.”
Last week saw the official unveiling of the Cannes slate of titles In Competition, an exciting time for devotees of art film. It’s like Christmas morning for cinephiles, as the lid is lifted on a treasure trove of new releases from international...
It takes a special brand of viewer to make heads or tails of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story these days, and it seems Hotel and Asylum star Chloe Sevigny isn’t even one of them. Not only did the actress have an “existential crisis” over the violence, but also isn’t certain if she’d be asked back for Season 6.
Not to be confused with the Lifetime Original movie about Lizzie Borden starring Christina Ricci (or the baffling follow-up miniseries), a new untitled thriller about the notorious axe-wielding parent-killer is in the works and has given us two very good reasons to see it: Kristen Stewart and frequent American Horror Story star Chloe Sevigny — don’t get any ideas, Ryan Murphy.
Sure, American Horror Story: Hotel can serve up spooky teasers all the live-long day, but when it comes to footage, FX is finally allowing fans to check in. Ring the bell for your official first look at Season 5, and preview what Sarah Paulson calls the bloodiest, hottest season yet.
The fifth iteration of FX’s American Horror Story hasn’t yet filmed enough Hotel footage for a proper trailer, but Ryan Murphy and the expansive cast took to TCA with plenty of new details on the fall premiere. Not only do we know what each character will be, we’ve also learned that past Horror Story characters will check in over time. Plus, free poster!
Another day, another cast member of American Horror Story: Hotel for Ryan Murphy to break. Where yesterday saw the FX horror guru adding Connie Britton to the world of American Crime, today marks the announcement that Asylum alum Chloe Sevigny will officially check into American Horror Story Season 5, Hotel.
A&E already scored a major success in the original scripted series market with their adapted drama 'Longmire,' let alone the recent success and season 2 renewal of 'Psycho' prequel series 'Bates Motel.' Now, the cable network is doubling down on its original programming pickup with a series order for 'Those Who Kill,' a Danish-adapted murder drama starring 'American Horror Story: Asylum' player Chloe Sevigny.
As viewers of 'American Horror Story: Asylum' well know, mental institutions can be frightening enough without aliens and mutants lurking about, deranged Nazi doctors and bloody-faced killers appearing at every corner. Chloe Sevigny's Shelley the nymphomaniac certainly found this out the hard way in last night's Halloween thriller "Nor'easter," as the good Dr. Arden made sure she wouldn't escape his clutches again, so what does the actress say is next? And will we see any deceased characters again?
Not to be outdone by 'American Horror Story,' (its mostly direct and logical competition) IFC's comedy gem 'Portlandia' will be getting just a bit bigger for season 3, adding actress Chloe Sevigny into the mix with Fred and Carrie. Sevigny was also cast in a recurring role for 'American Horror Story' season 2, so what brings the actress over to the comedy side of things? And how long will she be sticking around before things get weird...er?
