‘Ocean’s Eight,’ the all-female heist comedy spinoff of Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Ocean’s Eleven,’ might be getting another new cast member. For the past few weeks the film has been collecting star after star like a poker player scooping up thousand-dollar chips, and multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Sarah Paulson is the most recent to be in talks to join the fun.
Ryan Murphy may be juggling a handful of projects at the moment, but his new anthology series ‘Feud’ is shaping up to have quite a fantastic cast.
Earlier this week, the mystery surrounding American Horror Story Season 6 got a bit more complex, as FX boss John Landgraf revealed that the majority of existing teasers have deliberately misdirected fans on the theme. Now, a new official promo points in an intriguing direction, but we have to ask – did FX shoot itself in the foot with this “misdirect” approach?
FX bosses have made clear that American Crime Story would plumb a broader criminal focus than The People v. O.J. Simpson, noting early on that Hurricane Katrina would form Season 2's main story. Now, we know the as-yet-untitled follow-up will take advantage of additional episodes, casting some of the nation’s most notable figures.
The moment American Crime Story indicated Season 2 would follow The People v. O.J. Simpson with a focus on Hurricane Katrina, we knew the series had a broad definition of “crime.” In fact, FX bosses don’t want to return future seasons to a courtroom anytime soon, nor would they revisit any of the famed O.J. Simpson participants. Sorry, Sarah Paulson.
American Horror Story is nowhere near finished clawing at you last nerve with Season 6's mystery approach, but they wouldn’t dream of a season without undeniable icon and Emmy nominee Sarah Paulson, right? Thankfully, FX knows at at least that much, setting Paulson’s return for American Horror Story Season 6.
The absurd amount of work Sarah Paulson pulled double-duty between The People v. O.J. Simpson and American Horror Story: Hotel will surely pay off come Emmy-time, but can she do it all over again? Sources say the actor is ready to don her next wig for the Katrina-set American Crime Story Season 2, along with several others.
The O.J. Simpson trial was a cultural milestone for an entire generation. Just as our parents and grandparents remember where they were when JFK was assassinated, many of us can recall with distinct clarity where we were when Simpson notoriously fled the police in a white Bronco with a gun to his head. The media coverage was breathlessly sensational, but there is nothing sensationalized about The People v. O.J. Simpson, the flagship season of Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story, which is undoubtedly the very best thing Murphy has ever produced.
FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson will undoubtedly milk a connection to Ryan Murphy’s more Horror-bent branch, but rest assured, the new series won’t veer so hard into crazy camp. Then again, You might not know it by the latest People v. O.J. Simpson trailer and sneak peek.
If the inhuman hilarity of John Travolta’s wig weren’t enough to whet your appetite for FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, the latest photos should more than make up the difference. Submitted to the court, observe the following exhibits.
