After an onslaught of news concerning the second season forAmerican Horror Story, the casting and other tidbits have noticably slowed as the month progressed. Still in the writing stages, the series’ second year has a little longer to go before they actually start filming, and there’s bound to be plenty of more information to go as the season forms. Now, in an update to a previous casting notice, the series has found an antagonist for the upcoming new episodes in the form of a French actress.
TV Line reports that Lizzie Brochere will play a series regular, who is a currently untitled arch-nemesis to Jessica Lange’s main character.
The role was previously described as “a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot,” compared to Angelina Jolie’s character in Girl, Interrupted. Now, however, it seems that has changed. The article claims that Brochere’s casting has brought on a revamped version of the role, that will still take elements from the described character, but won’t fully live up to the casting notice’s description.
All that’s currently known about the second season of the hit FX horror drama is that it will take place in an East Coast “horror institution” with Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Lily Rabe all returning as new characters in the anthological series. Adam Levine was recently being signed as one half of a male duo called “The Lovers”, which some speculate Quinto’s character could be the second-half of, though it’s unconfirmed.
American Horror Story is set to return this October.
