Emma Roberts is the new name to add to ever expanding cast of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Coven. The FX show will return in the fall, and I expect we haven’t even begun the casting updates on this puppy.
The cast now includes Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, Patti Lupone, Gabourey Sidibe and Lily Rabe. »

We are big fans of the trend by directors and showrunners to report their casting news on Twitter, and American Horror Story: Coven‘s showrunner Ryan Murphy is definitely a proponent. He recently took to the Twitterverse to make a particularly wonderful double casting announcement:

TVLine has followed up that announcement with the news that Emma Roberts is close to sealing the deal on her inclusion in the growing cast as well, and that she will be taking on the role of Madison, a self-involved party girl.
No further word on the roles or their duration or, for that matter, what’s in store for us with the new iteration of American Horror Story, but we’re planning on Coven being just as freaky as the first and second seasons. »

Well, someone out there in TV land obviously loves horror as much as we do as the 2013 Critics' Choice Awards nominees have been announced, and a lot of our favorites are included.
Excerpts from the Press Release:

Emma Roberts, who most recently starred in Fox pilot Delirium, is nearing a deal to join American Horror Story: Coven, our sister site TVLine reports. Roberts (Scream 4) will play a self-involved party girl named Madison. She’ll join previously announced Oscar winner Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe for Season 3. »
- THE DEADLINE TEAM
TV Line is reporting that Roberts is nearing a deal to join the drama, which will take place at least partially in New Orleans and focus on witches -- at least, that's what fans are inferring based off of the title for the season. There aren't a lot of actual details just yet.
If she signs on, Roberts will join a hot list of stars who are appearing in "Coven," including her real-life boyfriend Evan Peters.
Which actors do you think might be the witches and which ones might be the witches' targets? »
Much like the first two seasons of American Horror Story, creator Ryan Murphy only gives out show details in tiny little morsels, so we don't have any info on who Roberts will play. But let's play the logic game. Traditional witch covens consist of 12 women, right? We already have confirmation that Ahs alums Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Taissa Farmiga will be in season three, and other announced actresses are Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe. With Roberts, that makes 10 females for season three. So is it safe to assume we will see at least two more major female roles announced? Probably more, because everyone on the show can't be a witch. »

The third annual Critics' Choice Television Awards features what is becoming the awards' signature mix of no-brainer and under-the-radar nominees.
"Big Bang" and "American Horror Story: Asylum" lead the nominees with six apiece. "Parks and Recreation" and Sundance's miniseries "Top of the Lake" have five each. There were a couple of surprise omissions too: "Mad Men" was shut out of the best drama nominees, and of the cast only Elisabeth Moss scored an acting nomination. Ditto for "Modern Family" on the comedy side; Sarah Hyland was the only cast member nominated.
Here's the full list of nominees:

American Horror Story has cast Emma Roberts in the upcoming witch-centric, New Orleans–set third season. According to TVLine, Roberts — whose Fox pilot didn't get picked up — will play a "self-involved party girl." She joins Ahs returning cast members Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Francis Conroy, and Jessica Lange, as well as fellow new members of the fold Gabourey Sidibe, Kathy Bates, Angela Basset, and Patti Lupone. Ahs: Coven doesn't start up until October, but baffling horrors and disfiguring surprises surround us at all times. »

Scream 4‘s Emma Roberts is the latest addition to the cast of American Horror Story: Coven. While character information has been mostly kept a secret, TVLine learned that she’ll be playing Madison, “a self-involved party girl.”
We recently reported that Precious star Gabourey Sidibe will be joining the cast, along with Kathy Bates, who will be a major part of the third season. Angela Bassett and Patti LuPone are also new additions, but we have no details on who they’ll be playing at this time. A number of actors from past seasons will return to play new characters, including Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Evan Peters. The cast is still coming together, so we’re definitely expecting a few more of the past actors to make an appearance.
Filming of American Horror Story: Coven will take place in New Orleans and multiple unannounced locations. »

Roberts, who recently filmed a Fox pilot titled "Dellirium," is currently dating "American Horror Story" star Evan Peters. Peters will return for "Coven" alongside familiar "Ahs" faces Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Taissa Farmiga.
Though we don't know much about "American Horror Story: Coven," we do know it'll be witch centric, as the title indicates, and parts of the season will be set in New Orleans.
