The 18 Stars Who Keep Popping Up on American Horror Story

24 March 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

American Horror Story switches up its spooky theme each year, but there are usually a handful of recurring actors. Series staples like Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, and Sarah Paulson have appeared every season - except the upcoming one. Lange recently announced her exit from the show, and Murphy is switching things up for the new season, introducing fresh actors (and yes, a few familiar ones) for Hotel. We've gotten caught up theorizing how all the seasons are connected, but before we get too ahead of ourselves, let's revisit all the characters played by our favorite repeat offenders, shall we? »

Connie Britton joins Ryan Murphy’s O.J. Simpson series American Crime Story

24 March 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Writer/director Ryan Murphy and Connie Britton must have enjoyed working together on American Horror Story because the duo are collaborating again on his upcoming Ahs companion series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Last night Murphy tweeted the news saying, “Excited to announce my friend Connie Britton will play Faye Resnick” in the first season of his upcoming, highly-anticipated true crime miniseries. If you can remember that far back, Resnick was a friend of Nicole Brown Simpson who, as a result of her reported drug-related debts, became involved in the case when O.J.’s defense team argued they prompted hit men to murder Simpson and Goldman.

Britton is now the second American Horror Story vet, along with Sarah Paulson (to play Marcia Clark), to join the show. Also onboard for the series are David Schwimmer playing Simpson’s good friend and attorney Robert Kardashian, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, »

Britton will play Faye Resnick in the upcoming FX miniseries, which also stars John Travolta as Robert Shapiro; David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian; Courtney Vance as Johnnie Cochran; Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark; and Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson.

Britton recently commented that she would “love” to return to Murphy’s “American Horror Story” franchise (she headlined its first season) if the scheduling worked out — but will make a more grounded reappearance in the new 10-episode true crime series, which is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. »

23 March 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Jessica Lange Shading Lady Gaga Is Why the Internet Was Created

20 March 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

“Shade” is not a word on my radar, and I don’t care when people throw it or get it. (Peace and love and butterflies all day, guys). But this clip of Jessica Lange literally rejecting the thought of Lady Gaga with her body, is the best thing I’ve seen in my 24 years of life.

The American Horror Story goddess broke our hearts when confirming she won’t return for season 5. And sorry, but if you thought Gaga getting cast would convince her to stay you’re completely mistaken. At the Ahs PaleyFest panel, moderator Tim Stack asked Lange as much when she almost started convulsing, only to reply, “What does that mean? I don’t understand the question.” Not a very good week for Gaga, huh?

This is how it went down. First was utter disbelief. “Did this guy really just go there?”

Then came the realization that yep, »

Watch Jessica Lange Throws Supreme Levels of Shade at Lady Gaga Over 'American Horror Story: Hotel'

19 March 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

American Horror Story: Being on the Receiving End of Jessica Lange’s Shade.

Unfortunately, we won’t be watching that show this year; we’re getting Ahs: Hotel instead. But Jessica Lange teased what the former could have been during Paleyfest’s Freak Show panel, when asked if Lady Gaga joining the cast had made her reconsider retiring.

News: Stephen Sondheim says Lady Gaga’s Oscar tribute was a “travesty”

Gawker’s Rich Juzwiak was the first to point this moment out, what he calls a “masterwork” in “shade, shade, and more shade.” The question comes from a fan and, while clumsily worded -- “Does Gaga convince you to stay for another season?” Lange is certainly smart enough to deduce what it means.

It only gets better from there: She basically goes full Lucille Bluth, before licking her lips and saying, “No, you know-- When, um-- Well.” And then she just giggles.

From a musical first on Horror Story to a post-Glee comedy with a deadly twist, Ryan Murphy's list of small screen hits is about to get even longer.

Et sat with the busiest producer in television to get exclusive new details on Lady Gaga's American Horror Story debut, the shocking Scream Queens twist no one knows about, and why John Travolta is bringing the "wow" factor to American Crime Story.

‘American Horror Story’ Cast Imagines Future Seasons at PaleyFest Closing Night

16 March 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The closing night of PaleyFest 2015 was an occasion to get freaky, as the cast of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” gathered with fans to celebrate the success of the past season and to look ahead to “Ahs: Hotel.”

Prior to the panel, Ryan Murphy’s band of merry players walked the red carpet to the tune of hundreds of screaming fans. Some of the stars even revealed which possible season themes would most terrify them.

“I was thinking they should do ‘American Horror Story: Space,’” said Finn Wittrock, who played the twisted rich boy Dandy on “Freak Show.” Why? “Because that’s terrifying. No oxygen, no sound, dead in a second. It would be a short one.”

How Sarah Paulson Almost Spilled the American Horror Story–Lady Gaga Beans

2 March 2015 11:44 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At Saturday's Family Equality Council Gala in Beverly Hills, Sarah Paulson let it slip that she almost let something else slip: the big news that Lady Gaga will be starring in next season's American Horror Story. Why? Because it's so cool: "I think nothing in the world could be more exciting. Really ... it's Lady Fucking Gaga! I mean, come on. It's amazing." Now we know that we can trust Paulson with our deepest, darkest secrets — or at least Ryan Murphy can: "I had a bit of an inkling, because the man told me, but I kept it a secret." Well, we can trust her for a few days, at least: "I finally said to him the other day, 'If you don't announce this soon, I'm going to bust. I'm going to say something!' And he was like, 'You can't.' And I was like, 'Well, I'm going to. So »
