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. »

Emma Roberts is nearing a deal to join FX's "American Horror Story: Coven," a network spokesman told TheWrap on Wednesday. The "Scream 4" star is set to portray a character named Madison, who is described as a self-involved party girl. No additional details were made available at this time.

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. »

FX is welcoming another member into its coven. Emma Roberts is joining the third-season cast of American Horror Story: Coven, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Details on which character the actress will play are being kept under wraps other than the fact she's a party girl. Photos: 'American Horror Story': The Spookiest Set on TV While little is known about the witch-themed season three of American Horror Story, producers said at PaleyFest in March that the series would again search for haunted places in America.

Nominations were announced Wednesday morning for the third annual Critic’s Choice Television Awards. Proving there is nothing television critics love more than nerds and Ryan Murphy, The Big Bang Theory and American Horror Story: Asylum tied for most nominated program with six noms each. HBO and FX lead the network pack with 21 and 19 nominations, respectively. While Parks And Rec, Game Of Thrones, New Girl, Louie, The Americans, and Breaking Bad were among the shows earning multiple nominations, Modern Family and Mad Men each earned only one acting nod. Modern Family has won the Best Comedy Emmy three »
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.

Scream 4 star Emma Roberts is the latest star to sign up for the third installment of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story—this year subtitled Coven. Roberts will play a party girl named Madison, according to TVLine, which first broke the news.
Roberts will be joining her real-life boyfriend Evan Peters on the series along with Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Patti Lupone, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Frances Conroy. Murphy has also worked with Emma’s aunt, Julia Roberts, previously on Eat Pray Love and will be directing her in his adaptation of The Normal Heart for HBO. »

A conservative and notoriously anti-gay group is claiming responsibility for the cancellation of the NBC series "The New Normal."
Joe. My. God cites an email sent to him from Monica Cole, the leader of One Million Moms, who writes, "Our persistence has paid off once again! 'The New Normal' got the axe by NBC after the show’s first and only season!"
"One Million Moms continues to fight for the moral values that have served our country so well for so long," she concludes. "We do so without apology."

It's upfronts week in the wide world of television, which means a whole bunch of critics are locked in a room with all the big networks, watching TV pilots and asking questions and trying to memorize this fall's primetime schedule. It also means that network execs — most of whom aren't on Twitter fielding questions all the days and all the nights like their showrunners and writers — have to do the tough work of answering questions about their current TV lineups. Fox boss Kevin Reilly has mostly been answering questions about how come Bones and American Idol are never going to die, but today he dropped some hints about the next two seasons of Glee to Collider.com.
I don’t want to say that we’re marching towards an end. We have two more seasons, which speaks to the confidence of the show and how important »
Based on a feature script penned by Michael Lannan, the untitled eight-episode series centers on the three Bay Area friends enjoying what life has to offer a new generation of gay men. Murray Bartlett (Guiding Light) and Frankie J. Alvarez (Smash) co-star, with Andrew Haigh (Gladiator), David Marshall Grant (Brothers & Sisters) and Sarah Condon (Bored to Death) exec-producing.

Now, we don't actually know for sure that these two ladies are playing witches, but we sure hope so. They would make excellent dark arts practitioners, we think.
The two award-winning actresses join the previously-announced new faces Kathy Bates and Gabourey Sidibe, plus returning actors as returning cast members Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange. We also know the witchy season will be filming, at least in part, in New Orleans.
"American Horror Story: Coven" will premiere in October on FX.
I’m beginning to feel frustration toward Ryan Murphy and his methods of announcing news for his many ongoing projects. Yes, it’s nice he keeps in touch with his fans via Twitter and feels comfortable using his account as a medium to dole out secrets and announcements for shows like American Horror Story. But with only 140 characters at his disposal, his tweets always come off as wanting, failing to give the same amount of explanation an official announcement would include. Is this really something worth complaining about? Not likely, but when Murphy teased the latest hires for American Horror Story, he left me little else to talk about.
So just who has Murphy revealed will be joining the cast of American Horror Story: Coven? His Twitter claimed Oscar nominee Angela Bassett and Tony winner Patti luPone were courted into taking roles in the much-talked about horror anthology series. I »

No word yet on who Lupone and Bassett will be playing on "American Horror Story: Coven," but the Tony winner and Oscar nominee respectively join a very impressive cast. In addition to "American Horror Story" repeat players Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe and Frances Conroy, "Coven" adds Oscar winner Kathy Bates, who will play Lange's character's best friend who becomes her worst enemy and "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe.

The casting bonanza for FX’s new session of American Horror Story (subtitled Coven) has begun. Two more names have been added to the cast: Angela Bassett (ER, Malcolm X, Contact) and Patti LuPone (Oz, Driving Miss Daisy, 30 Rock). All we know about Ryan Murphy’s next installment is that it involves witches, Kathy Bates as the big bad, and promises to be female heavy. Just look at the cast cobbled together so far.
LuPone and Bassett join Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe and Lily Rabe in the horror ensemble. They’ll return to FX in the fall. »

Ryan Murphy is assembling quite a powerful group of women to round out the cast of American Horror Story: Coven, the third installment of his FX anthology series. The Ahs co-creator took to Twitter yesterday to announce that Angela Bassett and Patti LuPone would both be joining the third season, set to debut in October and believed to center around witches.

The news about the networks fall schedules is coming hot and fast now. CBS has picked up the James Van Der Beek sitcom Friends With Better Lives, about a group of friends who each think the others have better lives. Really quite literal in terms of title. It’s multi-camera, which tends to be my personal preference on comedies, even if it’s out of style.
Roger Federer and Andy Murray were both asked yesterday what they thought about an out tennis player, and both were confident tennis could handle it. Federer said “I don’t think it would be a problem. We’re very relaxed. We don’t play a team sport and see each other all the time. … We’re very open. So whatever happens, happens.

"It's kind of bittersweet... Well, I wouldn't call it bittersweet but I have mixed feelings because I do think that I wasn't necessarily expecting it to get picked up but I do think that we accomplished quite a bit in one season," he explained. "I'm absolutely proud and honored to have been a part of that series and to have worked with Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler and all of the cast and crew who did a beautiful job. When we started the show we had a very specific conversation »

As is creator Ryan Murphy's way, it is not confirmed that the recently booked actresses are going to be witches in the upcoming season of American Horror Story, but with a subtitle of Coven and a largely female cast, I'm playing the odds here.
First up is Angela Bassett, best known for her Academy Award-nominated portrayal of Tina Turner in What's Love Got to Do With It. Films that FEARnet readers are likely more familiar with include Critters 4, Innocent Blood, Boyz in the Hood, and Malcolm X.
Next is Patti LuPone. Best known for her work on Broadway (she won Tonys for roles in Evita and Gypsy and starred in Broadway productions of Sweeny Todd and Les Miserables, among others), LuPone has appeared in films (Summer of Sam and Heist to name a few) and had memorable guest roles on TV shows like 30 Rock.
