In the year 1999 the two somewhat iconic films, American Beauty and American Pie, launched model and actress Mena Suvari into the public eye. You’ll see her next in another American title, American Horror Story. Imagine that!
Suvari is coming to the oh so scary new series as a lady with some sort of connection to the Harmon house. The character’s nickname is super spooky. It’s The Black Dahlia. Say what? Yes, you heard me. The Black Dahlia, as I’m sure you know from the movies about her, was the high-profile murder victim circa 1947. You know, the murder that was never really solved.

Analysis: Two years ago British filmmaker Duncan Jones delivered his indie debut feature "Moon", a little seen but critically acclaimed sci-fi tale that was essentially Sam Rockwell acting alone or against himself. It was fresh, innovative, somber and overall heralded the arrival of a director to watch out for. After failing to secure funding for his next project, Jones quickly hopped onto the helm of this high-concept action/time travel blockbuster.
