Kathy Bates joins 'American Horror Story'
Oscar-winning actress to play Jessica Lange's nemesis
Season 3 of "American Horror Story" just got a lot more exciting.
Oscar and Emmy-winning actress Kathy Bates is joining the cast and will play Jessica Lange's enemy, TVLine reports. Bates and Lange's characters will start out as friends and the relationship will sour.
It's not yet known who Lange -- another Oscar and Emmy winner -- will play or what Season 3 is about, for that matter. Creator Ryan Murphy has only said the new season will revolve around Lange's character and the plot will be alien-free, historical in nature, include a romance and have a lighter tone.
Bates, who is best known for her Academy-Award winning turn in "Misery," is the only non-returning "American Horror Story" star to be added thus far. Earlier this year, it was announced the new season would include "AHS" alums Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe and Frances Conroy.
"American Horror Story" Season 3 returns fall 2013.
as a big collector of classic horror and sci fi sorry but this show isn't worth watching. nothing on tv can even compare to twilight zone or
thriller or alfred hitchcock presents! two reasons is the writing sucks and there aren't any really good actors anymore! kathy bates is one
of the few left so maybe i'll give it another chance but i doubt it's still worth watching.
LOVE this show! Jessica Lange is amazing and it will be great to see Kathy Bates do her stuff !
