Oh, those crazy, liberated French. Up until now, sultry 27-year-old Parisian actress Lizzie Brocheré has been largely obscure to American audiences but well-known overseas for bearing all in a number of X-rated foreign features. But according to TV Line's unnamed "insider," Brocheré is ready to cover up that birthday suit for the part of Gia -- Jessica Lange's primary foil -- in this fall's second season of "American Horror Story."

TV Line's story cites earlier casting calls that supposedly requested a ferocious, no-nonsense presence à la Angelina Jolie in "Girl, Interrupted." Ironically, one of Jolie's breakthrough roles was as the title character in HBO's "Gia," a movie in which she herself was frequently nude.
Hopefully, Brocheré and Lange will help scare the pants off "American Horror Story" fans.
Season 2 of "American Horror Story" returns this fall on FX.
