'American Horror Story: Coven' Casts Danny Huston as Jessica Lange's Boyfriend
After playing a nun in the second installment of "American Horror Story", Jessica Lange's character in the upcoming chapter of the thriller series isn't committing a celibacy. In fact, the show has found a love interest for Lange's Fiona.
Landing the role of Fiona's boyfriend, who according to series creator Ryan Murphy is "sexy" and "dangerous," is Danny Huston. The writer shared the news via his Twitter page as tweeting, "Jessica Lange's got a sexy (and dangerous) BF this year: welcome to Coven Mr. Danny Huston!"
Award-winning actor/writer/director Huston has appeared in Martin Scorsese's "The Aviator", Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette" and Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood" among others. His latest film "The Congress" was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 16 and he is currently filming Tim Burton-directed "Big Eyes", which also features Christoph Waltz, Amy Adams, Krysten Ritter and Jason Schwartzman.
"American Horror Story: Coven", set to premiere October 9 on FX, centers on Lange's witch character Fiona, who is determined to protect the Coven when mysterious attacks have been escalating against her kind. Sarah Paulson plays her daughter.
Kathy Bates plays Marie Delphine LaLaurie, or Madame LaLaurie, loosely based on the real-life Louisiana-born socialite infamous for killing and torturing black slaves in the 1830s. She was initially a best friend to Fiona but later turns into her worst enemy.
Angela Bassett is cast as Marie Laveau, a real-life Louisiana Creole woman "in the 1800s who was very influential in the city." She was known as a Voodoo priestess. Taissa Farmiga, who starred in the inaugural season, returns to play a new arrival in New Orleans who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own.
