'American Horror Story' Season 2 Adds James Cromwell
That'll do, "American Horror Story." That'll do.
Veteran actor James Cromwell, who is well known for his roles in "Babe" and "The Green Mile," has been cast in season two of "American Horror Story," according to THR. Cromwell will join returning star Jessica Lange as the show does away with the first season's premise and moves to a new location (and possibly a new time period).
Cromwell will be playing Dr. Arden, who works at a (presumably very creepy) insane asylum, while Lange plays the woman in charge of the facility. The two will manage a cast of strange inmates, including Chloe Sevigny, Zachary Quinto, and even "The Voice" mentor and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
Cromwell, an Oscar nominee for his role in "Babe," recently appeared in "The Artist" and has a long movie career behind him. He has also done some great TV as well, appearing in series like "24" and "Six Feet Under," the latter of which earned him an Emmy nomination.
With Lange earning all kinds of nominations for her work on "American Horror Story" last year, you have to wonder if both she and Cromwell could be Emmy-nominated this year for the show. In any case, we should see some pretty great scenes between the two... if we can keep our eyes open after all the scary stuff.
