First Hard Details Emerge Regarding American Horror Story Season 2“American Horror Story” co-creator Ryan Murphy recently dished the first real details we’ve seen for the show’s second season, including its location, time frame, and what some old and new faces will be doing once the spookery begins!

[Season 2] is set on the East Coast at an institution for the criminally insane that is run by Jessica [Lange],” Murphy said on April 18th during a panel promoting the series at the TV Academy in North Hollywood.

In addition, the second season will find the cast in a new era, Murphy said. “It’s a completely different world and has nothing to do with Season 1; there’s not a mention of Season 1,” he noted. “The second season is set in a completely different time period.

Murphy then teased that there could also be more familiar faces from Season 1 set to take on new characters when the series returns in the fall, with a few possibly in attendance Wednesday. “The idea is to work with actors that you love and are excited by. The second season, everybody who was announced, there will be other people up on this stage who are not announced who will also be in it but are playing the polar opposite of what they were in the first season in every way,” he said.

Murphy was joined on stage by cast members including Connie Britton (Vivien), Dylan McDermott (Ben), Alexandra Breckenridge (Moira), Denis O’Hare (Larry), Evan Peters (Tate), Zachary Quinto (Chad), Jessica Lange (Constance), Lily Rabe (Nora); co-creator Brad Falchuk; and executive producer Dante Di Loreto.

The producers were also tight-lipped on whether or not Quinto could play one of the criminally insane, only saying “maybe,” while the Star Trek actor — who was sporting Spock eyebrows — embraced the opportunity to do something new. “The notion of coming back and playing something totally different and in a totally different world with many of the same actors, it’s probably one of the more exciting things that has come across my plate in recent years,” he said. “I’m really looking forward to it.

As for new cast member Adam Levine, Murphy revealed that “The Voice” judge signed on immediately after hearing of the role. “He’s a sexy guy so he needs to play a sexy guy, but the guy that is different than who you think he would play,” he said. “I pitched him the part and he listened, slack jawed, and simply said, ‘I’m in.’ The second season is fun, sexy and baroque. It has a lot of meat to it; it’s a really gritty part. He’s with a girl, and they play characters called The Lovers.

More details — including whether or not French actress Lizzie Brochere will play a nemesis for Lange’s character — could emerge soon as producers are set to present their vision for Season 2 to FX next week.

Stay tuned.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!
