James Cromwell has joined the second season of FX's American Horror Story. Deadline reports that the Oscar nominee is in talks to join the cast of the hit show. He would star in a 10-episode arc opposite Jessica Lange.
The second season will take place in an East Coast institution for the criminally insane run by Lange’s character. Cromwell will play Dr. Arden, "who works at the institution and goes head-to-head with his boss, played by Oscar winner Lange."
Chloe Sevigny, Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, and French actress Lizzie Brocheré are also new to the cast this season. Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Lily Rabe are returning from season one.
I liked the first season and am looking forward to where the story goes. This will likely continue to be one of the creepiest shows on TV.
