It sounds like we're in for quite a wild ride with Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story: Asylum. A bunch of new character photos and details have been released for you to check out. I'll throw out a *Spoiler Warning* for those that don't want to know anything, but if you didn't want to know, then you wouldn't have clicked through to read the article and see the pictures.
We know the series takes place in an insane asylum in the 60's that's run by a nun, but what we didn't know is that is will also include aliens, Nazis, and a serial killer named Bloody Face who wears a mask made out of his victims skin along with black nightie and opera length gloves.
Whoa, I got to say, I wasn't expecting that. I was expecting craziness, but Aliens and Nazi's? Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine has a part in the series and had this to say in a recent interview with EW,
It is absolutely terrifying. Very gruesome. And what’s great about the fact that it’s on FX is that you can go too far. You can do really unorthodox, crazy things that people are going to talk about.
Murphy explains that he added things to the series that he's affriad of saying,
I don’t think people tune in to the show because they want My Dinner With Andre. I think they want to be scared. I’m just writing what I would like to see. I’m scared of aliens and I’m scared of Nazis and I’m scared of nuns. So it’s the perfect stew of horror and fear.
He goes on to explain what their plan for this series is,
Every year of the show is a different miniseries, and there will be several chapters. You need as your leading man or leading lady an institution to haunt. To me, last year was a family drama. This is our version of a workplace drama.
This is going to be one hell of a crazy season. It already sounds like it going to be even more jacked up than the first season... I can't wait! It's set to premiere on FX in October. Check out the character photos and descriptions below.
Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) - A nun who's more sadistic than saintly.
Dr. Thredson (Zachary Quinto) - A psychiatrist whose forward-thinking ways conflict with Sister Jude's management style.
Dr. Arden (James Cromwell) - The mutated humans lurk in the forest outside of the institution, the Raspers, are a product of Arden's diabolical experiments on Briarcliff's inmates. Oh, and Arden may or may not be a Nazi.
Sister Eunice (Lily Rabe) - Eunice may seem to be a bit dense, but Rabe promises there's more to her.
Monsignor Timothy O'Hara (Joseph Fiennes) - Sister Jude's superior finds himself on the receiving end of the nun's affections (and fantasies), but he's not entirely innocent. Not unlike the red lingerie under Jude's habit, there are dark intentions under Msgr. O'Hara's grace and piety.
Leo (Adam Levine) - Will play one half of a newlywed couple visiting modern-day Briarcliff. If you thought Rubber Man was a formidable foe, wait until you meet the Big Bad whose attention Leo draws.
Teresa (Jenna Dewan Tatum) - She may look fierce here, but something tells us it won't be long before she'll be screaming in terror.
Kit (Evan Peters) - One of the newest Briarcliff inmates, Kit is committed after being accused of murdering his wife (played by Britne Olford), though he claims she was abducted — and not by humans.
Lana (Sarah Paulson) - Lesbian journalist Lana is committed to the asylum by her own girlfriend after she nearly exposes Briarcliff's darkest secrets.
Shelley (Chloë Sevigny) - Nymphomaniac inmate.
