In a recent interview with MTV, AMERICAN HORROR STORY writer, Tim Minear, dished out some details about Jessica Lange’s and Adam Levine’s characters:
“She’s not playing this kind of ersatz Tennessee Williams character this time,” “AHS” writer Tim Minear told MTV News about Lange in season two. “She’s playing something that’s a little more East Coast, a little more patrician.”
While she was a bit of a darkly motivated, self-involved floozy in season one, her new backstory seems to paint a different picture for the character. “She’s playing a nun,” he said. “She’s playing an administrator of a facility. It’s different. In this instance, she’s a bride of Christ.”
Most of you are aware that the entire storyline and setting and even the era is changing in the second season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY. Season two takes place in the 1960s on the East Coast with a mental institution as the setting and ground zero for all the creepiness. Lange is still going to be a central character, but her character’s motivations will be completely different.
“Let’s say that Adam’s character is kind of a nod to contemporary sensibilities, as opposed to something from the mid-century,” Minear noted.
When asked whether there’s any chance that the infamous Season 1 “Murder House” might make a cameo, Minear responded:
“I wouldn’t rule anything out.”
