The next installment of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: 1984 won’t be released until September, but Ryan’s already got his hair and wardrobe departments working overtime creating some peak ‘80s looks for the cast. And since the cast for season 10 does not include Dame Joan Collins, I’d understand if you skipped this post entirely. However, if you do stay, you will be treated/exposed to Matthew Morrison’s enormous bulge (rubber, I’m sure) almost slipping out of his tiny mustard colored terrycloth shorts.
Queer mafia leader Ryan Murphy better get down on his knees and thank Gay Jesus, because his #1 star is returning to the show that made him great. Variety reports that, during the TCA summer press tour on Friday, American Horror Story’s second-in-command Sarah Paulson announced that Jessica Lange would be returning to the show for its eighth season, AHS: Apocalypse. She’ll be reprising her role as Season One’s nosy neighbor and grandmother of evil, Constance Langdon. So we won’t get the classic “knotty pinnnnneeee?!?!“, but we might get withering put-downs to ghost maids and burnt people. Good enough!
Ryan Murphy Has Somehow Managed To Nab The Biggest Star In The World For The Next “American Horror Story”
Alternate title: Dame Joan Collins To Save “American Horror Story”!!
The following so-called famous people have been in past seasons of American Horror Story: Jessica Lange, Connie Britton, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Joseph Fiennes, Sarah Paulson, Matt Bomer, Lady Gaga, James Cromwell, Cuba Gooding Jr., Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts, and Michael Chiklis. But AHS could never say that it was filled with blinding star power until now.
The Hollywood Reporter did a big profile on Ryan Murphy’s $300 million Netflix deal, and he dropped a few little nuggets. He’s thinking of doing a Barbra Streisand/Lady Gaga variety show (no, thank you), he’s contemplating a wellness show (another “no thanks” to GOOP TV), says that American Crime Story: Katrina is still in the works, and that an ACS season of the Monica Lewinsky/Clinton scandal has been canceled. (Ryan doesn’t think it’s his place to tell Monica’s story, and will only do it if she’s a producer and will get money out of it.) Buried in Ryan’s THR profile is a stage 10 bombshell: Dame Joan Collins is going to be in the next season of American Horror Story. THR probably buried the lede, because if they put it in the headline, their site would’ve crashed.
The trailer for American Horror Story: Cult dropped yesterday, and, no, it wasn’t just a film of Hillary Clinton’s supporters sipping a giant vat of Sleepy-Tea to slumber on through the next four years. Instead, that shit begins in Michigan on Election Night 2016. You know, that state everyone knew HRC had on lock, so she didn’t even bother to visit. Welp, we know how that turned out: HORRIBLE. Thus, Ryan Murphy knew nothing would be spookier reliving that shit. Only, he could make it spookier…WITH CLOWNS!
Everybody’s least favorite exhibitionist and notorious over-sharer Lena Dunham will have a role on the next season of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. Ryan announced the unexpected casting choice yesterday via Twitter.
Sure, blame it on the booze! Entirety of television owner Ryan Murphy admitted he was just a little bit tipsy when he went on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live last week and told that annoying but kind of hot (don’t judge) Andy Cohen that the next season of American Horror Story would be about the 2016 election. Ryan even hinted that Donald Trump might be a character.
Despite that being a valid topic for a show about abject horror, Ryan nows says that he was shittoed and exaggerating.
