'American Horror Story' in Talks With Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett EW

"American Horror Story" co-creator Ryan Murphy tells's Inside TV that he has approached both Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett about continuing on the FX show.

"I have approached them and they wanna do it,” Murphy told the publication. He added, “That’s very exciting when you can work with (A) actresses you’ve always idolized and (B) those two are loving this season. They love what they get to do. Kathy Bates sent the writers a basket of plush toys all in the shapes of disemboweled organs. It doesn’t get better than when an Oscar winner sends you a grab bag of stuffed pancreas to say ‘Thank you and job well done.’”

FX recently renewed the show for a fourth season.
