Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s FX drama pilot "American Horror Story" is getting a script revision after an Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner has been signed to join the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Jessica Lange will play Constance, a neighbor to a couple who move into a creepy San Francisco home, the story says. Lange’s character has a daughter with Down syndrome, who knows more about the house than people realize, the article says.
With Lange’s casting, Murphy and Falchuk are revising their script to expand her role. The project marks Lange’s first series commitment, the piece notes.
Lange joins Connie Britton and Denis O’Hare, who have been previously cast.
