Angelina Jolie's "Girl, Interrupted" role has inspired one of the major characters in "American Horror Story" season 2. The Ryan Murphy-created show is currently looking for an actress to play the arch nemesis for Jessica Lange's character and the casting notice mentions, "...think Angelina Jolie in 'Girl, Interrupted'," when describing the character.
According to TVLine, the regular character named Gia is "a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot who harbors a secret." The FX horror drama series seeks for a Caucasian actress in her mid-20s to take on the role.
Jolie won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Lisa Rowe, a resident in a mental institution, in the 1999 drama film helmed by James Mangold. The movie is based on Susanna Kaysen's memoir and starring Winona Ryder, Brittany Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Moss and Vanessa Redgrave among others.
As for "AHS" season 2, it has been reported to be set in a "horror institution." In addition to Lange, original cast members from season 1 who will return in the next season are Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson. Production is expected to start in mid-July.
