Revealing that Lange is playing an administrator of a facility, Tim Minear says her new character is 'a little more patrician' than in the first season.
More details on Jessica Lange's role in "American Horror Story" season 2 have been shared by one of the men behind the show. Speaking to MTV, writer Tim Minear spilled, "She's playing a nun. She's playing an administrator of a facility," before gushing, "She's a bride of Christ."
Insisting that Lange's character in the upcoming season is different from the one she portrayed in the first season, Minear explained, "She's not playing this kind of ersatz Tennessee Williams character this time." He further detailed, "She's playing something that's a little more East Coast, a little more patrician."
The scribe, however, was more vague when describing Adam Levine's character, who has been said as one half of "The Lovers." "Let's say that Adam's character is kind of a nod to contemporary sensibilities, as opposed to something from the mid-century," he coyly said.
Levine himself recently dished on his "AHS" role during an interview with E! Online. "I'm newly married and I go with my wife on our honeymoon," the Maroon 5 frontman shared. "I don't want to tell you too much and it and actually I should shut my mouth because [Ryan Murphy] will freak out, but it's gory."
The second season of the hit FX show will be set in the 1960s at an institution for the criminally insane on the East Coast. In addition to Lange, original actors from the first season who will return on the horror series are Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lily Rabe.
