Ryan Murphy is wheeling out the big guns to fill the asylum rooms in his second season of "American Horror Story." It's been confirmed that "All My Children's" Mark Consuelos will be the latest inmate in the FX horror anthology.
If sources can be believed, former New York Giants star Michael Strahan is slated to become the next permanent co-host of “Live! With Kelly,” with Kelly Ripa, seen here with husband Mark Consuelos.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Mark Consuelos, husband to Kelly Ripa, will have a recurring role on the hit series as Spivey, a patient at the East Coast institution for the criminally insane. Why his character is institutionalized has not been revealed.
The last season of "American Horror Story" took place at a "murder home" in California. This season co-creator Ryan Murphy has decided to switch up the whole show with a new setting and new characters. The second season of "American Horror Story" will take place in a horrific institution for the criminally insane on the East Coast in the 1960's. Season one star Jessica Lange will be returning to play a nun that runs the institution.
Besides Lange, Consuelos will be joining other season one veterans Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Zachary Quinto.
New to season two are Lizzie Brochere, Adam Levine, James Cromwell, Chris Zylka, Joseph Fiennes and Chloe Sevigny. Check out the list below to see who the newcomers to "American Horror Story" will be playing in the highly anticipated second season.
According to Entertainment Weekly, "American Horror Story" will begin production this week. Season two will air this October.
Lizzie Brochere -- French actress Lizzie Brochere has been cast as Gia, a "fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot."
Adam Levine -- Maroon 5 singer and "Voice" judge Adam Levine will be playing one half of a couple called "The Lovers." The other half of "The Lovers" is currently unknown.
James Cromwell -- Emmy and Oscar nominee James Cromwell will join the "American Horror Story" cast as Dr. Arden, who works at the East Coast institution for the criminally insane. Jessica Lange's character is said to be a boss to Dr. Arden, and they will reportedly butt heads.
Chris Zylka -- Formerly of the CW's "The Secret Circle," Chris Zylka was recently cast in "American Horror Story," but creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck are keeping mum on his role.
Joseph Fiennes -- Joseph Fiennes of "FlashForward" and "Shakespeare in Love" fame will play the head of the institution. Jessica Lange is certainly pleased with his addition to the cast, as he will be a love interest for her character.
Chloe Sevigny -- Former "Big Love" and "Kids" actress Chloe Sevigny is said to play the role of Shelly, a nymphomaniac and mortal enemy of Jessica Lange's character.
