Just how secretive is the lid on “American Horror Story’s” second season? Even when we find out something new, it typically comes with a caveat or two.
Take for instance the news coming out that Britne Oldford (best known for her role on MTV’s short-lived adaptation of the UK series “Skins”) has been, according to TVLine, cast for a role. There are no details available at the moment as to who Oldford is going to play, or how many episodes she is going to appear in.
If we had to fathom a guess, though, it would be that Oldford is probably going to be one of the patients in the mental hospital that will be overseen by Jessica Lange’s character. There are going to be some other familiar faces from season 1 involved here, whether it be Zachary Quinto or Sarah Paulson. We will be going back in time to the 1960s (otherwise known as the favorite decade for TV these days), and the horror here is set to be more of the traditional variety versus what we saw of the Harmon family.
Oldford’s casting continues co-creator Ryan Murphy’s recent trajectory of taking some interesting risks — while she is a relative unknown, at least she is more familiar to the world of acting than “The Voice’s” Adam Levine, who has absolutely no previous acting experience and is playing one part of a character duo known as “the lovers.”
Season 2 of “American Horror Story” will premiere in the fall … and we can only hope we find out more in the way of tangible details before then.
Do you like the casting pattern that Murphy seems to have going.
