Finally, we are starting to get some much-needed details about who Adam Levine is going to be playing on “American Horror Story” when the show returns to FX this fall — and it looks as though it will be something rather innocent that finds a way to take a few dark turns.
Speaking to E! News, the Maroon 5 frontman / coach on “The Voice” (who has already professed to have no acting experience whatsoever) did his best to share a few details about his long-discussed part — even if he kept the twist that is going to involve his character in the dark for at least the time being:
“I’m newly married and I go with my wife on our honeymoon. 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…it sounds like so much fun and that’s why I wanted to do it. I was like, this doesn’t even sound like acting; this sounds, like, hysterical, funny, dark and cool and right up my alley.”
Murphy reportedly wanted Levine so badly for this role that he organized shooting days not only so that they would not conflict with “The Voice” starting up production next month, but also with his band commitments. Maroon 5 is getting set to launch a new album, and with that includes the responsibility of performing on just about every talk show known to man in order to spike up record sales. (His lead single “Payphone” has been picking up play on the radio ever since its debut.)
Are you excited to see what Levine is going to bringing to this horror series next year, or are you a little bit skeptical still about a guy who has never taken on anything like this in his life? If we were in his shoes, we would be equally nervous about trying to get this right after Murphy took such a big gamble bringing him in.
