‘American Horror Story’ season 2: Adam Levine talks casting

When the word was first announced that Adam Levine was going to be playing a prominent role on the second season of “American Horror Story,” there was all sorts of speculation as to whether or not the Maroon 5 frontman (and coach on “The Voice”) would be able to actually act as a part of a duo known as “The Lovers.” While this was a nerve-wrecking thing surely for Levine to take on, it also appears as though it was exactly the sort of challenge he was ready for.

As a part of a brand-new cover story with Inked Magazine (per TooFab), Levine tried to describe how he initially felt after signing the dotted line for a show that has already garnered a great deal of critical acclaim to go along with multiple Emmy nominations:

“It’s challenging … The first thing I did when I got the job was ask friends who are actors what the f–k I was supposed to do.”

Since Levine was originally cast on the show, he has already been joined by a number of noteworthy guest stars — including Channing Tatum’s wife Jenna Dewan, who is going to be playing the other half of the aforementioned duo. Executive producer Ryan Murphy first posted the photo attached to this article earlier this week on Twitter, and thus far it is really one of the only clues we have as to the storyline for this upcoming story — outside of the fact that Jessica Lange stars as a nun running an insane asylum back in 1960s Boston.

Do you think casting Levine is going to look like a brilliant move for both the rock star and Murphy at the end of the day? To find out some more news related to the brand-new subtitle for the show’s second season, be sure to check out the link here.
