Although the cast is already packed with some of Hollywood’s biggest names — like Kathy Bates and Gabourey Sidibe, to name a few — actor Danny Huston has signed on, as well, playing a love interest for Jessica Lange’s character Fiona.
AHS creator Ryan Murphy announced the news on Twitter on September 8, writing, “Jessica Lange's got a sexy (and dangerous) BF this year: welcome to Coven Mr. Danny Huston!”
Considering Jessica played a controlling nun-turned-mental patient on American Horror Story: Asylum last year, we’re glad she’s gettin’ some lovin’ this time around. On Coven, she’s set to play the “supreme” witch Fiona, who heads back to town to help her kind after a rash of mysterious attacks. Sarah Paulson plays her daughter, Cordelia, but it remains to be seen if she is a witch as well.
Still, we couldn’t be more excited about Fiona’s “sexy” and “dangerous” new love. Color us intrigued! AHS: Coven premieres on October 9 at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
