Lange to play someone new on 'American Horror Story'

We'd heard that Jessica Lange was (thankfully) going to stick around in some capacity for the second season of "American Horror Story," but it sounds like Ryan Murphy will have her do much more than make an appearance.

The co-creator of the FX hit tells Entertainment Weekly that Lange has signed a new contract, and that instead of playing Constance will portray someone new.

"We have designed the second season of 'American Horror Story' completely around her character," Murphy says. "This will really be the Jessica Lange show so I'm very excited about it. We are designing this amazing new opposite of Constance character for her.... I really sweated this negotiation, so I'm glad she is firmly on board."

"American Horror Story" will start production in late July, and will return to FX in mid-October.

    she looks awful and i do not feel she's a good actress- you never see her unless she uses the media for promoting a least that's the way it appears to me

    I sure hope this is a bad photo of her ... does not do justice to the beauty that she had back in the day.

    I really enjoyed season 1 & am looking forward to #2. (Especially after reading the EW link) So glad JL stayed on, too!

    URGENT – Please read more about VERIZON. Things they don't want the public to know! I was tormented by racial comments that were ignored, then racially discriminated against and wrongfully terminated for making complaints about the racial injustice.

    Please visit my Blog Page to see what Verizon did to my family. What they have done to my family, and continue to do is horrific. Today they still will not accept responsibility. So I will not stop this FIGHT for JUSTICE! It has been 8 years and I refuse to give up, but I need your help to spread my message.

    You can read my stories about what VERIZON did to my family by GOOGLING:
    • “Verizon Raped My Family – Cover Letter”
    • “Verizon Raped My Family – Press Release”
    • “Verizon Raped My Family – Requesting Criminal Punishment”

    From there you can access the other letters through the recent post.

    I am a man who has stood up against racism, discrimination, bullying, harassment, hostile environment, belittlement, threats, and retaliation, all while working for Verizon Communications, as they conspired to terminate me.

    I am a man who is trying to hold his family together while in the process of trying to fight for my rights to be heard. I am a man who has brought up his family on morals, discipline, character, hard work, dedication and conviction to believe that good things happen to good people. I am a man who could not be more proud of my family for all their trust and faith in my conviction. I am man who is a proud servant in my community and deserves to be heard, as I am begging for JUSTICE!

      This is why I will never pay my $600 remianing balance at Verizon. I will continue my protest for this man and never support such a horrid corporation. This is the only reason why.

    Hey Sadie! I love Jessica Lange! Why did she have to be like everyone in Hollywood and get an eyebrow lift? She looks weird – like permanently surprised! I don't watch AHS, so you probably can see her better.

    This is great news for all us AHS fans. Jessica Lange really made the show. Finally, a show that actually listened to it's fans. Looking forward to see what they do with the story line in the fall. Happy weekend everybody!
