During her four seasons on the show, Jessica Lange won two Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award and a SAG Award for her different characters. In the first season of American Horror Story, the actress played Southern Belle Constance Langdon. This was before it was known that the show is actually a horror anthology that will feature a different story line and characters every each season. In Season 2, American Horror Story: Asylum, she played the conniving nun Sister Jude Martin, followed by the witch Fiona Goode in American Horror Story: Coven and carnival leader Elsa Mars in American Horror Story: Freak Show.
Matthew Bomer also had a guest-starring stint on American Horror Story: Freak Show as Andy, a male prostitute that gets murdered by serial killer Dandy, but it isn't known if those two characters will be connected or not. Series creator Ryan Murphy teased last year that every season of the show is connected in some way or another, despite being set in different locations and time periods. All that is known about Matthew Bomer's involvement is that he will have a lead role, and nothing was revealed about Cheyenne Jackson's character either.Read More
