She will play Shelly the Nymphomaniac, who is said to be the mortal enemy of Jessica Lange's Constance Langdon. The writers and producers crafted the role with her in mind. The season will be set in an East Coast institute for the criminally insane, which is run by Constance.
We reported last month that The Voice judge Adam Levine will make his scripted TV debut on the FX series this year. Jessica Lange, who took home an Emmy last year for her portrayal of Constance, will headline a cast which includes Season 1 actors such as Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Zachary Quinto. However, they will all be playing different characters this time.
Production is scheduled to start this summer. FX hasn't announced when Season 2 will premiere, although it will likely debut sometime in October.
