Gather around the cauldron for some ghastly good gossip: There are rumors of Connie Britton potentially returning to FX's ultra hip American Horror Story.
Will she play a good witch or a bad witch? Or do she and the producers have something more ghoulish in mind? Britton, who earned an Emmy nod for her role as haunted house homemaker “Vivian Harmon” in American Horror Story‘s first season, left to play country music mega-maven “Rayna Jaymes” on ABC’s Callie Khouri (Thelma and Louise) created Nashville. According to Britton as long the scheduling works she’s in.
“I hope so. I’ve actually have been talking to them this season…I said, ‘Okay, let’s see if we can try to figure this out.”
So far nobody knows what kind of role Britton would take since she would undoubtedly be showing up late in the season. With ratings showing a two million viewer increase there is far less credence to the notion that the show needs a slight jolt from a former star. After all, with Jessica Lange tearing up the screen with her Supreme Witch character, Angela Basset’s vengeance driven Voodoo Lady Marie Laveau, and Kathy Bates as the both frighteningly evil and time displaced Madame LaLaurie, how much more talent do you really need?
Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s FX horror anthology drama broke out of the TV pack in 2011 with its edgy, sexy brand of macabre story telling mated with one of the oldest horror tropes, the haunted house. Three seasons and 19 Emmy’s later, the creepy creation shows no signs of an early grave.
