Earlier this month, FX confirmed that Jessica Lange and Zachary Quinto would return to "American Horror Story" in its second season as two of the three leads. And while it's still not clear who will headline the season with them, a surprising addition to the cast has emerged.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Adam Levine is in final negotiations to appear in the second season of "American Horror Story;" which would be his TV acting debut. With the all-new storyline of the upcoming season still shrouded in secrecy, all that is currently known about Levine's role is that he is "a contemporary character and half of a couple called 'The Lovers.'”
Levine is best known for being the frontman for the band Maroon 5 and as a judge on the popular reality series, "The Voice" on NBC. Levine doesn't appear to have much experience with acting, but the producers of "American Horror Story" are said to be so high on him that they are willing to shoot around his summer touring schedule.
During the Paley Festival, "American Horror Story" co-creator Ray Murphy also confirmed that Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe will also return in season two as brand new characters. Aside from that, all that has been revealed about the upcoming story is that it takes place on the East Coast in a "horror institution" and that Lange and Quinto's characters are at odds with each other.
"American Horror Story" will return to FX in Fall 2012.
