As the second season of "American Horror Story" gets closer to filming, new details about the story have emerged along with an unexpected addition to the cast.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Chloe Sevigny is in final negotiations to sign on for "American Horror Story" season two. As revealed last week by co-creator Ryan Murphy, the second season of "American Horror Story" will take place on the East Coast in an institution for the criminally insane.

Sevigny is in talks to play Shelly the Nymphomaniac; who is described as "one of the mortal enemies of Jessica Lange's character." Lange's new character has previously been mentioned as the director of the institution, but her name has not yet been revealed.

Sevigny was featured in "Big Love" on HBO for five seasons, in addition to her memorable film turns in "Kids," "Boys Don't Cry," "American Psycho," "The Brown Bunny" and "Party Monster." Sevigny is only the third new cast member to be announced, joining "The Voice" judge Adam Levine and Lizzie Brocheré as well as returning cast members Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Zachary Quinto.

"American Horror Story" season two will debut on FX this fall.
