I got those long overdue American Horror Story: Coven details….
Kathy Bates will play Louisiana-born socialite and serial killer Marie Delphine LaLaurie debuting in October. Bates’ character was a big wheel in New Orleans until a fire broke out in her house in 1834 and people responding to help discovered bound and tortured slaves inside.
Angela Bassett, meanwhile, will play Marie Laveau, a Louisiana Creole and Voodoo priestess who also lived in New Orleans in the 19th century.
Jessica Lange will play a witch named Fiona.
Sarah Paulson will play her daughter, Cordelia.
Please note, this is just part of the Coven cast, which is described as a “murders’ row of actresses.” Other names reportedly signed on for the coming season include Patti LuPone, Francis Conroy, Gabourney Sidibe (who I personally hate) and Lily Rabe.
