TV Line is reporting that Kathy Bates is joining the cast of American Horror Story Season Three. Forever remembered as the psychotic Annie Wilkes in Rob Reiner’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Misery (above), Bates will play the best friend of Jessica Lange’s new character – but will turn out to be her nemesis.

Details on Horror Story‘s third season remain scarce, but series cocreator Ryan Murphy previously confirmed that Lange will play a “glamour cat leading lady,” in stark contrast to her gloomy Asylumwardrobe.

The cast for American Horror Story Season Three s far includes Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates.

Show creator Ryan Murphy described Season Three:

“You’re going to see a very different tone in season three, but that’s the joy of the show,” he added. “I think as a person right now I do feel lighter and wanting to embrace something a little bit more fun.”

“What season three is about is more historical in nature… I’m also interested in getting into a horror romance. That’s certainly something that’s going to be in the water for season three.”

Season 3 will be contained yet again in thirteen episodes, and again will jump through time periods.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
