Joan Collins has joined the season eight cast of “American Horror Story.”
Showrunner Ryan Murphy gave the Hollywood Reporter a casting update saying that he’s “throwing in Joan Collins” and is “interested” in casting Anjelica Huston.
Details on the horror anthology series’ eighth season have been few. Plots for “American Horror Story” have notoriously been kept under wraps until its airing. However, fans have already started speculating that the upcoming season’s theme will be titled “Radioactive” and focus on a post-apocalyptic world.
“It’s an interesting idea,” Murphy says. “I can neither confirm nor deny.”
“American Horror Story” staples Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates will also return as the season’s three leads.
As for Murphy’s other series, “American Crime Story,” he told the Hollywood Reporter that the previously planned Monica Lewinsky season has been nixed for now.
“I told her, ‘Nobody should tell your story but you, and it’s kind of gross if they do,'” Murphy says. ” ‘If you want to produce it with me, I would love that; but you should be the producer and you should make all the goddamn money.'”
