"I don't want to say what Zach [Quinto] and Lily [Rabe] are doing, or what anybody else is doing, until we get closer to [fall], Murphy told TV Line in a recent interview, "but I’ll continue to say that everybody is playing the opposite of what they played last year, which I think is why they’re all so into it. Like, I have talked to Zach and Jessica [Lange], and they were very excited... and that's a rare thing." But in keeping with the "opposite" theme, one can only assume that Evan Peters, who in Season 1 played the rather evil Tate, will be the new chapter's hero. “Knowing me, it will be the anti-hero,” Murphy teases. “It won’t be what you expect.”
"American Horror Story" Season 2 will be set in an East Coast insane asylum circa the 1960s, Jessica Lange, James Cromwell, Adam Levine, Zachary Quinto, Chloe Sevigny, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Lizzie Brochere star.
