American Horror Story season 2 Finally Confirms Ian McShane Will Join the Asylum
After his casting was heavily rumored this summer – thanks to the loose lips of Chloe Sevigny – we can now say with utmost certainty Ian McShane will have a part in the second season of American Horror Story. I was really hoping those rumors would turn out to be true and now I can barely contain my giddiness. McShane has a wonderful presence that would be perfectly suited for the demented world of American Horror Story, especially now that it has shifted locations and time periods, taking us into the scary world of a 1960s mental institution. The downside of this great news is the eternal mystery surrounding nearly every aspect of American Horror Story.
TVLine could not say whom McShane would be playing, only that his character would be “tussling” with Jessica Lange’s institution head/nun. In what way will they be tussling? Certainly not a literal sense. If we look back on what Sevigny originally said back in June, it would appear McShane will be playing her doctor who may or may not be mistreating her. That will depend on if you believe the ramblings of mental patient. Sevigny’s character was institutionalized by her husband for being addicted to sex, which might give us a clue into how she could be mistreated. Perhaps McShane’s character takes advantage of her nymphomania, believing she wants it. It’s a pretty twisted idea, but this is a twisted show.
With all the various actors attached to this series and the general mystery surrounding its storyline, I can’t help but feel compelled to watch it despite some iffy feelings I had toward the show’s first season. From the previews I’ve seen, it’s like a completely new show, which would make sense because that’s essentially what it is. Besides some returning actors – who aren’t evening playing the same parts – this is a completely different show. It’s not something that has ever really been done before on television and it will be exciting to see how/if it pays off.
