Angela Bassett, recently seen in the train wreck known as Olympus Has Fallen, has been cast in the upcoming third season of FX's American Horror Story. The latest tale from the Ryan Murphy-helmed creepshow will focus on witches, but no details about Bassett's role have been divulged.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Muphy mentioned that three actors would play real people in the new season. Bassett has played a number of notable women, including Tina Turner, Betty Shabazz, and Rosa Parks.
If Angela Bassett plays a broom-riding incarnation of Tina Turner, we are so fucking there.
