American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed his dream cast for season 4 of the horror series.
American Horror Story has attracted many high-profile actors and actresses over the course of its three seasons, including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, James Cromwell and Joseph Fiennes. For future seasons, Murphy has a list of actors and actresses he'd like to work with.
"Well, every year I got to Reese Witherspoon," Murphy told Entertainment Weekly in its latest edition. "I want her to play something really twisted and f-ed up. But she's always booked."
Other high-profile actors on Murphy's wish-list include Michael Chiklis and Michelle Pfeiffer. Murphy is also trying to get Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton to appear on Coven after their star appearances in American Horror Story season 1.
Season 4 will likely be a transitional year for American Horror Story as it will feature the departure of Lange. Lange confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that she is in fact leaving after season 4.
"Once it's over and I have a full year ahead of me with nothing to do, who knows?" Lange noted. "It might not have been the best decision. But I think four years doing something is a sufficient amount of time."
Murphy said that American Horror Story season 4 will not feature Lange as the lead, as she was in Asylum and this year's Coven. Though she won't be the star, Murphy said "she'll have this great juicy part."
Murphy also teased that season 4 would not take place in the present, as American Horror Story: Coven is currently. He said that they will either be shooting in New Orleans again or Santa Fe, New Mexico.
American Horror Story: Coven airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
