With news of Jessica Lange leaving American Horror Story after season 4, there will likely be numerous older actresses hoping to replace her as the series goes forward.

Lange has proven herself to be the star of American Horror Story, with her scene-stealing supporting performance as Constance in season 1, her lead role as Sister Jude in American Horror Story: Asylum and her current lead performance as Fiona in American Horror Story: Coven. However, the award-winning actress has announced that she will be leaving the series after season 4. As for which older actresses could potentially replace Lange, there are many actresses of a certain age who would likely love to sink their teeth into a juicy new role on the horror anthology series.

Here are five suggestions by Enstars for actresses that could replace Lange in future seasons:

Sissy Spacek:

Like Lange, Spacek has been out of the spotlight for a number of years, but she has proven herself as a good horror actress, receiving an Academy Award nomination for star-making role in the horror classic Carrie. She has also dabbled in television, having a recurring role on Big Love from 2010-2011.

Faye Dunaway:

Dunaway played Joan Crawford in the '80s camp classic Mommie Dearest, a diva-like performance in the same vein as Lange's various characters. Dunaway has not starred in anything prominent lately, so American Horror Story might be exactly what she needs to reinvent herself for a new generation.

Michelle Pfeiffer:

Pfeiffer has starred in a number of horror/fantasy films over the course of her career, from The Witches of Eastwick and What Lies Beneath to Batman Returns and Dark Shadows. Though she has not appeared on television since the mid-90s, she also has not had any particularly standout roles over the past decade, and American Horror Story could give that to her.

Winona Ryder:

Though she is only in her early 40s, Ryder's star power has faded since her breakout decade in the '90s. Ryder has chosen many roles for darker movies in her career, including Beetlejuice, Girl, Interrupted, Edward Scissorhands, Dracula and Black Swan. American Horror Story may be a good fit for the former Tim Burton collaborator.

Anjelica Huston:

Huston has starred in her share of horror classics over the years, such as The Witches andThe Addams Family. She was also a diva-like supporting character in NBC's short-lived Smash, proving she can do television. Huston's commanding presence could help ease the transition off of Lange.
