Kathy Bates to take on Jessica Lange in American Horror Story 3
as a nemesis!!! Bitch fight!!!!!
Kathy Bates is a wonderful actress. LUV HUH.
Kathy Bates is a bully, and she's bigger. Jessica is much more fragile. Be careful, Ms. Lange. Bates is brutal.
Maybe it will be a Baby Jane type relationship!!!!!!!!
R2, Fragile? Ms. Lange has weathered many storms. She is, to quote Tom + Lorenzo, "the honey badger of actresses."
The OP didn't link it, but it's true. Bates is rumored to play a best friend of Jessica's who betrays her and becomes a rival. The rumor is also that season 3 is witch-themed, so Kathy and Jessica will play rival witches. Can't get more campy than that! And all the other regulars from seasons 1&2 are returning except Zachary Quinto.
I don't know r7, maybe he's getting back into his movie career. The new Star Trek is in post-production, and he has some other movie in pre-production.
This is going to be epic.
As long as Evan Peters does nude scenes, I'm there.
Thank god, no more Quinto, he can't act for shit.
Qunito cannot be as big a part due to movie commitments. They are replacing him with a 2x4.
I was worried about Kathy Bates for a while there. She had a recurrence of cancer, which neccesitated a double mastectomy, and at the same time her show was suddenly cancelled. I feared that her health was really bad but I'm relieved to know she's back at work, so apparently everything is fine with her, thank god.
I couldn't give two shits about 90% of celebrities, but I LOVE Kathy Bates.
Any more ham & that show will face a Hasidic boycott
And apparently they will not be shooting the third season at the usual studio location where they have shot the previous 2 seasons.
Kathy had a supporting role (pre Oscar) in Jessica's MEN DON'T LEAVE film. Kathy was actually quite thin and played Jessica's boss who gave her a really hard time. Can't wait to see them together again.
R17, they also played besties in the little-seen BONNEVILLE, with Joan Allen (WHET?).
Kathy and Jessica love each other and are both thrilled. THIS should be good, Cuntbags!
Oh, R3! I just came a little reading your comment. HOLY SHIT, I hope you're right!!!
I love this. Both women are expert at going off the rails. Can't wait.
They're filming season 3 in another state, but several DL posters guessed the location correctly on another AHS thread.
I wish Jessica had gotten the lead in the movie version of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY instead of Meryl. If they were going into production now, it could have happened as Lange is back in the public eye.
Ryan Murphy just said that Bates' character is "cuckoo for cocoa puffs" and to expect a lot of scenes of Bates and Lange "going at it".
Oh, and the title of season 3 is "American Horror Story: Coven"
It will shoot in New Orleans.
Title of season 3 confirmed along with shooting location(s):
[quote] “The title of the next year is American Horror Story: Coven,” he continued. “It’s a really cool story that we’ve been talking about for a couple of years no, and this seemed like the year to do it.” The third season has been long rumored to center on witches.
[quote] The show, which had been filmed primarily on a soundstage, will be shot on location in different cities with rich haunted histories, including New Orleans.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
