For all of the cast it lost, it was also confirmed that Jessica Lange and Evan Peters would be coming back but starring in completely different roles. According to Entertainment Weekly, the cast is going in an off-the-wall direction. Reports have surfaced that the show’s creators have approached and worked out a deal for Maroon 5 front-man and The Voice host Adam Levine to join the cast.
While the producers have kept a tight lid on the upcoming second season, it has been exposed that the series will move back to the East Coast and will feature an all-new tale. Furthermore, Levine’s character will play one half of a couple called “The Lovers.”
On paper, I have to say I’m a little reserved to pour on love for the decision. I’m not denying that Levine can act, as the man obviously is a showman of the highest order; but it’s going to be tricky to throw him into such an established show. Content-wise, AHS is intensely dark, and judging from the lyrical lightness of most Maroon 5 songs, it’s unclear whether Levine can dig to those deranged emotional depths. Regardless, it’s definitely interesting news.
