FX's upcoming third season of "American Horror Story", subtitled "Coven", has just landed two more heavyweight powerhouse actresses to its already incredible cast list. Co-creator Ryan Murphy sent out the following tweet yesterday:
Age-defying beauty Bassett is an Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner for WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT? while LuPone has twice been nominated for an Emmy Award and is a multiple Tony winner.
Bassett and LuPone join Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Gabourey Sidibe for the third season, which is scheduled to premiere this October.
