Angela Bassett Joins Gabourey Sidibe In FX's 'American Horror Story' Season 3 ('Coven')


Just over a week ago, Gabourey Sidibe joined the cast of season 3 of FX’s series American Horror Story, titled American Horror Story: Coven

We can now officially add Angela Bassett to the cast, as well as veteran stage star Patti LuPone, per the above tweet from series creator Shawn Ryan.

The actresses join a cast that includes Jessica LangeEvan Peters, Sarah PaulsonTaissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy and Lily Rabe.

Quite an impressive overall cast! Although I never quite got into the series; not because I didn’t like it. There’s just so much else competing for my attention. But with the addition of Sidibe and Bassett, I think I’ll catch up before the next season arrives.

No details yet on what each new cast addition will play in the horror TV series, however.

The last time Bassett appeared as a series regular on any TV show was during the final season (2008–2009) of the once hit medical drama ER on NBC.
