Adam Levine, The Voice US coach and Maroon 5 lead singer, is reportedly lined up to star in season two of hit drama, American Horror Story, which is of course penned by Glee creator, Ryan Murphy.
Entertainment Weekly state that Adam is “in final negotiations” with FX to play one half of a couple who will be called simply, The Lovers.
Cinema Blend adds that season two of American Horror Story has a “contemporary timeline set in an East Coast mental institution.”
And apparently, the show’s executives are so keen to work with Adam, they’re fully prepared to shift their filming schedule around to fit in with his touring with Maroon 5, and his filming for the next season of The Voice.
The second season of American Horror Story is due to premiere in October in the States, with original cast members Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Lily Rabe rather mysteriously returning as different characters…
The Hollywood Reporter adds that while discussing season two at the recent Paleyfest, Murphy said, “It’s very fun to take a group of actors that you love and say, ‘Come play again.’
“Every year in the series is about a different haunting, so everybody will be playing the opposite of what they played, which is fun.”
But when pressed for details about the new season, Murphy said, “Our only rule on the show is no werewolves and no vampires.
“I feel that a supernatural element will always be a part of the show, but I don’t think we’re interested in that the same way.
“We’re trying to do something much more historically accurate.”
THR adds, “The potential casting would bring Levine closer into the Glee fold, with the singer-songwriter launching a record label this year and signing Glee co-star Matthew Morrison.”
