Jessica Lange’s ‘Surprising’ Success on ‘American Horror Story’

Jessica Lange’s ‘Surprising’ Success on ‘American Horror Story’ – and Why She Doesn’t Watch It | TheWrap TV.

On Friday night I got caught up on AHS: Asylum watching the latest two episodes: Name Game and Spilt Milk. You don’t have to go back and refresh your memory with AHS. It’s one of those shows that stays with you. By the time I sat down with my cup of cocoa, the chiweenie walked and fed and burrowing under his afghan, the DVR remote in hand, I was all set to see the progression of Lana, Kit, Grace and Pepper, and of course, Sister Jude.

I was not at all prepared for the music video of the day room at the sanitarium doing “The Name Game” and sat there with my mouth open briefly till I was laughing loudly. It was so unexpected and so hysterical. I guess Ryan Murphy (creator of Glee) just couldn’t help himself. But it was soooo delightful. See for yourself:

The link at the top is quite a lengthy interview with Jessica Lange talking about her past, present and future film and TV work, from King Kong to American Horror Story (season 3). Yes, it’s already been confirmed there will be a season 3 and Ms. Lange has signed on for it.

No telling who else might make the crossover from season 1 & 2 to season 3 . I certainly wasn’t expecting to see Dylan McDermott in this season and then he shows up in several episodes, including Spilt Milk. I never cared for him in Dark Blue or some of his other TV work, but he’s great as a killer (oops, did I say too  much?).

“Copper” is more precious than Gold

Tom Weston-Jones and Kevin Ryan are “Coppers”

If you don’t have your TV set to BBC America on Sunday at 9pm, then you need to re-adjust either your schedule or at the least, set your DVR.

Copper is certainly for “adults only” but so is this blog. There’s sex and violence and swearing and drinking, corruption, intrigue, mystery and a fantastic story line. Plenty of historical information, beautiful sets and the men – especially Tom Weston-Jones are oh-la-la!

Copper is written by Academy Award winner Barry Levinson and Emmy Award winner Tom Fontana. It’s a gripping crime drama, set in 1864 New York.

There’s 10 episodes in the first season and you can catch the previous episode at 8pm CT and the new episode at 9pm CT.

Here’s a link to Copper‘s blog for complete (and delightful) recaps of each episode:
