Ryan Murphy Invites Patti LuPone Back For AMERICAN HORROR STORY Season Four
GLEE and American Horror Story mastermind Ryan Murphy has confirmed that he hopes for a return from two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Patti LuPone on Season Four of the hit FX horror anthology series American Horror Story following her memorable character arc on this season's AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN according to a new interview.
When questioned about her character's bleach-drinking scene on the most recent episode of the sensationalistic series, Murphy confirmed it was the coda for the character and actress - at least for this season.
Yet, Murphy hopes for LuPone to return to the series later this year when shooting begins on Season Four.
"You know there's always a place for Patti on the show," Murphy says.
Elaborating, Murphy reveals, "I wanted her to do more episodes. The thing about Patti is she has such an extensive life as a concert vocalist and she travels all over the country. We were just lucky to get her for the number of episodes we did. Everybody knows she's a great singer but I thought her acting was incredible. I thought she took a very big character and made it very real and relatable and not insane."
Murphy concludes, "I think she's fantastic."
Of note, LuPone previously guest-starred on a special NYC-set episode of Glee titled "New York", the Season Two finale.
