Though the veteran actress has plenty of movies under her belt, AHS provided a dose of shock therapy to a career largely centered in the 1980 and '90s. "It reenergized me; it reenergized my career," Lange told the Times. "There's no shame in recognizing that. It's exposed me to a whole new generation, which is a little strange. I'm not used to young people thinking I'm cool." Did she not read the headlines after her performance of "The Name Game" last season?
Even with this news, however, there's no need to panic yet. After tomorrow night, we'll only be three episodes into American Horror Story: Coven, and she promises at least one more after that. Still, we'll shed at least one bloody tear in appreciation of Lange's sinister, mellifluous Southern charm and all of the delight it's brought us. (Los Angeles Times)
