American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy tweeted today that the Season Three cast will include Gabourey Sidibe from Precious.
The fall season of the FX horror anthology, titled "Coven," will be dominated by "female power" (and witchcraft?) and be set partially in New Orleans. Also, along with returning actors Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy and Lily Rabe, a "signature, iconic monster" will also be back.
