Sarah Paulson on 'American Horror Story: Asylum'

"I can't watch it at night and I'm on it... There are some people who like to be scared and I understand that, but I am not one of those individuals. I like to cozy up with a nice book and a bath and a teddy bear. I am not interested in being terrified before I go to sleep."

American Horror Story to Return for Third Season

American Horror Story: AsylumAmerican Horror Story has been renewed for a third series.

The show - created by Glee showrunner Ryan Murphy and featuring Zachary Quinto, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Adam Levine - will return for a new 13-episode season in 2013. "With American Horror Story: Asylum, [executive producers] Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have raised the bar in every way from Murder House. And their original idea -- the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast - has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting," FX president John Landgraf said in a statement.

Season two Asylum is up 19 per cent in viewers over Murder House.

Zachary recently revealed he was thrilled he decided to return for American Horror Story: Asylum. The star was initially hesitant about returning to the series which this year changed location and characters from a haunted Los Angeles mansion to an institution for the criminally insane in the 1960s, but is delighted Ryan talked him into it. "I was [hesitant]. But once Ryan explained to me what he wanted to do, and we talked about how all of us would play different characters, it became infinitely more appealing to me. I'm so glad I decided to double down," he explained.

American Horror Story in Talks With Joseph Fiennes

Joseph FiennesThe cast of the second season of American Horror Story is coming together slowly, but surely...

In addition to a handful of actors returning to the FX show from season one, word through the TV grapevine says that Joseph Fiennes -- whom you may recall from his most recent small screen role as Mark Benford on Flash Forward -- is in talks for the Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk-created show.

The anthology series takes place in the sixties -- more specifically, in an East Coast institution for the criminally insane. Fiennes would play the head of the institution, where Jessica Lange's character works (incidentally, her character is a love interest for Fiennes').

Musician-turned-reality show judge Adam Levine is also new to the series, portraying a character known only as one half of a couple known as The Lovers.

American Horror Story's sophomore season is scheduled to premiere this Fall.
