American Horror Story Is Using Angelina Jolie Role As Inspiration For Season 2 Casting image
The latest bit of vaguely spoilery news about the second season of American Horror Story is intriguing, and it has something to do with Angelina Jolie. No, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk arenít seeking the Oscar winner for a role in the series, but they are using one of her previous roles as a template for a character in the second season. Spoilers ahead!

TV Line shared the news, stating that, via a casting notice, the FX drama series is looking for someone to play the role of Gia, a ďa fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot who harbors a secret.Ē The casting notice specifies ďthink Angelina Jolie in Girl Interrupted." Jolie won an Oscar for her role in the film, which had her playing one of the residents of the institution in which Winona Ryderís character Susanna Kaysen is living. On a random aside, I canít help but wonder if the characterís name, Gia, was inspired by another role played by Jolie.

TV Line says this character will be the rival to Jessica Langeís character, and as the second season is said to be set in a mental institution, using a character from a film that takes place in one as inspiration seems like a fitting way to approach the casting process. It sounds like an especially intriguing part, and it should be interesting to see who is cast for it.
