Maroon 5's Adam Levine in talks for American Horror Story
Story by Jack Foley
MAROON 5’s Adam Levine is in talks to join the second season of American Horror Story.
The singer and coach for The Voice is circling the role of one half of a new set of characters referred to as “The Lovers”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
If successful, the role would mark Levine’s first entry into a scripted series and would mean the show having to work around the singer’s summer concert schedule.
American Horror Story is the latest series from Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and is preparing to ring the changes following the success of its first season.
As planned, a new set of characters will be unveiled with even returning cast members from the first season set to be deployed in new roles.
So far, Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe will all return to the series in new guises.
Explaining his decision to do that at this year’s Paleyfest, Murphy said: “Every year in the series is about a different haunting, so everybody will be playing the opposite of what they played, which is fun.”
But he added: “It’s very fun to take a group of actors that you love and say, ‘come play again’.”
Levine’s involvement with American Horror Story may come as a surprise to some but he’s on Murphy’s radar and has a connection to Glee, having signed Matthew Morrison to his record label earlier this year.
