    Ryan Murphy has been talking more about season two of Feud.

    Copied from CNN http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/24/entertainment/feud-season-2/

    (CNN)The story about a clash between two Hollywood heavyweights came to a close with Sunday’s conclusion of “Feud” Season 1. And creator Ryan Murphy already has his sights set on next season, which will center on the ill-fatted marriage between Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

    “It’s going to be super juicy,” Murphy told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s a very different kind of feud than the feud we told with Bette and Joan. It’s a love affair feud.”
    FX picked up the second installment of the anthology series even before Season 1 debuted.
    The roles of Charles and Diana have yet to be cast. But Murphy says filling the iconic roles is proving to be difficult feat.
    “It’s become sort of a Scarlett O’Hara part,” Murphy said of finding an actress to fill Diana’s shoes. “A lot of people want to be Diana, and we’re doing a very sympathetic portrayal of her.”
    Murphy added that he’s “open” to both newcomers and established stars for the role.
    “I don’t know where we’re going to land,” he said.
    Murphy said at an Emmy event over the weekend that the second installment begins with the couple filing divorce papers and will tell the story of “the dissolving of a fairy tale.”
    Season 2 will be written by Murphy, Jon Robin Baitz and Ned Martel.
    “FEUD: Charles and Diana” will consist of 10 episode and is scheduled to debut in 2018.

    Who do you think they will cast ? what other supporting characters will pop up ?

    He has already stated that it’s gonna start with the divorce so it’s a perfect role for actress in her early forties or late thirties. My gurl would be perfect but she can’t do an accent to save her life and she’s retired but there’s my other gurl who would absolutely kill in this role. He just needs to cast Kate Beckinsale. She’s a marvellous actress and her as Diana would finally bring her awards recognition she so fucking deserves.

    Just cast Naomi Watts and give her the chance she never had with Diana and call it a day.

    I don’t think Naomi would like to go through it again. It was too much of an embarrassment for her. And she’s busy with her own TV show. Feud is a perfect opportunity for an actress who doesn’t do TV normally. We’re probably gonna end up with Paltrow because she’s friends with her and she’s dating Falchuk. She’s a very nice choice because she can do accent but she’s too obvious.

    I think Paltrow would be good , it would be great to see her in something good … and I agree with Naomi , she would be good but probably doesn’t want to go back.

    I know a lot of these actresses look younger than they are, but Diana died at 36. People are mentioning women in their 40s for a story that’s supposed to start when they got divorced. They got divorced I asume “finally” in 1996 which would make her 35. The proceedings and the drama on which the series wants to focus on probably started much earlier than that. So we’re talking about an early 30s Diana here. Casting Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Watts, Kate Beckinsale and more who are all either 10 or almost 10 years older than Diana at that point seems like something they won’t do. Even if Murphy’s whole brand has turned into “Giving Older Women a Chance Productions”.

    Seems like Carey Mulligan or people around her age and look are more appropiate. She actually sounds like the more logical/obvious choice. And since they didn’t give an actual fuck about turning Lange into Crawford and just letting her be Jessica Lange with dark hair and left it at that, it might be even easier to cast Diana.

    I’m guessing it’s gonna be like (Bette and) Joan with showing both Charles and Diana mostly after the divorce with some flashbacks here and there for which they can get some young actors. That’s why I think he should go with actress in her late thirties-early forties. Oh for fuck’s sake, he casted Sarandon and Lange who were more than ten years older than the women they played. And honestly, Beckinsale looks like she’s in her mid thirties, sometimes even early. Actually I think she wasn’t acting in Underworld, she truly is a vampire (with the best surgeon in Tinsletown). lol

    I guess you are right. Well, at least Gwyneth would stop blogging for a while so that’s good at least, lol.

    Ryan Murphy will probably get Jessica Lange to play Diana. Seriously, how are her and Paulson’s British accents?

    Okay, with taking age, looks, talent, and nationality into consideration, I think I have finally assembled my dream cast aka the perfect cast. They’re mostly all the exact same ages as their real life counterparts around 1996 and more importantly, they’re mostly all British (or Australian)!

    Sienna Miller as Princess Diana
    Diana was a beautiful woman, inside and out, and while she possessed more of an imperfect beauty, Miller has shown she’s able to tone down her perfect beauty. Also, I know she seems like the kind of actress that’s just a model that acts, but she’s actually given some, while overlooked, brilliant performances for some time now. With Interview, Factory Girl, The Girl, and more recently supporting roles in Foxcatcher, Live by Night, and American Sniper, she’s shown her ability to accurately portray both legendary icons and regular compelling, strong women altogether.

    Ben Mendelsohn as Prince Charles
    Aside from Mendelsohn’s under appreciated talent in basically everything he does (Animal Kingdom, Starred Up, Mississippi Grind), he actually looks very, very similar to young Charles. Plus, he’s the same age and the same amount of years older than Sienna Miller as Charles was to Diana. And he’s no stranger to television, already winning an Emmy for Bloodline.

    Judy Davis as Queen Elizabeth II
    So, she’s kind of a Ryan Murphy regular now, right? Basically. She’s nearing the age Elizabeth II would have been around Charles and Diana’s divorce. I’m not going with the obvious Helen Mirren, Jessica Lange, Maggie Smith choices. Besides Mirren (who already played her), the others don’t really look like her, but as for Davis, she has the EXACT same look in her eyes as the Queen.

    Emily Mortimer as Camilla Parker-Bowles
    I’m not super-familiar with Emily Mortimer, but she’s English, has small eyes, a kind of plain look, she’s closer in age to Ben Mendelsohn/Philip than Sienna Miller/Diana is. I’m sold.

    Charles Dance as Prince Philip
    The Game of Thrones star already bares quite a remarkable resemblance to the Prince and like I said, Game of Thrones so he’s got the British/television/acting chops combination down as well.

    Angela Lansbury as the Queen Mother
    I think this one can speak for itself.

    Matthew Goode as Prince Andrew
    Yeah, I don’t really know much about him either, but he looks pretty perfect to play the more dashing, conventionally handsome brother. He has a very strong likeness to Andrew (back in the day) especially when smiling. Notably, he’s been on The Good Wife so he’s a television guy already and of course, Downton Abbey so he’s a British television guy already too.

    Jennifer Ehle as Princess Anne
    Already a Tony and a BAFTA winner for playing British roles, Ehle has the age, look, talent, and nationality (kind of) to play Anne. Her face, especially her eyes, are so similar to Anne’s in her wedding photos from the ’90s. Ehle will just have to turn her old English accent on and she’s set.

    Isla Fisher as Sarah, Duchess of York
    Without makeup (and eyebrows), I think this redhead could not only pull off the spirited behavior but also the appearance of Fergie.

    And the rest of the roles probably aren’t all that important enough to cast huge superstars anyway. Just get competent actors that look enough like the real life people a la Anne Bancroft and Frank Sinatra in this season of Feud.

    Obviously, this most likely won’t be even close to what we end up with because Ryan Murphy will just cast his usual pets and probably film in his new fav filming location New Orleans and it will be weird and whatever. But.. I tried.
