    I think Michelle Pfeiffer fits the bill.

    I think Paulson will be the new lead of the show and will be the face of the show.

    I’m assuming that this discussion is only open to veteran actresses (as it should be). I would love to see Sally Field for some reason, I don’t know why though ahah

    I’d love that too. She’s my favorite actress.

     

    TCM just announced that Sally Field will be the new co-host for their The Essentials showcase program:

    There’s also the chance that Jessica Lange just comes back for another season. I rememebr when she was originally only going to be a supporting player in season, but she changed her mind when Murphy brought her the character.

    I hope Ryan Murphy writes a great storyline
    and throws a boatload of $$$$$ to Lange
    because she is needed for that show to
    keep succeeding….her acting on 4 seasons
    has been phenomenal and i cannot imagine
    anyone else carrying that show..

    Thats how I feel, that no one can replace Jessica Lange on the show, but if she really does go than I think Sarah Paulson should be the lead!

    I have to 100% disagree with this.  In fact, I do not know the last time I disagreed with something so strongly.  If I had my way, Jessica Lange would never have a prominent role on American Horror Story again, including next season.  I’ve grown so tired of her bat shit crazy old woman schtick that if I never see it again that would be A Okay.

    I know for some people it may be a radical idea, but why don’t they shake things up next season and bring in new actors and a new lead?  Heaven forbid maybe we could even have a male lead for once.  The closest they have come to that was in season 1, Murder House, when Dylan McDermott was a co-lead with Connie Britton. 

    Instead of using American Horror Story as an excuse to cast his famous friends and legendary divas, maybe Ryan Murphey could actually focus on writing a good show that makes sense and is entertaining.  It seems he is more focused on getting as many famous people on the show as he can and then has no idea what to do with them when they join the show.

    I really hope they burn everything to the ground and start over from the start.  I love Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, etc., but four seasons of them is enough.  Maybe a new and fresh start for the series might be a good thing.

    No one needs to actually come and replace her outright – we have a fantastic cast already of Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Patti LaBelle, Frances Conroy – one of them should just be bumped up.

    I also think we should have a more male-centric season, and with next season most likely being about nuclear testing, we could have a season set in the military.
