Oscar-winner Kathy Bates is joining the cast of "American Horror Story." TVLine first broke the news that the feisty silver-screen actress will play the frenemy of current AHS star Jessica Lange (who becomes a “glamour cat leading lady" this season).

So far, we know that season three will be “more historical in nature” than previous seasons--although it takes place in the modern day--and it'll be funnier, promises series creator Ryan Murphy. Based on all these new developments, it seems that season three will deliver something for all AHS fans.
