'American Horror Story': Chloe Sevigny Reportedly Joins Cast For Season 2

Chloe Sevigny is reportedly in final negotiations to appear in Season 2 of "American Horror Story."

According to EW, Sevigny would play Shelly, a nymphomaniac who is one of Jessica Lange's character's mortal enemies.

The former "Big Love" star isn't the only new cast member headed to the FX drama. Maroon 5 frontman and "The Voice" coach Adam Levine is set to play himself on the series.

"It's going to be fun and I told [creator Ryan Murphy] I didn't really know what i was doing, but he didn't seem to care," Levine said in an interview with Ryan Seacrest. "So, I'm going to go and just try to be acting. I think I'm going to be playing myself, so hopefully it will be easy."

Sevigny, if she signs on, and Levine join confirmed returning cast members Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters and Lily Rabe. But in Season 2, these "American Horror Story" vets will apparently play completely new characters since the sophomore season will be drastically different from its first season, including an East Coast setting in another era.

"[Season 2] has nothing to do with Season 1; there's not a mention of Season 1," Murphy said. "The second season is set in a completely different time period."

Since the end of "Big Love," Sevigny has continued to appear on the small screen: She recently appeared on an episode of "Law & Order: SVU" and has an upcoming DirecTV miniseries called "Hit and Miss," which she opened up to HuffPost TV about.
