'American Horror Story': Jessica Lange On Ryan Murphy, Constance Langdon

When Jessica Lange first took on her "American Horror Story" role, she didn't know what to expect out of her character Constance Langodon ... except that it would be good.

"I had no idea what the character would be or how it was going to work," Lange said in an interview with the L.A. Times. "But what swayed me was Ryan's insistence that he was going to write a part that would be fascinating for me to play. There aren't a lot of writers who promise you that. And I haven't been disappointed at all."

One season later, Lange has taken home a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Constance and is getting ready for Season 2. Not only will the second season have a new setting, but it boasts a number of new cast members including Adam Levine, Jenna Dewan, James Cromwell, Chloe Sevigny and Lizzie Brocheré.

While Levine is excited for his "gory" new role (the details have been kept under wraps), he admits he's a little afraid to actually watch the show.

"I'm still too scared to watch it," Levine said. "But I'm gonna try and beat my fear of really creepy, scary things like that by doing it. I think that's a good way to tackle that fear."
