Emma Roberts joins 'American Horror Story'


Actress Emma Roberts starred in the feature film Scream 4 and apparently showed enough aptitude for horror that FX has decided to add her to its marquee scary series.

Roberts has been cast in the upcoming season of American Horror Story, which has the subtitle of Coven. No real details have been revealed about Roberts' role in the program yet, besides the fact that she is a "party girl." So she is either dead meat or a secret witch, right?

In addition to Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Gabourey Sidibe and Kathy Bates have signed on to join returning cast members Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe and Jessica Lange.

The third season will focus on witches, but details beyond that are scarce. Producers for the show said in March that they were looking for the scariest places in America to film in.

Series co-creator Ryan Murphy has also revealed that three characters will be based on real people, including Bates' character.

Roberts' boyfriend Evan Peters is also returning to the series, which he has been a part of since the first season.

Roberts was attached to Fox's adaptation of Delirium, but with that being passed on she became available for this series.
