Thanks to my good friend Sara, Jessica Lange Web is back under the domain JessicaLange.US so please update your links and bookmarks! I will have a new layout and some gallery updates in the next week, so please stay tuned!
I have added images of Jessica from the missing events to our gallery.
For those “American Horror Story” fans dismayed that Season 5 won’t include Jessica Lange — take heart. She may be checking into the “Hotel” after all.
Lange tells The Wrap that if the circumstances were right, she’d love to return for a small arc. “If [creator Ryan Murphy] came to me and said, ‘Would you want to do a small character for a couple episodes?’ I would absolutely say yes if I liked it. This was a great collaboration, so I would love to keep working with him.”

Of course, that also means maybe Lange will be back in future seasons past “Hotel’s” run in late 2015. Just because she doesn’t pop up in Season 5 doesn’t mean she couldn’t return down the line, since the show starts over with a new story each year.
It doesn’t sound as though she’d be on board to anchor a season again, like she did with “Asylum,” “Coven” and “Freak Show,” but hey — viewers will take some more Lange any way they can get her.
“American Horror Story: Hotel” premieres October 2015.
Jessica Lange has said that she’s flattered to be compared to Caitlyn Jenner.
Jenner revealed a dramatic image overhaul today (June 1), as she continues the process of transitioning to live as a woman.
Many Twitter users noticed similarities between American Horror Story star Lange and the shots taken of Jenner for Vanity Fair.
After being told of the meme by the Daily Beast, Lange declared: “Oh really? That’s so wonderful.
“Well now I’m going to have to look for that picture.”
Lange went on to acknowledge that she was initially totally unaware of the comparison to Jenner.
“Trending on Twitter because Caitlyn Jenner on the cover – you see I don’t do any of this stuff, the Internet,” she admitted.
“So I have no clue when people use this terminology. I have to repeat it to understand.”
Jenner formally introduced herself on Twitter today, breaking US president Barack Obama’s record as the fastest person to reach 1 million Twitter followers.
Jenner has been embraced with love and support on Twitter today from family members like Kim Kardashian West, fans like Lena Dunham and organizations like Planned Parenthood.
Her transition will be documented in an E! reality series to air this summer.
Just don’t call it an American horror story. Lange and Byrne will play the grandiose aging matinee idol James Tyrone, famed as the Count Of Monte Cristo, and his morphine-addicted wife Mary in Jonathan Kent’s new revival of the Eugene O’Neill modern classic. The production, slated for next spring, will be a Roundabout Theatre Company presentation, with enhancement funding from Ryan Murphy, the producer of Lange‘s successful American Horror Story franchise on FX.
Lange has been promising to play the role on Broadway ever since she won great notices and an Olivier Award nomination for a 2000 West End revival staged by Robin Phillips and co-starring Charles Dance. Guardian critic Michael Billington wrote that “Lange, in a magnificently unsentimental performance, reminds us that Mary is a woman who constantly twists the knife in the family’s wounds. You can argue that her addiction is to blame; and Lange captures astonishingly Mary’s transition during the day from nervous, hankie-twisting tension to dreamy narcotic escape. But, without judging the character, Lange shows it is her endless picking at the familial scabs that is the real source of agony.”
ByrneByrne (In Treatment) returns to O’Neill on Broadway, having led key revivals of A Moon For The Misbegotten and (for the Roundabout) A Touch Of The Poet. Tony Award-winner John Gallagher (Spring Awakening; recently of The Newsroom) has signed on to play their sickly son Edmund. The rest of the cast and team will be announced later.
Actress Jessica Lange expressed little surprise that a movie studio reportedly turned down 37-year-old actress Maggie Gyllenhaal as “too old,” declaring that the entire movie making industry was run from a “male point of view.”
“Even if a woman runs a studio, she still does it with a male point of view,” Lange, the lead actor on the FX series American Horror Story, said in an interview with TheWrap.
“That men continue to be fascinating and attractive and virile, and women age and are no longer sexual or beautiful ,” she said. “It’s a fantasy that has nothing to do with reality.”
