Chloe Sevigny in talks to join 'American Horror Story'

By Robert Kirchgassner ,

Actress Chloe Sevigny may be appearing in the second season of American Horror Story.

She is currently in negotiations to play a character named Shelly the Nymphomaniac.

Sevigny recently guest-starred on Law & Order: SVU.

Adam Levine has already been confirmed for appearances on Story’s upcoming season. Evan Peters, Zachary Quinto and Jessica Lange are all set to return.

The new season will also have a different setting, story arc and characters unrelated to what was seen in the first season.

The new setting will be a mental institution on the East Coast run by Lange, who will be Shelly’s nemesis.

Sevigny is also known for her Oscar-nominated performance in Boys Don’t Cry (1999) and for being the lead on the HBO series Big Love, which won her a Golden Globe Award.

She will also star in an upcoming Directv miniseries called Hit and Miss. In it, she plays a contract killer.

“It's a six-part miniseries we shot in Manchester, England,” the actress said. “I play an Irish boy/girl from a Traveler's community, which is like the Irish gypsies. It's more about her and this family that she kind of falls into, these children she kind of inherits and how she learns to cope with being in a parental role.”
