CastingMy thoughts: Out of all this casting scoop, the news that I’m most excited about is that Joseph Fiennes is in talks to join the cast of American Horror Story for season 2. I really hope that works out, because I’m a huge fan of his work, especially on the TV show FlashForward. I find the timing of this announcement rather interesting, because I’ve been thinking about FlashForward a lot lately, especially about his and Zachary Knighton’s work on the show since they played two of my favorite characters. FlashForward was the first thing I ever saw Zachary Knighton in, and he was initially the reason why I decided to watch Happy Endings when it started, but I digress. Oh, god, I miss FlashForward so much!
