Franka PotenteAmerican Horror Story Exclusive: Bourne Actress Franka Potente Joins Season 2 Cast as [Spoiler]

According to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, Franka Potente will be guest-starring in two episodes of the second season of American Horror Story. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The Run Lola Run actress — who appeared opposite Matt Damon in the first two Bourne flicks — will play a mysterious patient of the facility in a two-episode arc.


As previously reported, Season 2 of the Emmy-nominated FX series will take place in a 1960s insane asylum on the East Coast. Jessica Lange will play a nun who’s in charge of the facility, and her Season 1 castmates Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lily Rabe will return to portray completely new characters, as well.


Potente, who will next star in BBC’s America’s first original series Copper, is the latest in a slew of cast additions that includes Chloe Sevigny, Lizzie Brocheré, Joseph Fiennes, James Cromwell, Britne Oldford, Mark Consuelos, Clea Duvall, Jenna Dewan and Chris Zylka.


The new season is set to premiere in October.

My thoughts: I loved Franka Potente in The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy, so I’m really excited that she’ll be guest-starring in season 2 of American Horror Story. The more I hear about season 2, the more excited I am for season 2 to start. Based on all of the casting news that’s been announced so far for season 2, I think the second season of American Horror Story is going to be awesome.
