Angela Bassett as a Voodoo Lady named Marie Laveau (another man dead and gone*)! Kathy Bates as Delphine LaLaurie, one of the cruelest bitches of all time – we wrote a piece back in March making an estimated guess LaLaurie would be the “real life woman” Ryan Murphy had revealed at the time Bates would portray- read the piece and about her here (but the details of her blood-curdling crimes are not for the squeamish, so there’s a separate link in the post itself if you want to read the really gruesome stuff). We’re still patting ourselves on the back for calling it; we’re also guessing that the Bates storyline will be the least “fun and campier-toned” of Season 3 of American Horror Story. We’re positive about one thing, though: We! Can’t! WAIT!
*according to the lyrics to the song of the same name. Plus, she “lived in a swamp in a hollow log/ with a one-eyed snake and a 3-legged dog/ bare bony body and-a-stringy hair/ if she ever see’d your face ’round there, she’d go (Scream) another man dead and gone.” Oh, and also: “if she ever asks you to make her a wife, then you best stick with her for the rest of her life, or it’ll be (Scream) another man dead and gone”! We’ll add more actual details on the voodoo priestess NOT based on the lyrics of a song soon. Plus maybe a mp3 of the song. We doubt LaLaurie had any upbeat, catchy-ass songs written about her.
