I don’t think I can handle waiting till late Summer/early Fall to find out where Season 3 of American Horror story is set, and what the scenario is.

‘American American Horror Story Asylum – Ryan Murphy Talks Season Finale, (SPOILERS) Plus Even ‘More Ambitious’ Season 3 — EW.Com EXCLUSIVE by Tim Stack

OK, my eyes are still red from crying after the Sister Jude segment–I had to pause the TV for over five minutes before I could even fast-forward to the next act*, so I’ll hold off on writing more myself for now–and EW.com‘s Tim Stack has a ton of exclusive info from Ryan Murphy. Oooh, can’t wait till Season 3. This finale, though, was perfect… and the last scene gave me chills. Click the link for some REALLY interesting (and thoughtful) scoop from EW.com!

*Though I perked up seeing what became of now-Cardinal Howard. That was the first time in the episode I emphatically said loudly, “Yes. GOOD!”

New Interview: Dylan McDermott Talks American Horror Story Asylum Finale And Ben Harmon, Upcoming Horror Projects, Favorite Horror Movies, What Scares Him, And Much More! (SPOILERS)

[McDermott] goes as far to admit that portraying the character of Johnny Thredson has begun to “creep him out” in minor, tell-tale ways, left him a tad unnerved and has invaded his own dreams. “It’s funny, because with this particular role you don’t know it when it’s happening, because it’s unconscious,” McDermott offers. “But, yeah, this guy has gotten under my skin a little bit, I have to say.”

We expected something we’d heard before, even though this interview from ©Digital Journal only was published about six hours ago. We get a tiny bit of older information, but a ton of new information (as well as a personal tragedy in McDermott’s past that we were surprised–and very saddened–to learn he’d had to go through). The article focuses on his roles in American Horror Story S1 and S2 (“Look, I really love this show, I mean, if I wasn’t on the series, I’d be watching it”), why he loves working with Ryan Murphy, why Rosemary’s Baby should never be remade, and more.

Oh, and if you have the hots for him (or even a little crush), there are PLENTY of photos. Again, he sounds like a cool guy – and we wouldn’t mind sitting down with him and talking about our favorite horror movies.

 

While there has been some talk of a big screen “reinterpretation” of Rosemary’s Baby for several years now, McDermott promises that if a script for a remake of the Polanski classic ever pops up on his desk, he will immediately deposit it where it rightfully belongs – in the trash bin. (Ha-ha! Good for him-HB)

Plus, any actor that knowingly signs up for filming a nude scene while crying and whacking off* at the same time (in broad daylight, as we recall) is pretty goddamned fearless – especially when it’s broadcast on basic cable, rather than a direct-to-DVD limited indie that you’d have to go out of your way to see.

Here’s a link to the entire article for you to sink your teeth into:

Dylan McDermott is back home at ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ (Includes interview and first-hand account).

 

Also, we tossed in some quotes from the interviews to get you started (the copyright for the interview belongs to digitaljournal.com and was written by © Earl Dittman).

On working with Ryan Murphy to develop Johnny’s character:

McDermott does cop to adding one aspect to Thredson’s persona that wasn’t originally scripted for the character. “You see him smoking some crack… I needed him to have an outlet for feelings, and then when I started smoking crack, they started putting it into scenes. That was an important thing. I wanted him to be high, because a lot of these guys are high, and a lot of people do, obviously, terrible things on drugs. It was important for me to have him to be a drug addict as well.”

*Hey, get your mind out of the gutter! It’s already too crowded down here. I said to have Kleenex ready because the episode is supposed to be a tear-jerker. I’m already feeling blue it’s going to be over, I don’t need to be crying my ass off like I did at the last scene of the first-season episode, “Birth,” on top of it all.  I’ll be sad when it’s over, but I also can’t WAIT to see it!
