‘American Horror Story’ actress Jessica Lange is moving on to become a part of a great American drama, when she stars in ‘Long Day's Journey Into Night’ on Broadway next year.

Written by Eugene O’Neill, the semi-autobiographical work was first performed in 1956, three years after the Nobel laureate’s death.

The actress will make a return for the fifth season of 'AHS' in the fall, having previously made a guest appearance in the second series.
It may have suffered the loss of Jessica Lange from its cast recently, but the new season of FX’s ‘American Horror Story’ is continuing to build a pretty impressive looking new roll call with the addition of Chloe Sevigny today.
On Tuesday morning, the show’s executive producer Ryan Murphy announced via Twitter that Sevigny would be making a return to the program in a more permanent role. Fans may remember that she made a brief - but memorable - appearance during the second season (‘Asylum’), playing Shelley the nymphomaniac.

Jessica Lange has confirmed she is saying goodbye to American Horror Story.
Jessica Lange has announced she is officially leaving American Horror Story and will not appear in the upcoming fifth season of the FX anthology series. The 65-year-old revealed the news at Sunday's PaleyFest.
Jessica Lange has announced she is leaving American Horror Story
"I'm done," Lange said. "We've had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I've had the opportunity to play, and in all madness, I love the writers and Ryan and the insanity of shooting it."

Good news and bad news.
American Horror Story will never be the same after this announcement. On Saturday, the show had a panel at Paley Fest, during which Jessica Lange confirmed her departure. Now, before you go completely removing the Ryan Murphy show from your fall TV schedule, there are some good news too.
Four seasons and two Emmy awards in, Jessica Lange has had enough.
Like, guess who’s coming in for next season (creatively titled American Horror Story: Hotel). Does the name Matt Bomer ring a bell? The Suits star will definitely be in the line-up, although the part he will play is still a mystery.
With a strangely simplistic screenplay by William Monahan (The Departed), director Rupert Wyatt and his cast struggle to dig beneath the surface in a meaningful way. Mark Wahlberg does what he can in the lead role as a self-destructive gambling addict, but since he's never remotely likeable it's impossible to care what happens to him. It's decently made, but without strong characters or a resonant message the movie ultimately feels like a vanity project that's gone wrong somewhere along the way.
Wahlberg plays Jim, a swaggering university professor who torments his brightest student Amy (Larson) in front of the whole class. But she knows that he's also unable to pass a blackjack table without losing a small fortune. And it's probably money he owes to someone. Indeed, he's accruing such severe debts to a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams) that he turns to his millionaire mother (Jessica Lange) for help, knowing that if she gives him the cash he'll gamble it away before settling his accounts. So he also turns to tough loan shark Frank (John Goodman), who stresses to Jim the importance of paying up and getting out of the betting world for good. But Jim seems incapable of even a shred of self-control.
It's virtually impossible to connect with a character this one-sided. Aside from his literary intelligence, there's nothing remotely redeeming about Jim, so it's difficult to escape the feeling that he's getting just what he deserves. And it gets worse when he starts romancing Amy, a nubile girl barely half his age. Wahlberg never plays Jim as anything but an unapologetic loser who has orchestrated his own misfortune. So why should we care what happens to him? At least the side characters interject a bit of complexity, most notably Lange and Goodman, who command the entire film with just a couple of scenes each. The usually terrific Larson barely registers in an underwritten role that makes very little logical sense.

Jim Bennett is an English professor at a college and he's also always been one for taking risks. By day he is the sensible, bookish type but by night his life is a dangerous spiral of gambling huge amounts of money to dire consequences. As the gambler he is, he takes a chance in asking his bank to loan him a quarter of a million dollars in order for him to pay back a gangster so that he may stay alive, but when that fails he is forced to take on the services of a loan shark named Frank. Meanwhile, his relationship with his mother is getting tenser and tenser by the day as she wishes more than anything for her little boy to be safe. Also, it seems a student of his named Amy Phillips has discovered his secret life, but wants more than anything for him to take her out to dinner even if it will wreck his school reputation.
