Rihanna ‘enlisting help of psychic as she is paranoid about losing her fame’

Rihanna is reportedly so worried about losing her fame because of her hectic lifestyle, shes’ seeing a psychic.

If she’s not on stage performing for her fans, she’s in the studio, on Twitter or lapping up the life of luxury on a yacht with pals.

Constantly doing something, the 25-year-old has also turned superstitious and has invested in a Buddhist fortune-teller and a psychic for help.

‘Rihanna is exhausted at the moment and feeling lonely,’ a source said.

‘She’s worried her fans could turn against her and is also convinced she’ll lose her fame.

‘It’s made her really superstitious. She sees signs and omens in normal events.

‘Rihanna has been to see a psychic and a fortune-teller, and asked for a look into her future.’

But in addition to her physcic, she’s also got best pal Cara Delevingne on side to help her out.

The source added to The Sun: ‘She has also been spending more and more time with model Cara Delevingne.

‘She has a phone that only Cara and her mum can reach her on. When they are together they stay up all night talking and drinking.

‘Cara is the person she turns to for everything these days, especially when she’s feeling down.

‘They speak and text constantly and are trying to spend as much time together as possible.

‘Rihanna’s bodyguards have a nightmare because they disappear down stairwells and out side doors and go out on childish jaunts when they are out together.’

Natalie Portman to move into directing with of A Tale of Love and Darkness


Oscar-winner Natalie Portman is to become the latest young female Hollywood actor to move into directing with a film adaptation of Israeli novelist Amos Oz's memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness.

The book, which has been translated into 28 languages and has sold more than a million copies worldwide, details Oz's childhood in Jerusalem in the chaotic period at the end of the British Mandate for Palestine, as well as the writer's experiences during the early years of the state of Israel and teenage years on a kibbutz. Portman, who was born in Jerusalem to an Israeli father and an American mother, will also take a supporting role as Oz's mother.

They say Portman is to arrive in Israel in October to cast local actors. The movie will be filmed in Jerusalem in early 2013.

It's not decided if the film will be shot in Hebrew or English. Honig's fund is providing $400,000.

Oz told Reuters he had been helping with the film's screenplay and expected Portman to arrive in Israel in September for pre-production. He said the true-life tale was expected to shoot in January 2014.

"She read A Tale of Love and Darkness and asked me for the rights to make a film adaptation around five or six years ago," he said. "I agreed because of my high esteem for her work. She's an excellent actor."

Portman has not yet made any public comment on the project. The 32-year-old won the best actress Oscar in 2011 for her turn as a troubled ballet dancer in Darren Aronofsky's splintered psychological drama Black Swan. She joins a growing list of female Hollywood stars who are venturing behind the camera. Ellen Page is to make her directorial debut next year with Miss Stevens, starring Anna Faris as a teacher chaperoning a mob of high school students to a state drama competition, while Bridesmaids's Melissa McCarthy will co-direct and star in the raunchy comedy Tammy, also next year.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks Avengers Sequel Quicksilver Role: I'm 'Really Looking Into It, Properly'

Following rampant online speculation that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is in talks to play Quicksilver in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," the actor spoke to Access Hollywood about the role.

"I think it's a really interesting character," the 23-year-old star told Access at the junket for his latest movies, "Kick-Ass 2." Though he couldn't confirm that he has been offered the role, the actor did give us a hint that he's being considered. "I'm really looking into it, properly," he continued. "We'll have to see." Adding, "Joss [Whedon] is a super talented director and has got a fantastic vision, I love what he did with the first 'Avengers.'"

The character - the mutant son of Magneto, who has the ability to move at amazing speeds - will first be seen on the big screen in July 2014 when Evan Peters plays him in "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
Quicksilver's sister, the Scarlet Witch, is also slated to appear in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," which hits theaters on May 1, 2015.

Ronda Rousey’s ‘Body Issue’ picture immortalized in fan tattoo

UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey posed nude for the cover of ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue in 2012. One fan was so moved by the picture he had the image turned into a tattoo. There was some artistic license taken with the tattoo, like UFC gloves instead of the body wraps, but it's not a bad likeness of the champ.

Here's the big question: Rousey's rival coach on the next season of "The Ultimate Fighter" and opponent at UFC 168, Miesha Tate, posed for the Body Issue this year. Will we see some overzealous fan with Tate body ink next year?

Bioshock Infinite DLC takes players back to Rapture

  BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea will take players in a bathysphere back to the emerald city of Rapture for a noir-styled adventure. The second and third pieces of downloadable content (DL-Sea) for Infinite are a far more narrative experience than today's Clash in the Clouds.
The first episode places Infinite protagonists Booker and Elizabeth in Rapture, the underwater city Andrew Ryan built so kindly in the original BioShock, around 1958, two year before the fall. Players will get to experience the city in a time before it became the leaky dream under the sea, with new weapons, new "Plasmids/Vigors," tears, Big Daddies and... apparently some sky-lines.
The second episode will have players taking on the role of Elizabeth. She won't be the bullet-absorbing tank that Booker DeWitt is, as Irrational Studios head Ken Levine explained it'll be a different type of experience. The two packs have been priced at $14.99 apiece (included in the BioShock Infinite Season Pass) with more details and a release date coming soon.

Foxy Brown Caught Stealing a $900 Weave, Hair Stylist Confronts Her

Foxy Brown reportedly stole a $900 weave from a hair salon in Brooklyn. Ill Na Na visted celebrity hair stylist Genevieve "GStar" Jean-Baptiste at the UDJAT Hair Salon and asked to have the fake hair put in her head. But instead of paying her bill, Brown ran out of the shop.

Baptiste followed the rapper out of the salon, confronted her, and caught it all on Instagram video, which you can watch above.

You can hear Jean-Baptiste say, "Give me my money Foxy Brown" and "This is going to all the blogs." Brown does appear to be handing her cash in the clip, though.

don't D.A.R.E. try to knock this woman down when she is making healthy steps for a better life and bustling career!


Flawless Cate thinks she's 'peculiar-looking'

This summer has been pretty bleak for women in film. Most 2013 blockbusters have been heavy on the testosterone, with a few notable exceptions -- including the Cate Blanchett-helmed Woody Allen film, "Blue Jasmine."

In the film, which opened on July 26th, Blanchett reportedly gives a strong performance as a former Manhattan socialite who is recovering from the shame that her husband engaged in questionable sexual and financial activities during their marriage. Playing a woman in the midst of a breakdown was no small feat for Blanchette -- not just emotionally, but physically as well. But when The Hollywood Reporter suggested that a vainer actress may not have agreed to look as physically weathered as Blanchett did, the Academy Award-winning actress insisted that she doesn't see herself in terms of her beauty.

"I didn't think I was that girl. I'm peculiar-looking, I think, she told THR's Scott Feinberg. And Blanchett considers her less-than-perfect looks an asset for her career. "I think it's lucky as an actor that you can sometimes look decent-looking, and then you can also look strange and, dare I say, ugly," she continued. "I think that's good as an actor."

This isn't the first time Blanchett has spoken out about embracing her natural appearance. When Marie Claire UK asked Blanchett if she would ever consider plastic surgery back in 2009, the actress said:

When you've had children, your body changes; there's history to it. I like the evolution of that history; I'm fortunate to be with somebody who likes the evolution of that history. I think it's important to not eradicate it. I look at someone's face and I see the before I see the person.... You're certainly not staving off the inevitable. And if you're doing it out of fear, that fear's still going to be seen through your eyes. The windows to your soul, they say.

Though many would agree that Blanchett is far from unattractive, it's refreshing to hear an actress frankly discuss the way she looks -- not in terms of meeting or failing to fulfill a certain standard, but in terms of her actual career. Because "peculiar-looking" or not, Blanchett is first and foremost a talented actress.

The Cost of Becoming a Superhero

In the opening moments of The Wolverine, a shirtless Hugh Jackman as the title mutant hero saves the life of a Japanese solider just as the A-bomb is dropped over Nagasaki. Thick veins pop on Jackman’s massive arms and shoulders as he holds down the metal shield protecting the solider underneath and his body withstands the terrible heat of the nuclear blast. When the solider finally emerges, he stands in horrified awe as the Wolverine’s super-crispy body slowly heals itself back into its perfect, imposing shape. You can almost see him thinking, “My god, who is this man? And how did he get such enormous shoulders?”

For decades, superheroes lived almost exclusively on the page, their bodies limited only by the imaginations of the artists drawing them. Today, however, a small stable of actors are working mightily to mold their bodies to live up to their respective characters’ superhero physiques. In turn, many fans have obsessively dissected those actors’ grueling workout routines and absurd 5,000-calorie-or-more diets with a breathlessness rarely devoted to their actual performances on screen. We gape in awe not only at the fictional feats of Superman, Batman, and the Wolverine, but at the seemingly superhuman efforts to physically become those characters in the first place.

But rarely do we ask: at what cost?

I figured this would be a good article to post, especially given the fact that in the original posts of Chris Pratt's newest body pic, some people were acting shocked that this kind of yo-yo dieting can be a major health risk.

First Trailer for Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Having slowly carved out a directing career that’s perhaps more impressive than his acting resume, Ben Stiller‘s latest helming work looks to do something quite rare in Hollywood: produce a worthy remake of a classic. Following the 1947 version, this update on The Secret Life of Walter Mitty finds Stiller as a daydreaming magazine photo manager who embarks on an adventure to find a missing negative.

If you saw The Wolverine in theaters last weekend you’ve already seen this trailer, but now 20th Century Fox have made it available online and it’s quite a striking, unexpected preview. Mixing fantasy and reality, all with barely any dialogue, it’s shaping up to be one of our most-anticipated films of the fall and a huge step-up for Stiller in terms of directing scope. Also starring Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Sean Penn, Kathryn Hahn, Shirley MacLaine and Patton Oswalt.


OP: This looks awesome. Really excited for this movie.

ETA: Fox pulled the trailer off youtube. You can see it at yahoo.

"We plan to introduce the recurring character of Barry Allen who is the Flash," Pedowitz told reporters. "We're planning an origin story and we'll see how it goes. We do want to expand on DC Universe, and we felt this is a very organic way to get there."

OWN, Winfrey’s Cable Channel, Turns Around Financially.

After several grueling years, Oprah Winfrey’s cable channel OWN has turned the corner toward profitability, her business partners at Discovery Communications said on Tuesday, six months ahead of a previously stated goal.

In the second quarter, OWN was cash-flow positive for the first time, said David M. Zaslav, Discovery’s chief executive. He credited investments in programming, including two new shows from Tyler Perry, and increases in subscriber fees from cable and satellite providers.

OWN, which is a joint venture between Ms. Winfrey and Discovery, is now “starting to pay down the investment Discovery has made in the venture,” Mr. Zaslav said.

When the channel was announced in mid-2008, Discovery said it would provide the cable shelf space for Ms. Winfrey (by converting the Discovery Health Channel into OWN) and $300 million in loans.

James Deen On Michael Bay: 'He's Garbage, But His Movies Make Lots Of Money'

Porn star James Deen begins his assault on the mainstream with the release of "The Canyons" on Aug. 2, but don't expect to see Deen in the next big blockbuster from director Michael Bay. Deen, who plays the male lead in Paul Schrader's new film opposite Lindsay Lohan, slammed Bay as common trash in a new interview.

“You make that mass-produced, Hollywood blockbuster crap, you end up with Michael Bay's 'Transformers 11,'" Deen told the New York Post. "He's garbage, but his movies make lots of money. [...] [I was interested in] making a good movie and not bowing to the capitalist theory of Hollywood."

To that end, Deen told the Post that he isn't interested in leaving the XXX world behind. “People talk to me like this is my big crossover to the mainstream. Absolutely not,” Deen told the Post. "I have no desire to leave porn."

Indeed, those comments were echoed by Schrader. The director said that despite all the press surrounding "The Canyons," Deen still has his heart in the adult world. "I was just talking to him the other day. He's still hard at work; he was complaining about going to Venice, because he was going to lose money, going to lose $10,000 of work time," Schrader told BuzzFeed. "I said, 'James, at some point you’ve got to get out.'"

Exclusive: Lindsay Lohan Circling Great New Movie Role in Ben Affleck Film

Exclusive: Lindsay Lohan is getting out of rehab on Saturday, kids. It’s been 90 days, she’s fresh as a daisy, and determined to turn over a new leaf. One thing is for sure: we know she can act. Paul Schrader’s “The Canyons” screened here last night in New York and Lindsay got kudos (in absentia) from everyone. Indeed, as Schrader said, she’s grown out of the ingenue stage and into a new chapter as a tough cookie, a broad. Think Annette Bening in “The Grifters.”

And so: it does seem as though Lindsay is going to be in Ben Affleck’s next directing project. Ben is putting together “Live by Night,” based on the novel by Dennis Lehane. Lindsay is thisclose to signing on– possibly as Emma, the tough waitress with a heart of gold who gets involved with the two male leads. “Live By Night” is a crime noir period piece, and Lindsay would be perfect for it.

In the meantime, Lindsay has agreed to be followed around by Oprah’s documentary crew for the first 45 days of her return home to New York. She’s going to be living “The Truman Show.” What better way to keep her on the straight and narrow?

However when we unveiled One Direction as the cover stars of our September issue last night, we weren't quite prepared for how many tweets we would receive in such a short space of time.

Although the issue doesn't even go on sale until Thursday, a lot of the band's fan base took issue with certain cover lines, in particular one on Harry Styles' cover, "He's Up All Night To Get Lucky."

Jay Z Says This Generation Doesn't 'See Color In That Way.' Remains Dead Wrong.

Jay Z claims to be so bothered by George Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict that he “didn’t sleep for two days” — yet the rapper is far from joining his fellow artists’ boycott on Florida.

While the likes of Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Usher and Rod Stewart are boycotting Florida until it repeals Stand Your Ground — Jigga and Justin Timberlake are getting ready to head to Florida to perform in Miami’s “Legends of Summer” concert.

Now, it appears Jigga is playing both sides of the fence for the Benjamin’s. Know why? ‘Cause dude isn’t only is saying “a professional law enforcement officer is taught not to profile” … he’s also says “this generation, they don’t see color in that way.”

not surprised he said this. not one bit. I actually expected it. he's under some delusional impression that because a bunch of white kids listen to his music, and because music is now "integrated," that that suddenly now means that they're not racists or don't ~think like racists. #bye

Iggy Azalea is amazingly real

We met up with the Australian rapper Amethyst Amelia Kelly aka Iggy Azalea, who just two days ago announced that she’s going on Beyoncè’s ”Mrs. Carter World Tour,” for a very relaxed photo shoot and a little heart to heart.

The blonde beauty with the pouty lips and almond eyes has been living in the U.S. for a few years now but her accent is with no doubt still very Aussie. On a personal note, I find this significantly likeable and professionally it connects her with the Australian fans in a remarkable way. “I don’t get a lot of comments on my accent from the people in the U.S. but the Australians love it.”

What we love is that Iggy is amazingly real. Behind her fake nails and perfect makeup she shows herself approachable and open-minded. “Most people just ask me, is that your face?” she says faking a thick American accent, noticeably happy when I identify the tattoo on her lower arm as a simplified cartoon-style head of The Birth of Venus by Botticelli.

What Happened to the Cast of Clarissa Explains It All?

For every pre-teen girl in the ’90s, Clarissa Darling was a hero – who also happened to “know it all.” The show, which aired for five seasons on Nickelodeon from 1991 to 1994, followed Clarissa’s life as she navigated the troubles of boys, family (especially annoying younger brothers), and school. It’s been credited as being the first Nick show with a female lead, and it’s success made the network less hesitant to follow the same formula for other teen sitcoms.

So, what’s the cast doing today?

Kanye West 'Sent Prince Clothes'

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly sent a baby gift to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The British royal couple welcomed their first baby, HRH Prince George Alexander Louis, into the world in a London hospital on July 22.

According to UK newspaper The Sun, Kanye and Kim, who recently welcomed a child of their own, were keen to congratulate the couple.

Apparently they sent Catherine and William clothes for the newborn prince that reflect Kanye's style.

"They sent William and Kate mini versions of Kanye's clobber, including skinny jeans and hoodies," the outlet reports.

It's unknown how well the royal couple received the reported gift.

"It depends if the Cambridges want to dress him in it," a source said of whether they will acknowledge the offering.

The Duke and Duchess are currently enjoying their first weeks of parenthood out of the spotlight, after introducing their son to the world last week.

Discount 'Goodies': Ciara's New Album Being Hawked on Groupon

Ciara's self-titled new album has generally been seen as some sort of return to prominence for her. The Atlanta singer spent a year fighting through a number of false-start singles, which themselves came on the heels of her worst-selling LP, 2010's Basic Instinct. Ciara spawned "Body Party," her biggest hit in ages and has spun off another single, the Nicki Minaj-starring "I'm Out," to help her momentum decelerate at a respectably slow pace. But someone at her label, Epic, must not be happy with her first-week sales of 58,000, because it's come to this: Ciara's album is now available on Groupon.

That's right! You have three days left to order the following two-CD bundle featuring Ciara and an almost-greatest hits collection titled Playlist: The Very Best of Ciara. The double-disc offer is available for the discounted price of $13.99, which, to be honest, doesn't seem that cheap at all. You can order her new album on Amazon for just $8 and make a playlist of her hits on, say, Spotify. That is unless you're dying to own a physical copy of this weirdly assembled cash-in that features random mixes of hits you may have once loved. But why would you want that?

Nonetheless, Ciara's life seems to be going pretty well. She was recently in the Bahamas and driving a Bentley, not to mention the fact that she's dating Future. How bad can things really be?

Michael B. Jordan Tells Bill Simmons: I'm Making a Basketball-Themed TV Show


"Fruitvale Station" star Michael B. Jordan is developing a basketball-themed TV show set in Detroit, the actor told Grantland's Bill Simmons on Moday's edition of popular podcast The B.S. Report.

It's unclear whether Jordan intends to act on the show or simply stay behind the scenes in a producing capacity. A representative for the actor had no comment.

After Simmons gave his guest some career advice (not that he needs any), Jordan responded, "Why don't you produce one of my TV shows I've been working on?"

"Is it a sports one? Will there be balls?" asked Simmons, who taped the interview on Friday.

"Yes, definitely. Basketballs," said Jordan, who revealed that the show is set in Detroit and in the vein of his past series "Friday Night Lights" and "The Wire." It's unclear whether the series would follow a high school, college, or professional basketball team.

Kris Allen, Wife Katy O'Connell Welcome Baby Boy Oliver Neil!

Kris Allen is a dad! The season eight American Idol winner, 28, welcomed a baby boy with his wife, Katy O'Connell, on Tuesday, July 30, his rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

"Little Oliver Neil Allen is here!" the rep tells Us. "He's 7 pounds, 7 ounces, 20 3/4 inches long. Mom and baby are doing great."

Allen first revealed his wife's pregnancy in January, after he was injured in a car accident. "Thank you, Ford, for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family and the little one we have on the way safe," he tweeted. "Yes, I got in a really bad wreck tonight, and yes, I'm having a lil baby."

Two months later, he opened up about first-time fatherhood-to-be at the SXSW Festival in Austin. "I am really excited," he gushed. "I've always wanted to be a dad...[Katy has] already started buying him clothes like mine. He's already got some [fedoras]."

This is the first child for the singer and his wife. Together since high school, they married in September 2008.


Spin Doctor Who? Peter Capaldi favourite to replace Matt Smith as the BBC's new Time Lord?

Peter Capaldi has become the bookies’ latest favourite to play the title role in Doctor Who.

William Hill reported there has been a surge of bets on Capaldi taking over from Matt Smith in the BBC science fiction drama at the end of the year.

The actor, 55, known for playing hot-headed Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It, has been placed above Ben Daniels and Rory Kinnear to play the 12th Doctor.

Capaldi has surged to the top of the bookies’ list after a flurry of low-level bets under £50, making up 60 per cent of all bets placed on who will be named the next Doctor.

Joe Crilly, a spokesperson for William Hill, said: “Peter Capaldi was not even in our list a few days ago but he has been the subject of a lot of betting interest recently and this gamble would suggest that if he does not have the part already, he is almost certainly on the shortlist.

It is thought that Capaldi’s name began to surface after Doctor Who creator Steven Moffat said he would not rule out casting an older Doctor.

He said: “We’ve never not considered an older Doctor. It is completely on all the lists we make- there are absolutely older Doctors.”

Other actors who have been linked to the role in the past few weeks include David Harewood, Rory Kinnear, Dan Stevens, Bill Bailey, Daniel Rigby and Damien Molony.

Previous frontrunner Rory Kinnear has slipped to third place at the bookies after he revealed he had never seen an episode of Doctor Who.

Odds to replace Matt Smith as the Doctor

Peter Capaldi: 2/1

Ben Daniels: 4/1

Rory Kinnear: 6/1

Ben Whishaw: 10/1

David Harewood: 10/1

Jerry Bruckheimer Says 'The Lone Ranger' Will Eventually Be Looked Upon As A “Brave, Wonderful Film”

The decision was likely decided upon for some time, but when Johnny Depp revealed he'd been toying with plans of retirement, it was difficult not to think of Disney's “The Lone Ranger” as a deciding factor. Three weeks on from its tepid $50 million opening, critics have both continued to bury it and risen to its defense, and while the dust slowly clears for everyone involved to move on, producer Jerry Bruckheimer believes in the end that distance will prove the best perspective.

During the TV Critics Association press tour while promoting his new CBS thriller “Hostages,” Bruckheimer briefly brought up his decades of experience in the business, and pointed to a corresponding moment that displayed similar symptoms. "It reminds me of a critic who called 'Flashdance' a 'toxic dump,'" he said of his 1983 producing effort. "Ten years later [the critic] said, 'This is really a good movie. I missed it.' I think ['Lone Ranger'] going to be looked back on as a brave, wonderful film."

Among those who have seen it, a lack of boldness doesn't seem to be an overwhelming criticism of the film; director Gore Verbinski attempts a unique blend of historical elements, jarring violence, and crowd-pleasing tendencies that doesn't quite gel. But while the waiting game begins for Bruckheimer to be vindicated in his comments, the producer believes Europe had a fairer glance at the film than America.

"You always want to get good reviews, but you know, it's reversed in Europe," he said. "It's 70 percent good reviews and 30 percent mixed there. So, that happens." What do you think? Is "The Lone Ranger" destined to ride into the sunset as a future classic?

Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto to Divorce

Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto are calling it quits after two years of marriage.

The couple "have decided to amicably split. They will continue to remain good friends," his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

The Vampire Diaries star, 31, and Pretty Little Liars actress, 29, met in 2007 on the set of their film Killer Movie. They were married in a private ceremony in New York City in April 2011.

DeVitto also appears on Vampire Diaries; in 2012, Wesley spoke of the benefits of working on the same set. "It's fantastic because otherwise we'd be 2000 miles away, Los Angeles and Georgia, so it's very nice to be in the same geographical location," he said at the time.

Robin Thicke Calls ‘Blurred Lines’ a ‘Feminist Movement Within Itself’

If you've been holding off on enjoying Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" because of the possible interpretation of its subtext or the way the song's music video treats its models with about the same respect that a horseman has for his prize pony (to be fair, the models' manes are extra shiny and, boy, can they canter!), let go and enjoy! "Blurred Lines" isn't anti-feminist — it's actually super feminist because it defends every woman's independence ("that man is not your maker") and right to have sex with Robin Thicke.

A Message from Spencer

For the past 4 and a half years I’ve been battling addiction. Well, to be honest, I’ve really been battling it for the last two years. Those first 2 and a half years were spent in a place where I thought I had finally found the correct dosage of my personally prescribed medicine to feel “normal"…..In reality, I was mostly stumbling through my life hoping no one noticed I was high.

Anna Torv + Jennifer Jason Leigh cast in Ryan Murphy HBO Pilot

Ryan Murphy has cast two talented, well-known actresses to lead his sexy HBO pilot.

Fox’s Fringe star Anna Torv and veteran performer Jennifer Jason Leigh (most recently seen on Showtime’s Weeds and ABC’s Revenge) have joined the cast of Open.

The pilot is described as “a modern, provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships.” Anna Torv will play Windsor, “a yoga instructor in a long-term relationship with Holly (Jennifer Jason Leigh), but upon meeting Grace feels an instant connection.” Now Murphy just needs to cast Joshua Jackson and John Noble to bring the dreams of Fringe fan fiction to life!

The actresses join actors Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley, who were previously announced.

Open is from American Horror Story writer-producer Murphy and Dexter co-executive producer Lauren Gussis; it’s produced by Fox 21.


Really happy to have Anna back on my tv screen. And at least we all know this show will be amazing for one season before sinking to the depths of hell!
