by at . Comments

Ryan Murphy has hooked an Oscar winner.

Kathy Bates will portray a pivotal role on American Horror Story Season 3, multiple sources confirm, coming on board the unusual FX drama in a mysterious role.

All we know is this: Bates will portray the best friend of a character played by fellow acting heavyweight Jessica Lange, only to eventually turn on her pal.

Murphy says the role will be the most evil of Bates' impressive career.

The third season of American Horror Story will feature many of the same cast members as the first two, but will be set in modern times.

Viewers can also expect some kind of Romeo-and-Juliet romance to play out, but little else is known about what's to come. New episodes of the series will air on FX in October.
