Connie Britton Books Ryan Murphy’s Horror Pilot

Tami Taylor isn't out of the game yet. Friday Night Lights veteran Connie Britton has signed on to play the female lead in Ryan Murphy's FX pilot American Horror Story, reports TVLine. She's the first actor cast in the project, but if FX picks it up to series, her commitment won't be long: The show's intention is to recast from top to bottom every season. (And if Britton's role as Mrs. Coach gave you the warm-and-fuzzies every week, watch out, because we hear that Horror Story is dark as hell.) [TVLine]
