We already knew that the second season of American Horror Story would be set in a 1960s-era institution for the criminally insane, run by Jessica Lange's new character. But here's a twist: She's playing a nun! "In this instance, she's a bride of Christ," writer Tim Minear tells MTV. Of course, Lange's nun won't be all that chaste, since she'll be pining after potential love interest Joseph Fiennes. But still: Jessica Lange in a habit. Prepare yourself for it.
