American Horror Story has cast Emma Roberts in the upcoming witch-centric, New Orleans–set third season. According to TVLine, Roberts — whose Fox pilot didn't get picked up — will play a "self-involved party girl." She joins AHS returning cast members Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Francis Conroy, and Jessica Lange, as well as fellow new members of the fold Gabourey Sidibe, Kathy Bates, Angela Basset, and Patti Lupone. AHS: Coven doesn't start up until October, but baffling horrors and disfiguring surprises surround us at all times.
