Ryan Murphy’s Twitter account doesn’t have much going on, but if you’re living for casting updates about his upcoming anthology series Feud — literally about famous Hollywood feuds — then @MrRPMurphy might be the most exciting content space on the internet for you. On August 16, Murphy announced that Catherine Zeta-Jones would be playing Olivia de Havilland, and today, he has informed us that the Supreme will be coming on board the new project as well. Obviously.

The first season of Feud will have Murphy realizing his destiny and bringing to life the epic Hollywood rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford that became big news while the two icons were filming Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? in 1962. Susan Sarandon will play Davis to Jessica Lange’s Crawford, and with Zeta-Jones in the mix that makes three Oscar-winning actresses playing three Oscar-winning actresses, plus Sarah Paulson, who will win her Oscar as soon as Ryan Murphy decides to direct a movie.
