News hit just a few days ago Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) was cast as Vivien Harmon in the pilot for FX's new show from Ryan Murphy (Glee) and his creative partner on Nip/Tuck, Brad Falchuck. Although there aren't an abundance of details about the project there are however character details for the upcoming show that have been released and from the descriptions it looks as though Murphy is really getting back to his Nip/Tuck roots.
Ben Harmon: Though as sensitive as a woman, this 40ish therapist is also a man’s man.
Vivien Harmon: Ben’s gorgeous wife, she is a force to be reckoned with in spite of her vulnerable demeanor.
Violet: The Harmons’ 16-year-old daughter is a Goth with more issues than a Borders magazine rack.
Tate Langdon: This 17 year old is as dangerous as he is seductive. And not “GLEE’s Puck dangerous,” either; we’re talking “Charles Manson dangerous.”American Horror Story definitely seems dark, gritty and twisted much like Nip/Tuck. I think the show is going to awesome and Connie Britton is a brilliant actress and after watching her on several seasons of Friday Night Lights I think that she will be a perfect fit for the role of Vivien. What do you guys think??
