Pilot News: AHS' Taissa Farmiga Recruited for ABC Drama L.A. Crime

Taissa Farmiga LA Crime

American Horror Story survivor Taissa Farmiga will be getting her hands dirty this pilot season, copping a major role in ABC’s L.A. Crime, TVLine has confirmed.

Farmiga will play Karen, a wannabe Rolling Stone reporter who is toiling for a paparazzi outfit when she has a brush with a pair of at-large killers.

Described as a character-driven, true-crime procedural that explores sex, politics and popular culture across various noteworthy eras in Los Angeles history, L.A. Crime‘s potential first season focuses on two cops in search of a Bonnie & Clyde-esque serial killing team amidst the rock-and-roll, coke-infused revelry of the 1980s Sunset Strip.

Farmiga joins previously announced cast member Erika Christiansen, who will play Betty, one half of Crime‘s aforementioned serial-killing duo.

    This is the opposite of a coup. Such a bad actress.

  2. Matt C. says:

    So I guess she won’t be keeping with the tradition of starring in AHS’s odd-numbered seasons.

  3. Joey says:

    Good, keep her far away from AHS.

    • Ben says:

      Taissa is excellent. Hope she is in season 5.

      • Joey says:

        She is a trashcan of an actress. Her sister is fantastic. Please learn to tell the difference.

        • Audrey says:

          Get out of here with your rude comments, she’s not a trashcan and nobody cares about your opinion. They’re both nice actresses and Taissa is still very Young and Vera is twice her age so it’s unfair that you even compare them.

        • Michael says:

          you are the freaking trashcan here. She was excellent in s1 of AHS as Violet its not her fault she got the shaft in S3 as Zoey you can find bad roles in every actress or actors career look at the razzies you damn idiot

    This sounds like it could be good, but I wonder how far the ABC sensors will allow the writers to go given the setting and subject matter.

  5. I love Taissa, and I think this pilot sounds like it could be good. I hope it goes to series.

  6. I have seen all of Taissa movies and shows. She a very good actress.
    She been in ten films not counting AHS and she only 20 years old.
    I like crime shows I bet this is going to be a good one,
