Sarah Paulson Joins Ryan Murphy's FX Drama Feud as Geraldine Page

Ryan Murphy is taking a page from his successful playbook, casting frequent collaborator Sarah Paulson in his new FX anthology drama Feud.

Murphy announced on Twitter Tuesday morning that Paulson — currently an Emmy frontrunner for her role as Marcia Clark in Murphy’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson — will channel legendary actress Geraldine Page in the eight-episode series.

PBDGEPA EC002Season 1 of Feud will chronicle Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis’ (Susan Sarandon) combative collaboration on the big-screen classic What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, which went on to garner five Oscar nominations.

The cast also includes Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci, Judy Davis and Dominic Burgess.

Each season of Feud will explore a different real-life rivalry.

As we reported earlier this month, Paulson is currently shooting a top-secret role in the top secret sixth season of American Horror Story. (It’s all very top secret!)

    I want to see Paulson in a remake of Interiors someday.

  2. Nate says:

    So will this be Page at the 1962 Oscars, Page in the later Aldrich psycho-biddy thriller What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice, or both?

  3. Cas says:

    She was fantastic in OJ. And this cast seems great!

    Obviously the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 feud between Coco Montrese and Alyssa Edwards is going to be the subject of next season, because only Joan vs. Betty is legally allowed by international law to go before Coco vs Alyssa. But then again, maybe it won’t happen, as there are currently no living actresses with high enough starpower to depict that legendary LSFYL.

    I thought Feud was about the two H’wd gossip columnists Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons.
