The cast of the second season of American Horror Story is coming together slowly, but surely...
In addition to a handful of actors returning to the FX show from season one, word through the TV grapevine says that Joseph Fiennes -- whom you may recall from his most recent small screen role as Mark Benford on Flash Forward -- is in talks for the Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk-created show.
The anthology series takes place in the sixties -- more specifically, in an East Coast institution for the criminally insane. Fiennes would play the head of the institution, where Jessica Lange's character works (incidentally, her character is a love interest for Fiennes').
Musician-turned-reality show judge Adam Levine is also new to the series, portraying a character known only as one half of a couple known as The Lovers.
American Horror Story's sophomore season is scheduled to premiere this Fall.

Adam Levine is set to make his TV acting debut in American Horror Story.
The Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach is in final negotiations to appear in season two of the TV thriller - about a family who move into a haunted house - where he will play a contemporary character, who is one half of a couple called The Lovers, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Bosses at FX channel which makes the show are so keen to sign Adam up that they are willing to shoot around the Maroon 5 singer's summer touring schedule.
Despite the huge success of season one of the American Horror Story, creator Ryan Murphy has decided to change the location of the show to the East Coast from Los Angeles and move the setting to a "horror institution" from a family home.
Original cast members Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Lily Rabe will be returning as entirely different characters although no other details of the program's sophomore season have been revealed.
Speaking at this year's PaleyFest, American Horror Story co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk threw fans a bone when they confirmed several more returning actors for the show's upcoming second season.
With fan favorites Jessica Lange and Zachary Quinto already slated to come back, who else made AHS viewers even more excited for the sophomore season?

Russell Brand has signed up to front a new topical late night TV series.
The stand-up comic-and-actor has agreed a deal with cable network FX to present the series on which Russell will give his "unvarnished, unfiltered take on current events, politics and pop culture."
"We're very excited to add Russell Brand's bracingly funny, original, and honest voice to the FX comedy line-up. We look forward to supporting Russell and his partner Troy Miller's ambition to strip down the hosted comedy format to its most fundamental elements and to create something daring and unfiltered for the FX audience," said Nick Grad -- FX executive vice-president of original programming -- in a statement.
The 36-year-old star claims he is "excited" to the "point of climax" about the project, which will hit screens next spring. Making a joke about Fox News political commentator Bill O'Reilly, Russell exclaimed, "I am so excited I'm on the point of climax. In fact, I will put the 'O' into FX, which spells Fox, which is actually the channel's real name. That's the only thing that worries me about all this, to be honest. At least I'll be able to have a Christmas drink with Bill O'Reilly."
The Harmon twins haven't even been born yet, and they're already quite the popular pair!
In this sneak peek of this week's American Horror Story, titled "Birth," dead couples Tate/Violet (Evan Peters/Taissa Farmiga) and Chad/Patrick (Zachary Quinto/Teddy Sears) verbally go at each other over who is going to take care of the babies.
Is making Zachary Quinto a regular cast member too much to ask for?
American Horror Story airs on FX at 10 p.m. EST/P.
