Adam Levine might be single again in real life, but he’s ready to play one half of a couple known as “the Lovers” on FX’s creep-tastic hit drama “American Horror Story.”
The Maroon 5 frontman and “The Voice” judge has confirmed the part to E! News. “It is the truth,” Levine told Ryan Seacrest about the previously rumored role . “I mean, it’s pretty much happening. I think it’s happening. I don’t know how much I can divulge, because [series co-creator] Ryan [Murphy] is very under wraps.
“It’s going to be fun. And I told [Ryan] I really didn’t know what I was doing, but he didn’t seem to really care,” Levine continued. “So I’m just going to go and try to [do] acting. I think I’m going to be kind of playing myself, so hopefully it will be easy.”
Season two is set to premiere in October with returning season one favorites Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lily Rabe. E! further reports that the new season might take place on the East Coast at a mental institution. Season one took place in Los Angeles with a troubled family moving into a new home, lovingly referred to as “Murder House” on the series because so many people were murdered in it.
About Murphy, Levine said, “He’s really great. And I love the fact that he believes in me to throw me out there.”
Given how often the guys appear shirtless on “American Horror Story” — and how famous Levine’s abs are — fans should probably expect Murphy to make the most of that aspect of his persona. The identity of the other “Lover” is top secret for now.
