According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Murphy had met with HBO programming chief, Michael Lombardo, to pitch his idea for a movie about the making of "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" with Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon. Lombardo, unfortunately, wasn’t interested and moved on to “The Normal Heart.”

I think a movie on the making of "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" is a great idea. Davis and Crawford’s bitter feud, on set and off, is legendary. That Lange and Sarandon were originally pitched to star makes this project sound even better! (But who was going to play whom?)  We need to convince Lombardo to reconsider.  A movie about two Classic Hollywood legends, played by two modern-day legends, duking it out on the set of a camp horror classic is something we definitely would watch, and could have the potential to be both a big media event and a ratings blockbuster.

"American Horror Story: Freak Show." Love it. I’m envisioning something a lot like Tod Browning’s “Freaks,” featuring Lange as Dietrich as Freakshow Ringmaster.

Somebody should write a good, comprehensive bio on Jessica Lange. The only one in existence (that I’m aware of) has been out of print for ages (and was sorely lacking IMHO).

AHS: Coven Season Finale - A Minor Quibble

SPOILER ALERT!!! Don’t read if you haven’t watched the season finale.

Madison was a powerful witch, demontrating at least five of the seven wonders: Transmutation, Concilium, Pyrokinesis, Telekinesis, Descensum. Yet somehow she was powerless to stop FrankenKyle from strangling her ??? She could’ve easily transmutated out of his grip. Or controlled his mind to make him stop. Or set him on fire. Anything. WTF?
