20 Famous Witches We’d Like to See on ‘American Horror Story: Coven’

Someone recently described American Horror Story: Coven as “fantasy football for gay men,” and I can’t think of a more appropriate log line. Ryan Murphy has outdone himself when it comes to getting as many fierce ladies into one room as possible. As far as I’m concerned, cramming Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Patti LuPone, and Christine Ebersole into a single hour of television last week has absolved all of Ryan Murphy’s crimes against humanity. But I still think he could go even farther. Here’s my dream team of witches I wish would show up in the season’s remaining ten episodes.

Surely Ryan Murphy can coax Stritchy out of her retirement in Michigan for one last role. I’m betting the promise of murdering a lot of young actors would be quite a draw for her. (Plus, she wouldn’t have to wear pants.) And you know she’s pissed that Christine Ebersole beat her to a bit part.
