WILL SARAH PAULSON RETURN FOR ‘AMERICAN CRIME STORY’ SEASON 2?

After her uncanny portrayal of Marcia Clark in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, Sarah Paulson could be returning to the series for a second bite at the apple.

American Crime Story Season 2 will tackle the horrors of Hurricane Katrina. Paulson, who is interested in returning to the series, told Awardsline about the disaster, “The Katrina story, to me, is a literal American crime. It says something about a uniquely American attitude, and I find it incredibly potent.”

The Ryan Murphy anthology series, also produced by Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson, will tackle the storm, before and after, and America’s response to the tragedy and what the country’s culpability was in what transpired, as issues of race, class and governmental competence intersect.

Other cast members from American Crime Story Season 1, may come on board the project, including John Travolta who has reportedly expressed interest. Travolta, who played Simpson’s ‘dream team’ lawyer, Robert Shapiro, took part in rescue efforts post-Katrina, and could conceivably play himself in the project based on his experiences in the aftermath of the flooding.
