Sarah Paulson to Play Geraldine Page in FX Series Feud
Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon will lead the cast of Golden Age Hollywood divas.
Sarah Paulson joins Ryan Murphy's starry cast for his new FX series Feud, in which she will take on the role of Oscar-winning film legend Geraldine Page.
The series, following the legendary backstage battle between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, has already announced that Tony winner Jessica Lange (Long Day's Journey Into Night) and Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (Exit the King) will lead the ensemble as Crawford and Davis, respectively. Tony winner Catherine Zeta-Jones has also signed on to play Olivia de Havilland.
Murphy made the announcement of Paulson's casting earlier today via Twitter.

The project adds to Murphy and Paulson's list of collaborations, which includes The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and American Horror Story. Paulson has received Emmy nominations for her roles in both. On Broadway, Paulson starred in the 2005 revival of The Glass Menagerie as well as the 2010 production of Donald Margulies' Collected Stories. She also starred opposite Danny Burstein in Roundabout Theatre Company's 2013 off-Broadway revival of Talley's Folly.
