Casting

Casting announcements began in March 2011, with Connie Britton first to be cast, portraying female lead Vivien Harmon. Britton stated that she took a risk in taking the role of Vivien. When Murphy presented the role to her he said "This is something we've never seen you do before. It will be turning what you've just been doing on its ear." She was intrigued by what he had presented her and ultimately decided to take the part. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series co-creator Ryan Murphy stated that he had told Connie Britton, early on, that her character Vivien would die in the first season. "We’ve really had the whole season mapped out from the beginning," he said. "In the meetings with the core actors, the three leads being Connie, Dylan [McDermott] and Jessica [Lange], as we tried to snare them we were able to say this is where you start, this is the middle, and this is where you end up. So, yes, I was able to tell Connie really the whole run of the series."  American Horror Story Season 1

Denis O’Hare joined the cast in late March 2011 as Larry Harvey. Jessica Lange joined the cast in April 2011 as Constance, marking her first regular role on television. Lange was attracted to the role because it didn't require a 22-episode commitment like a series on a broadcast network. "That was huge for me!" she said. "I wasn’t about to commit to, you know, six months. It was cable, rather than network. …I’ve been offered network [shows] before, and determined not to do it, just because I can’t make that kind of time commitment."  American Horror Story Season 1

Dylan McDermott was cast as the lead Ben Harmon in late April 2011. His character was initially described as "a handsome and masculine but sensitive therapist who loves his family but has hurt his wife." McDermott stated that he wanted to do the role to break away from his previous role as Bobby Donnell in the ABC series The Practice. "This was exactly why I wanted to do this show—to change it up and do a different kind of character. People think of me as the guy from ‘The Practice’ …I wanted to turn that [notion] on its head and hopefully I’m doing that [with this show]", he said. American Horror Story Season 1

In May 2011, Taissa Farmiga and Evan Peters were the last actors to be cast, portraying Violet Harmon and Tate Langdon, respectively. Farmiga said that she loved Violet "immediately" and that "She had spunk to her, she had attitude." Murphy has described Tate as the "true monster" of the series, adding: "To Evan’s great credit and the credit of the writers, I think Evan’s done an amazingly difficult job making a monster sympathetic."
