Ryan Murphy’s Feud: Bette and Joan Looks Absolutely Ridiculous; Just Try and Keep Us Away

Oh my gods. If you thought American Horror Story was the most campy, ridiculous, farcical thing Ryan Murphy could do, it may be time to reset your expectations, because Feud:  Bette and Joan

looks

deliciously

absurd.

While Joan Crawford and Bette Davis’ rivalry may have begun over affections for the same man (Franchot Tone), it was reportedly their professional careers that apparently inspired the most jealousy. Culminating in a contentious relationship exploited during filming of 1962’s Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (and for a short time, on the set of Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte, which Crawford abruptly quit), the actresses’ bitter, competitive natures will again be explored onscreen, this time through Murphy’s comedic veil, and as interpreted by Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon. And after seeing these teasers, wild horses couldn’t keep us away.

Will you just look at those cars!

Feud also stars Sarah Paulson as Geraldine Page; Catherine Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland; Kathy Bates as Joan Blondell; Judy Davis as Hedda Hopper; Alfred Molina as Robert Aldrich; Stanley Tucci as Jack L. Warner; Dominic Burgess as Victor Buono; Alison Wright as Pauline Jameson (Kiernan Shipka will guest star); it premieres on FX March 5th.

    Sarandon’s casting is PITCH. PERFECT. I’m kinda over Murphy, but, good gravy, does he ever know how to pick tantalizing subject matter. This had better be good, though. If it’s not I really think I’ll quit Murphy once and for all.
