You gotta love that Television Critics Association. When various shows weren't being announced for renewals, we also found out some more casting for Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan's upcoming series, Scream Queens.
Joining both Emma Roberts (American Horror Story) and Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween) in yet undisclosed roles are Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Keke Palmer (True Jackson), Joe Manganiello (True Blood) and Lea Michele (Glee). The four of them will make up the regular cast along with both Roberts and Curtis, though I'm sure more will be confirmed when the pilot episode begins filming.
Also joining the cast of the horror comedy series will be popstar Ariana Grande, whose previous acting credits include Victorious (never saw it). Grande will appear some of the fifteen episodes from the show's first season, so chances are she probably will meet a grisly demise early on as she's only on recurring status. The show will focus on a killing spree at a college campus for it's first season. Like American Horror Story, the theme and settings will be different for subsequent seasons.
And it seems we have another recurring cast member too. Nick Jonas will be recurring in an undisclosed role in the first season of Scream Queens. Jonas, currently also starring in martial arts drama, Kingdom was announced recently, which means that there will be at least one other prominent male on the show aside from Manganiello. Though how many episodes he'll appear in remains to be seen.
