Lily Rabe to Play Charlize Theron's Monster Role on AHS

Lily Rabe rocks a floral dress as she strikes a pose at The Public Theater’s opening night of her new play Cymbeline held at the Delacorte Theater on (August 10) in New York City.

The 33-year-old actress was joined by her co-star and real-life boyfriend Hamish Linklater, who starred together as Beatrice and Benedick in The Public Theater’s staging of Much Ado About Nothing last summer.

Ryan Murphy has revealed that Lily‘s role in the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Hotel will be the same real-life woman that Charlize Theron played in the movie Monster.

“Our Halloween episode this year is called ‘Devil’s Night,’” Ryan said. “I’m directing it. Lily Rabe is coming to that episode, and she’s playing Aileen Wuornos, which is really bizarre. She’s at the centerpiece of that Halloween episode, and that’s who she’s playing.”

Aileen killed seven men from 1989 to 1990 and Charlize went on to win an Oscar for playing the role.

    sorry but she doesn’t play Charlize Theron’s role…that is a really stupid headline.

    Why not just say she’s playing Aileen Wuornos? WTF. I know this isn’t the NY Times, but give your readers a little credit.

    I hope this season of AHS will be better than the last one.
