Ryan Murphy's Feud Season 2 Reportedly Just Cast A Major '80s Icon

“The Breakfast Club” star Molly Ringwald is the latest addition to the “Feud” Season 2 cast, according to a report from Variety. Murphy has been known to work with the same actors multiple times, and Ringwald is coming off of a role in his Netflix miniseries, “Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.” In that series, she portrayed Shari Dahmer, stepmother to the real-life serial killer. Other acting credits for Ringwald include ’80s classics like “Pretty in Pink” and “Sixteen Candles,” along with more modern appearances in shows like The CW’s “Riverdale” and Hulu’s “The Bear.”

Carson will likely be a significant role in “Feud,” as much has been written about the close relationship between Carson and Capote. Capote was even staying with her when he passed in 1984 and he wrote his last story for her the day before he died, she said in 2006 to the Los Angeles Times

“All the critics said that he couldn’t write and that it was all over and that he had destroyed his talent,” Carson told the LA Times. “And that’s why this last manuscript of his is so important.”

Ringwald is in good hands behind the camera. On top of Ryan’s involvement, “Milk” director Gus Van Sant is directing all eight episodes of “Feud” Season 2, and Jon Robin Baitz, a Tony and Pulitzer nominee, is penning the scripts, per Variety
