Chloe Sevigny

From her Oscar-nominated role in Boys Don't Cry to her recent guest shot on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Chloë Sevigny is no stranger to sexually charged material — and that's not about to change. She'll soon be seen as a transgendered hit man/woman in the British miniseries Hit & Miss (debuting on DirecTV July 11), and she'll follow that up with a recurring gig as a nymphomaniac on Season 2 of FX's explicit American Horror Story.

"It's a great show — what am I going to say, I'm not going to do it because it's another sexually provocative thing?" the Big Love alum tells TV Guide Magazine exclusively. "I can't turn down good work because of that."

And she'll be in good company: Among the staffers at a 1960's East Coast mental hospital treating (or mistreating, as the case may be) her character is Golden Globe winner Jessica Lange, who previously worked with Sevigny on the Jim Jarmusch film Broken Flowers. As for the role of her doctor, "I hear they're looking at a couple of big names," says Sevigny. "They were talking about Ian McShane. I shouldn't say this, but I'm kinda hoping they get him because I'm a big fan."
