Sarah Paulson has joined the jaw-dropping cast of Ryan Murphy's new anthology drama Feud.

On Tuesday, the showrunner shared that the American Crime Story and American Horror Story alum will play the legendary screen and stage star Geraldine Page.

Page was an eight-time Oscar nominee and one-time winner for her starring role in The Trip to Bountiful. As of now, it's unclear how Page will connect to the main storyline of Feud, which is focused on Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis' (Susan Sarandon) tumultuous relationship while filming the1962 classic What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? But the Best Actress Oscar race in 1963 did pit Davis (Jane) against Page (Sweet Bird of Youth).

The eight-episode first season of Feud also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland, Alfred Molina as director Robert Aldrich, Stanley Tucci as studio exec Jack Warner, Judy Davis and as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper and Dominic Burgess as Crawford and Davis' co-star Victor Buono.
