BOYCOTT FOX BROADCASTING COMPANY IF…..
I just wanted to give the public a heads up that the casting information I have posted regarding “American Horror Stories” comes from the following verified sources, and that I am not affiliated with Fox in any way. I post casting information as a way for actors to have some reference as to what is being cast. It is hard enough for actors to get work let alone free casting information.
This information regarding John Landgraf’s statements have been confirmed.
Here is the official Sande Alessi casting website stating that they are currently casting AMERICAN HORROR STORY Season 2 and they are seeking exactly what I have posted:
Nowcasting.com is currently listing Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer Casting as CURRENTLY casting the show:
• Log in to your Nowcasting.com account
• Click on “CD Connection”
• Then just click on “Search” without entering any options.
• You then get a complete list of all of the productions that are casting.
• “American Horror Story” is listed as currently casting by Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer Casting.
To all my friends and followers, please take a good look at this information, and let me know if there is anything innacurate. I DO NOT ever post any misleading information for my benefit, only auditions and casting information that I can verify to the best of my ability for the benefit of actors seeking work. I received an email from someone claiming to be “Kasimira C. Verdi, Director – Intellectual Property Fox Group Legal”. I have no idea if this email came from anyone associated with Fox, however if it was from someone associated with Fox, why do they not know about the verified information I have provided. Here is an exact quote from the email that I received from Kasimira C. Verdi… “in point of fact, AMERICAN HORROR STORY is not casting.” This is an absolute and verified contradiction to what has been stated by top representatives of FOX NETWORK. I personally would suggest a BOYCOTT of ALL Fox programming if indeed someone associated contacted me and gave me unverified information regarding “American Horror Story” and have made threats about taking legal action against me for “false advertising, false designation of origin, and unfair competition under the Lanham Act, and entitles Fox to your profits, Fox’s damages, a trebling of those damages and reimbursement of its attorney’s fees”.
Please write Fox executives if you feel this is unjust and unfair threats against my freedom speech and employment listings of opportunities for actors.

If indeed there is inaccurate information regarding auditions and casting for “American Horror Story” that I have posted, I will promptly remove that information and post any new accurate information that I can verify. Remember – FREEDOM OF SPEECH, and FREEDOM OF CHANGING THE CHANNEL are two of our great freedoms left in the U.S.A. Spread the word, I may have a million visitors to my websites each month, but it takes everyone to band together to make real change and action from the Big Studios. They don’t really give a crap about the little guy, only stock holder money. Hit them where it hurts and CHANGE THE CHANNEL!
There will be NO casting information posted for any Fox or FX shows if they do not resolve their issue with me. Again, someone claiming to be Kasimira C. Verdi (Director – Intellectual Property Fox Group Legal) emailed me and lied to me by stating that “In point of fact, AMERICAN HORROR STORY is not casting”. As part of the network’s TCA Press Tour presentation, President and General Manager of FX Networks, John Landgraf, stated at the TCA Press Tour presentation that “Ryan Murphy is already looking for that cast. He’s already in active conversations with new people (for American Horror Story season 2). When a rep for the studio (Kasimira C. Verdi) lies to me about the show not currently casting, they are also lying to the public as I am a writer, journalist, and blogger. I will always inform the public as to what is told to me by the studios. Note: I have provided links that prove both the principal actor casting director and extras casting directors are listed as currently casting…
Bookmark the links I have provided on the casting information post and take screenshots so that you too have proof that what I posted is true and not misleading. What is misleading is a studio rep making a false statement that American Horror Story is not currently casting in a blatant bullying attempt to silence me, and making it harder for struggling actors to find good, accurate, legitimate FREE casting information.
