The opening credits for the previous 2 seasons of of FX's American Horror Story were fun. A sufficiently creepy collage of both still and moving images, with an eerie musical overlay and sound effects. Via Twitter earlier today, show co-creator Ryan Murphy shared what will be the opening credits for the series' upcoming third season, adding that the sequence includes clues to how the new season's narrative will progress. See if you can spot them.Although names noticeably absent from the opening credit sequence are Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe. I expected to, at least, see Bassett's name, given that she's one of the leads this season. I suppose she'll likely receive something like a "special guest star" credit.Expectations are even higher for American Horror Story: Coven, which will explore "themes of race and oppression and family — especially mothers and daughters — along with laughs and scares and a few tears," as executive producer Tim Minear puts it.Here's a breakdown if you missed it previously:

The rumor that began circulating last week (courtesy of our friends at Latino Review), was that David Oyelowo and Michael B. Jordan had both met with director JJ Abrams regarding roles in the upcoming Star Wars franchise reboot.But maybe these meetings were for something else entirely - at least in Oyelowo's case - as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Oyelowo is "in the process of being cast" as one of a handful of voice leads for, not Star Wars: Episode VII, but for Star Wars: Rebels, the CGI animated series that will air on Disney XD, in the fall of 2014.No word on what character Oyelowo's voice is in consideration for, but I should note that, this news doesn't necessarily mean that he isn't being considered for a role in Episode VII, the film, as well.Oyelowo would join Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray and Steven Jay Blum, all giving voice to characters in the animated series.The THR report doesn't state anything about Michael B. Jordan, however.At least 3 more Star Wars movies, plus individual movies based on characters from the Star Wars universe, plus individual TV series also based on characters from the Star Wars universe, are expected over the next 6 to 7 years.
