Taissa Farmiga

Sofia Coppola continues to align herself with burgeoning talent, and just a day after she nabbed Emma Watson for her next film "The Bling Ring" she's picked up a fresh face to join the cast.

"American Horror Story" star Taissa Farmiga (sister of Vera, whose directorial debut "Higher Ground" also featured the younger Farmiga) has come aboard the film. "The Bling Ring" will be based on the true story of The Burglar Bunch aka Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch aka The Bling Ring, a group of affluent teenagers who pulled off some brazen heists of celebrity homes, including those of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson, Megan Fox and Orlando Bloom, taking up to $3 million worth of goods. No word yet on the exact roles for either Watson or Farmiga.

But before she gets to the Coppola film, Farmiga will appear in the indie flick "James Boy." Written and directed by Tim White, the story will follow a street gang member who ends up in prison, being mentored by a convicted murdered. Farmiga will play the young man's love interest.

And for those of you hoping Farmiga will be back for more 'Horror Story'? Not gonna happen. The show is pretty much re-casting and re-locating for season two. But it looks like the actress doesn't have worry about having work. [Variety]
