Your next TV obsession is here.
Entertainment Weekly revealed the first official images of Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon as rivals—and co-stars—Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, respectively in Feud.
Premiering March 5 on FX, Ryan Murphy’s new anthology series “chronicles the intense rivalry between Davis and Crawford that began during their heydays in the ’30s and ’40s.”

The two stars had a long and bitter history in Hollywood. “She slept with every male costar at MGM except Lassie,” Davis reportedly once said of Crawford.
Then the two screen icons co-starred in the 1962 horror camp classic Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? which went onto become a surprise hit and earned Davis an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Crawford publicly campaigned against her.

Lange and Sarandon aren’t the only stars reliving Hollywood’s golden era. Catherine Zeta-Jones joins them playing Olivia de Havilland. Alfred Molina, Judy Davis, Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson will also co-star.
Maybe if Sarandon is too busy to play Bette Davis next time Murphy could hire Alaska?
Clear your calendars and space on your DVR for March 5 when Feud debuts on FX.
