The Bridge - Season 2 - Casting News - Franka Potente gets arc

The Bridge is getting a little dose of Horror when American Horror Story: Asylum veteran Franka Potente joins the cast for a multi-episode arc. The German actress will play Eleanor on the FX drama on the second season, which is now in production.

Based on the Swedish/Danish co-production of the same name, FX's The Bridge stars Demián Bichir and Diane Kruger as detectives investigating a serial killer striking on both sides of the Mexico/America border.

Potente's The Bridge character, Eleanor Schrock, is described as "shunned Mennonite" who has a no-nonsense attitude. She still dresses sensibly, but there's a whole lot of sinister underneath her façade. She's ruthless and will stop at nothing.
