The Cast of Ryan Murphy's Ratched Is as Stacked as a Season of American Horror Story

Amanda Prahl

The cast of Ratched, Ryan Murphy's latest project, is shaping up to be exactly the kind of cast you'd expect from a Murphy-Netflix collaboration. Sarah Paulson, who starred on several seasons of American Horror Story, leads the way as Nurse Ratched herself as we learn the backstory of the iconic villain from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. But Paulson is far from the only big name joining the cast, which is packed with veterans of Murphy's other shows, as well as some TV and film icons ready to tackle new roles. Ahead, meet all the major players who will be on your screens when Ratched arrives on Netflix on Sept. 18!
