Say what you will about John Travolta’s career, but you can’t deny that it’s been interesting. And the actor’s latest cinematic curiosity is no exception, though you may need a moment to really process every insane element in the following statement: Travolta is playing a psychotic stalker obsessed with an action movie hero played by Devon Sawa in a new thriller titled Moose, from director Fred Durst.

FX bosses have made clear that American Crime Story would plumb a broader criminal focus than The People v. O.J. Simpson, noting early on that Hurricane Katrina would form Season 2's main story.

The People v. O.J. Simpson will conclude the first American Crime Story run on Tuesday, hailed as one of TV’s best, where early days drew mostly snickers for John Travolta’s hilarious wig. Now, we may have all-new hairpieces to snicker at next year, as Travolta has expressed an intent to return for the second, Hurricane Katrina-based American Crime Story.
