Adding to his full plate.

Ryan Murphy is busy helming three TV shows right now – "Glee," "The New Normal," "American Horror Story" – but that's not stopping him from taking on another project. Murphy will reportedly direct an adaptation of Larry Kramer's play "The Normal Heart" for HBO.

"The Normal Heart" is set in the early 1980s during the rise of the AIDS crisis. It will star Julia Roberts (The Queen, "Mirror, Mirror"), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk, "The Avengers") Jim Parsons (Sheldon, "The Big Bang Theory") and Matt Bomer (Cooper, "Glee," "Neal, "White Collar").
