    awesome! Gabourey is fantastic (and she’s really personable & hilarious in interviews!). i’m really excited for this season.

    This is great news! I love Ms. Sidibe and its always awesome to see a newcomer cross over into the horror world. I doubt she’s a witch, but that would be interesting. Cant wait for this season. 3rd times a “charm” lol I just had to do it, sorry..

        I just don’t care for her. I admittedly have only seen her in a couple of movies though. ‘Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire’ just wasn’t for me and ‘Tower Heist’ was a mess. Maybe she’s in something else I could check out?

  • ThunderDragoon

    YES! So happy. I love her!

    Gabourey Sidibe is a good addition in my book. She was fantastic in Precious, and I really enjoyed her in Tower Heist:

    Ben Stiller: “Alright. I think we need to address the elephant in the room.”

    Sidibe: “What the hell did you just call me!!!”

    Easily the funniest part in that movie for my money, because I can’t stand Ben Stiller, which made the movie more unbearable at times for me, because he was the main character.

    Anyway, I just can’t wait for season 3 of American Horror Story season 3! Dying for my fix! lol.

    I really enjoyed ‘Precious’ and I really like Gabourey; she was raw and believable in that role. Maybe I’ll check this season out…
