Another huge story broke late last night that’s keeping me from enjoying the beautiful weather outside (I do it for you!).
Saturday night hosted the San Diego Comic-Con panel for FX’s “American Horror Story” where they revealed the entire cast for the fourth season of FX’s anthology series. Here’s who’s joining the “Freak Show”, courtesy of EW:
Kathy Bates and Evan Peters will be playing Ethel and Jimmy Darling. Joining them will be Angela Bassett’s Desiree Dupree, Michael Chiklis as Dell Toledo, Sarah Paulson in the dual role of conjoined twins Bette and Dot Tattler, and Emma Roberts as Maggie (no last name as of yet). Finally, series staple Jessica Lange will be playing a character is named Elsa Mars. Chiklis is playing Bates’ husband…and Bassett’s ex-husband.
They also add that one of this year’s core villains will be played by John Carroll Lynch, pictured below, the great everyguy-psychopath character actor. One of Lynch’s best-known performances came as the possible serial killer Arthur Leigh Allen in Zodiac; executive producer Tim Minear described the tone of “Freak Show” as “Douglas Sirk meets Zodiac.” Minear also said he will rivaled season one’s Rubber Man, Asylum’s Bloody Face and Coven’s Minotaur, calling the character one that will “scare the shit out of you,” THR added.
Watch for the show’s return this fall.
