Here’s the Full Cast Reveal For “American Horror Story: Freak Show” #SDCC


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.

    Isn’t Chiklis Bates’ ex and Bassett’s current?

  • Lucca Cantisano

    Pretty sad Lily Rabe isn’t coming back, though, she sure delivered a helluva performance in the last 2 seasons.

    • J Jett

      Lucca, i agree. i’m pretty bummed Rabe (at least as of this point) isn’t a part of this season. hopefully she’ll come on board to some extent.

    • Sarah A

      She’s been in every season and is consistently a great actress. I really loved her in Asylum.

      • Lucca Cantisano

        Although Asylum was the season I liked the least, she totally blew me away in that.

        • Sarah A

          Yeah, I feel like the writing and characters in Asylum had potential but they did too much- aliens, demons, nazis, a serial killer, zombies, etc on top of being set in an insane asylum? Plus the last episodes seem rushed.

    • Nick Greeley

      She is by far the best part of AHS. This is a shame.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    Why didn’t they reveal which “freak” they’d be playing. We already know Sarah Paulson’s, but I’m dying to find out all the rest. Arghhhh

  • ThunderDragoon

    I hope they get to keep Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett for future seasons because knowing that this is Jessica Lange’s last season, we’ll need to keep some great talent.

      This appears to be taking a lot of cues from HBO’s Carnivale. I hope it isn’t a lame imitation of that AMAZING series.
