Oh, San Diego Comic-Con, when you deliver, man, do you deliver. FX presented their official American Horror Story: Freak Show panel on Saturday, revealing the entire new cast for the horror anthology series’ fourth installment.
In Jessica Lange’s last season, she plays Elsa Mars.
Kathy Bates and Evan Peters are Ethel and Jimmy Darling.
Angela Bassett will be Desiree Dupree.
Sarah Paulson portrays the already freaky sounding dual role as conjoined twins, Bette and Dot Tattler. This should be weird.
Michael Chiklis is Dell Toledo. Sounds very sophisticated.
Emma Roberts was so lame last season, that no last name was given; she’s just, “Maggie”.
Making his first appearance, and as a villain, is former cross-dressing, Drew Carey Show cast member, the humble, John Carroll Lynch. EW quoted AHS executive producer, Tim Minear on this year’s main villain, stating he will “scare the shit out of you,”. Bring it on. He also said the theme of Freak Show was likened to “Douglas Sirk meets Zodiac.”
Of course, American Horror Story: Freak Show returns to FX this October.
