Here it is, the first official cast pic from American Horror Story'slatest installment "Freak Show." And it does not disappoint. This may be the strangest use of this star-studded cast yet. Angela Bassett has three breasts, Kathy Bates a beard, and Sarah Paulson has two heads. Looks like AHS is primed and ready to out-do itself on television insanity.
Set in 1952 Jupiter, Florida, the show is centered around America's last "freak show." Also, some sort of "dark entity" has landed in the town where the show takes place, because of course it did. The show stars Paulson, Bassett, Bates, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Denis O'Hare, Wes Bentley, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Patti LaBelle, and (of course) the main character, scene stealer and only real reason to tune in every week, Jessica Lange. Note, it appears as if Lange has no arms in this picture? Possible? Who knows? Only time will tell what sort of hot topic issues AHS will attempt to cover with the subtlety and soft touch of a cement block being flung off a rooftop. Can't wait.
