‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ will be less campy than ‘Coven’
Will American Horror Story: Freak Show be ultra-dark like the second edition of the hit anthology series, Asylum? Or will it be lighter and more campy like the third go-round,Coven?
FX CEO John Landgraf was asked about the tone of this fall’s Freak Show at theTelevision Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Monday, and he said the scripts fall “in between” the last two editions.
“Some years it’s going to be big and bright and brash and campy the way Coven is. Other years it’s going to be dark and brooding—like Asylum was. I guess I would put Freak Show half-way in between the two… but its got a brooding period feel to it also,” he said…
Freak Show, set to debut in October, is set in Florida in the 1950s, and starsSarah Paulson, Jessica Lange and Evan Peters. Landgraf added the installment is “going to have a really different look from a design and cinematography standpoint than any of the previous incarnations…”Wes Bentley Of ‘Hunger Games’ Is Joining ‘American Horror Story’ Season 4
Season 3 of Ryan Murphy‘s “AHS” anthology was rich with female characters, but for the upcoming fourth season, a couple of men have been added to the cast. Along with the previously announced addition ofMichael Chiklis, Wes Bentley will also appear on the show. You likely know him best as the neighbor with the video camera in “American Beauty,” but you’ll also recognize him as Seneca Crane from “The Hunger Games.”
According to TV Line, Bentley will appear in the series’ two-part Halloween episode (two part!) as Eddie, a revenge-hungry tormentor from Kathy Bates’past.
Not much more is known about the cast of characters other than the news that Sarah Paulson will have two heads and Chiklis will play a strong man married to Angela Bassett and also the ex of Kathy Bates. “AHS” staples Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare and Frances Conroy will also return.
Set in 1952 in Jupiter, Florida at the last American freak show run by Lange’s German ex-pat, Season 4 is definitely going to have a lot more freaky surprises.
