#SDCC14: American Horror Story: Freak Show's Scary New Villain and More Character Details

27 July 2014 12:45 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Overall "American Horror Story: Coven" was a bit lacking, but with word coming out of the show's Sdcc panel that its successor, "Freak Show," will be home to a new villain who rivals Season 1's Rubber Man, "Asylum's" Bloody Face, and "Coven's" Minotaur, color us curious.

We don't know the big bad's name yet, but John Carroll Lynch (pictured; Shutter Island, Fargo, "Carnivale") is playing him, and exec producer Tim Minear promises "he will scare the shit out of you.”

Minear says "Freak Show" is "not like the first three seasons," dubbing it "Douglas Sirk meets Zodiac." Coincidentally (or not, you never know with "Ahs") Lynch appeared in David Fincher's Zodiac.

Several of the other cast members' full character names were revealed during the Saturday evening event: Emma Roberts is Maggie; Sarah Paulson is Siamese twins Bette and Dot Tattler; Michael Chiklis is Wendell del Toredo; Angela Bassett is Wendell's wife, »

The Fantastic Four Skips out on Comic-Con But Offers a Glimpse at The Thing

26 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

  Apparently Fox decided not to bring any marketing for The Fantastic Four to Comic-Con this weekend, even though the Josh Trank-directed picture is currently shooting in Louisiana and will debut before next year's convention.  However, a very unofficial image has leaked out into the interwebs that shows what is apparently the film's new version of The Thing.  Jamie Bell is playing the rocky humanoid hero, aka Ben Grimm, and thankfully it looks like he'll be doing so through motion capture.  It looks pretty good, but the bar was previously set laughably low by poor Michael Chiklis' rock suit in the last effort.  Hit the jump to check it out. Also starring Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch, Kate Mara as Invisible Girl, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, and Toby Kebbell as Dr. Doom, The Fantastic Four is set to open June 19, 2015.   Here's a look at the (top half, »

Is This Our First Look At The Thing From Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four?

26 July 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox has aroused our curiosity at its Comic-Con panel last night by opting not to include anything for Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which finds Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell stepping into the key roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing (respectively). However, we may get a few scoops out of the tentpole yet.

A new image (above) has hit the web, depicting what looks to be the the reference CGI bust of the Thing being used on Trank’s film. A mysterious Twitter account called @justifiedfilms, which has since been deleted, tweeted out the pic, which of course has been immortalized on the web. For those who don’t know, a reference bust is essentially a placeholder marker intended for the computer animators, who use it to then »

Finn Wittrock Joins American Horror Story: Freak Show

24 July 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As with most Ryan Murphy shows, viewers usually either love or hate American Horror Story. And with its campy, creepy, envelope-pushing storylines and characters, I’d definitely in the first camp of thought about it. This fall, Ahs is coming back for a fourth season, promisingly titled American Horror Story: Freak Show, and I can’t wait to see what the batty showrunner has up his sleeve. One especially exciting aspect of the fourth series is its cast – in addition to many series regulars, Freak Show has been announced to include new blood like Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley and now Finn Wittrock.

The casting of the All My Children alum, who worked with Murphy on the acclaimed HBO movie The Normal Heart and also had an arc on the Showtime series Masters of Sex, was revealed by Murphy via Twitter:

Thrilled to announce the very talented Finn Wittrock has joined the cast of Freak Show! »
