22 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

American Horror Story: Freak Show opened in Philadelphia at the American Morbidity Museum where Dr. Mansfield (Denis O’Hare) is attempted to sell a fake Baby Sasquatch alongside his partner in crime Ms. Rothschild (Emma Roberts). The proprietor, though calling Mansfield out on his fake specimen and fake degrees from Harvard, suggests that should he find something authentic, the Morbidity Museum would pay handsomely for it, and directs him and Rothschild to a freak show.

'Ahs: Freak Show' Recap

At one of the last two freak shows in the country in Jupiter, Fla., Jimmy “Lobster Boy” Darling (Evan Peters) is mourning Meep’s death.

22 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The FX series American Horror Story: Freak Show follows a troupe of the strange and unusual in 1952, who are looking to survive as performers amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.  Also in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida is a dark being known as Twisty the Clown (John Carroll Lynch), who savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike, but who also has an innocence that makes it even more disturbing.  The show stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts, Denis O’Hare and Finn Wittrock. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor John Carroll Lynch talked about how this role was pitched to him, being aware of the deep fear of clowns that many people have, how he creeps out some of the cast and crew when he’s in character, the evolution of Twisty’s look, »

On This Season of American Horror Story, Sarah Paulson Faces Her Fears Twice

22 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In three seasons on FX’s American Horror Story, Sarah Paulson has had to telepathically commune with the dead, breast-feed an adult sociopathic killer, and have sex while surrounded by dozens of snakes, to pick just a few discomfiting scenes from a series that has become a hit thanks its gothic blend of the camp and the demonic. Yet it was filming a seemingly mundane sequence for the first episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, as the new season is titled, that caused Paulson to melt down, worried she might not be up to the task of playing Bette and Dot, conjoined twins who are recruited to help revive an embattled freak show in 1950s Florida. The trouble? While eating a roll of bread (as Bette), Paulson had to simultaneously write in her diary (as Dot), a disorienting feat of mind-body multitasking. “They have two heads and two brains »

Top Ten Most Important Things About This Photo of The Zeéeeee That Everyone Is Talking About Today

21 October 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's a special top ten day. List mania all day long...

10 Renée has reemerged again but there's still no firm word on future movies other than The Whole Truth with Keanu Reeves, directed by Courtney Hunt (Frozen River) which is due next year supposedly

09 Sarah Paulson looks Ahmazing

08 Long rectangular table at these events are terrible because you only get to talk to a couple of people except when everyone is milling about. 

07 If you squint really hard you can pretend Sarah & Renée are non-identical siamese sisters they're so squinched together...

06 Bet you anything they talked about American Horror Story - weird that Ryan Murphy hasn't asked the Zeéeeee to do it? (Although his tastes do run a little more 1980s/1990s than 1990s/2000s as actresses go.)

05 Everyone in this photo has major trophies except for Sarah Paulson and that ain't right!

04 Everyone looks like they color coordinated. Did »

‘American Horror Story: Freakshow – Episode 1′ Review

21 October 2014 4:59 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Michael Chiklis, Denis O’Hare, Even Peters, Emma Roberts, Minn Wittrock, John Carroll Lunch, Patti Labelle | Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk

For the last couple of years, American Horror Story has been one of the most frequently recommended TV shows from my friends, and like most TV trends I blissfully ignored it so I can sink yet more time into Civilisation V and nuking Ghandi because, well, it’s Ghandi. Eventually though it got enough of my attention through the power of the internet and I decided to give this season a try.

Two hours later and I’ve watched the first two still unreleased episodes of season 4 (I love reviewing things, I really do) and you better believe I’m watching the rest. Episode two’s review will follow, but I honestly couldn’t wait to write about episode one. »

Sarah Paulson Explains Why Two Heads Are Better Than One

21 October 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange talk to Et about the new season of 'American Horror Story.'

Sarah Paulson has been an American Horror Story regular for all four seasons. However, no season has required the amount of effort as Freak Show.

In FX's newest installment in the horror franchise, Paulson plays conjoined twin sideshow performers Bette and Dot Tattler. As you can imagine, it's not an easy shoot for Paulson.

"It's the hardest thing I've ever done," Paulson told Et's Kevin Frazier on the red carpet outside Elle's Women In Hollywood celebration, where her Ahs co-star Jessica Lange was being honored for her work.

"It's the most exhausting thing I've ever done. And for all the other actors, it's one of the hardest things they've ever had to do. Because when I'm shooting, I've got one head, and they have to imagine where the other head is going to be."

Best of Late Night TV: Ice Cube Talks N.W.A. Movie, Alan Cumming Recalls Shia's 'Cabaret' Arrest (Video)

21 October 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman and Seth Meyers all had repeats on Monday, October 20, so the pickings were a bit slim.

Ice Cube was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," talking about how he just wrapped principal photography on the N.W.A. movie, "Straight Outta Compton." He was constantly getting arrested when he was with N.W.A. Jimmy asked about the cast, which is mostly filled with unknowns. Ice Cube's son is in it, though, playing Ice Cube himself; did he have to audition to play his dad? "Hell yeah!" They also discussed how it was Snoop Dogg's birthday, and Ice Cube got him the same thing he got him last year. »

Sarah Paulson Looks Back at Her Early Career in a Hallmark TV Movie

17 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the fourth incarnation of “American Horror Story” now underway — this time out she’ll be playing Siamese twins — Sarah Paulson (who co-starred in last year’s Oscar winner, “12 Years a Slave”) channeled her 19-year-old self to recall one of her very first roles, in Hallmark TV movie “Friends at Last,” opposite Kathleen Turner. “Getting to work with her was mind-blowing to me,” Paulson says.

What did you learn from working with Kathleen Turner?

Kathleen is incredibly focused and dedicated, and she’s not a complainer. She has rheumatoid arthritis, but I never heard her complain. She was never late for work. She was never short with anyone because of the pain she must have been in. It was a very early lesson for me to be aware of people around you, to keep whatever’s going on with you privately private, and show up and do your work.

Ahs: Freakshow "Massacres & Matinees"

16 October 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The freaks come out at night. The freaks come out at night. Well, except when there's a curfew in which case they'll do matinees. In Freakshow's second episode, the police have locked down the town at night. Apparently there's no CSI people around to explain to them that that murderous clown, played by the Zodiac killer John Carroll Lynch, has mostly been killing in broad daylight. Much scarier time for murders, I think we can all agree. Meanwhile more freaks arrive at Elsa's tent seeking employment (Hi, Angela and Angela's boobs... and I do mean plural), Bette and Dot's rivalry increases  - they share the same body but not the same brain or talents, and Dandy and his mother Gloria meet Twisty the Clown to upsetting results. Neither of them are remotely scared of him which makes the scenes a strange mix of genuinely terrifying and hilarious.

Sarah Paulson Takes the American Horror Story: Freak Show Stage With "Criminal" by Fiona Apple

16 October 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is this American Horror Story: Freak Show or Glee?  We're not complaining! Sarah Paulson took the Freak Show stage with a cover of Fiona Apple's "Criminal" as conjoined twins Bette and Dot Tattler. Before you start griping, we know "Criminal" was released in 1996 and American Horror Story: Freak Show is set in 1952. Last week Jessica Lange sang "Life on Mars?" by David Bowie. The Emmy winner will also take on a Lana Del Ray song in an upcoming episode. "I really wanted to do an homage to my friend and idol Baz Luhrmann," Ryan Murphy told E! News at the Freak Show premiere, "who does such amazing things with music and period. We didn't want to »

Watch Conjoined Twins Sing Fiona Apple's 'Criminal' on 'American Horror Story'

Two weeks in and American Horror Story: Freak Show is making it real tough for viewers. On one hand, it's difficult to stomach all the gory murders, killer clowns and visual oddities that the show spotlights every week, but on the other hand, it's even harder to miss out on the anachronistic musical performances Freak Show doles out each episode. The first episode of Freak Show, which takes place in Jupiter, Florida in 1952, made clever use of David Bowie's Hunky Dory cut "Life on Mars?" On Wednesday night, the »

American Horror Story Freak Show episode 2 review: Massacres And Matinees

16 October 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sarah Paulson truly shines in Freak Show, a series that has a great deal else to recommend it, too...

This review contains spoilers.

4.2 Massacres And Matinees

Sarah Paulson is phenomenal. She's been a bit of a workman over the years, putting in solid performances in thankless roles like that of Cordelia Foxx in Coven, but this season she's really showing off what she can do by taking on a very difficult bit of work: playing two roles at once. Bette and Dot are similar enough in look, but completely different in personality, and not only does Paulson have to act out both of them, she has to make it look convincing when playing against herself. Plus, she's got a very good singing voice.

Paulson's expressions and visual tics are really well thought-out. Bette and Dot are two different people who share the same body, and they may be twins, but »

American Horror Story Adds a Few More 'Freaks' to the Show (Recap)

15 October 2014 8:05 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If anyone can take on a powerhouse like Jessica Lange, it would have to be someone with the physical prowess of Michael Chiklis. As a "Strongman," Chiklis made his American Horror Story: Freak Show debut Wednesday night and lived up to his title in more ways than one. Wendell "Dell" Toledo (Chiklis) arrives at the camp of the titular Freak Show along with his wife, Desiree Dupree (Angela Bassett), a hermaphrodite with three boobs. With credentials like that, Dell thinks they should be shoo-ins as the new headliners but Elsa Mars (Lange) is strapped for cash and hesitant to hire "The World's Strongest Man. »
