Kyle Buchanan offers Tina Fey five tips on becoming a movie star. Now that her Emmy-winning comedy series "30 Rock" is gone, he says the movies need her "more than she needs the movies," but she has not been provided with good projects yet. The recent release of "This Is Where I Leave You" along with "Muppets Most Wanted" and "Admission" have not been worthy. His suggestions include that she write her own projects, rewrite other projects, appeal to her base (young women and gay men), work with better directors, and finally make that movie with Meryl Streep she has been promising. Vulture -Break- Emmy-nominated actress Sarah Paulson calls her new double role as conjoined twins her "craziest" yet. She stars on the upcoming "American Horror Story: Freak Show" after previous roles as a medium, a reporter, and a witch on previous installments. Of the two twins, she says, "It's not as simple as nice and. »
Ahead of the fourth season premiere next month, FX has unveiled a batch of new American Horror Story: Freak Show images. Ryan Murphy’s anthology series returns with a new setting, hook, and cast of characters, this time focusing on the carnies of a traveling freak show in 1952 Florida. These images give us a close-up look at Kathy Bates as the Bearded Lady, Michael Chiklis as the Strong Man, and plenty more additions to the ensemble. This anthology format has been a suitable outlet for Murphy, who tends to expend all of his creative energy in a short amount of time. Even so, portions of Ahs seasons in the past have felt too crowded and overloaded at times. My hope is that the Freak Show story will be a bit more streamlined this year, but regardless, seeing a bearded Kathy Bates and a two-headed Sarah Paulson should be quite entertaining. »

In the three previous seasons of American Horror Story, Sarah Paulson has played a medium, a reporter targeted by a serial killer, and a witch blinded by acid. Clearly, Paulson loves a challenge…which brings us to this year’s Freak Show. Playing conjoined twins Bette and Dot, who are discovered by freak show manager Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange), Paulson admits it’s been her most difficult Ahs character to date. But the actress is also finding the fun in it. “Now I’m really overusing the twin emoji on my iPhone,” Paulson jokes on location in New Orleans. “Boy, »

American Horror Story has added another act to its freak show.
The Nine Lives of Chloe King star Skyler Samuels has landed a recurring role on the upcoming fourth season of the horror anthology, EW has confirmed. There aren’t many details on Samuels’ role, but The Hollywood Reporter describes her character as “a local who finds herself in a tough situation.”
American Horror Story: Freak Show, which premieres Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. on FX, follows Elsa Mars (played by Ahs alum Jessica Lange) and her group of, well, freaky circus performers and their ill-fated arrival in Jupiter, Fla, in the 1950s. »

Despite changing plots and wild twists, one of the constants of the four seasons of American Horror Story has been star Jessica Lange, who has now won two Emmys for Ahs. The actress is back for this year’s Freak Show (premiering Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. on FX) to play the maestro behind the titular group of performers, an ex-German cabaret star named Elsa Mars. Lange, who has said that this will be her last Ahs installment, talked to EW about about bringing the concept to co-creator Ryan Murphy, musical numbers, and what else is in store for this year’s epic Show. »

American Horror Story: Freak Show's posters and trailers have been the stuff of beautiful nightmares and E! News' exclusive poster is no different. Everything looks totally glamorous and normal, right? Look a little closer. Two hands on one arm. Ryan Murphy, you twisted genius. The new season of American Horror Story is set in the 1950s where Jessica Lange is Elsa Mars, a "chanteuse" (Murphy's description, no word if she's elusive) and the owner of one of the last remaining freak shows in America. The German ex-pat is joined by her second-in-command Ethel Darling, the bearded lady, played by Kathy Bates. Other "freaks" include conjoined twins Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson), »
The post-Barbara Walters version of The View made its premiere Monday on ABC, using Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" to greet the new panel: "The haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate… I shake it off, shake it off." This seems like a rather defensive posture for a show starting its 18th season. But then again. Other than new host Rosie Perez talking about how she learned kung fu "just in case I had to kick some ass," the hour didn't go too well. It was stiff, polite and airless, like one of those Taiwanese parody cartoons that "dramatize" news scandals. »

American Horror Story is well known for bringing back actors from previous seasons, but giving them new roles. In American Horror Story: Freak Show, however, we’ve got an actress reprising her role from season 2. Naomi Grossman played Pepper in American Horror Story: Asylum and now Freak Show will fill us in on what she was up to prior to being committed to Briarcliff. A while back, there was an American Horror Story call sheet leak and the document had Pepper’s name on it, so there’s been talk of Pepper’s return for a little while, but now, not only did show co-creator Ryan Murphy confirm it, but FX also unveiled a brand new still of Pepper in Freak Show. Hit the jump to check it out. American Horror Story: Freak Show begins on October 8th and also stars Sarah Paulson, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, »

Whilst the rest of the cast of 'American Horror Story' tend to enjoy a fresh start every season by acquiring a new character and fresh role to tackle it appears that actress Naomi Grossman will be the first to reprise a role from a previous season. Grossman, who played Pepper back in 'Ahs: Asylum', is back and can be spotted alongside the World's smallest woman Jyoti Amge in a new still promoting FX's 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' which is due to premiere on Wednesday 8 October. The action of 'Freak Show' takes place 12 years before 'Asylum' so its perfectly plausible that Pepper can pop up in both. The new season also stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Denis O'Hare, Emma Roberts, Finn Wittrock, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch and Patti Labelle.

Fans of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series American Horror Story might be pleased (or displeased?) to discover that the latest series Freak Show will be breaking a cardinal Ahs rule and will see one character making a reappearance, and that character will be Pepper from Asylum!
After a leaked call sheet with Naomi Grossman’s name sent Ahs fans in a frenzy back in July, creator Murphy has now revealed that she will indeed be reprising her role as the loveable maniac we watched in Asylum. But another interesting bit about Pepper’s return is the fact that Freak Show is set in 1952, and Asylum was set in 1964, so we will see Pepper’s origins! But how will she come into the story? By being a member of the travelling show led by Jessica Lange’s character Elsa Mars:

Info on FX's "American Horror Story: Freak Show" has been coming in slowly but surely, and in Entertainment Weekly’s Fall TV Preview we learn a bit more about all the characters...
...especially John Carroll Lynch's "Twisty the Clown" and a very popular one who's returning from "Asylum."
Per EW, this season’s main villain is a nasty fella (and murderer) named Twisty the Clown, portrayed by Lynch, who has retired in Jupiter, Florida, and is not thrilled by the arrival of the freak show.
“He’s out to make their lives a living hell,” explained "Ahs" exec producer Ryan Murphy. “He’s wearing a mask on the lower part of his face, and there comes a point in the season where he takes the mask off, and when you see what’s under, you will faint in terror.”
As for whom the previously announced Wes Bentley will be »
