This first anthology of their season is brought to us by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, based on the book ‘The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson‘ by Jeffrey Toobin.

David Schwimmer's new TV role sure is raising a lot of eyebrows. The Friends alum just booked his big return to TV, and it's to play...Robert Kardashian?! Nope, not the famous reality star/brother to Kim Kardashian, but rather her late father, who was O.J. Simpson's confidant and attorney, in Ryan Murphy's new FX miniseries surrounding the now-infamous trial. Schwimmer will recur in the first season of the true-crime anthology series American Crime Story opposite the previously announced Cuba Gooding Jr. (who will play Simpson) and Sarah Paulson (who will play prosecutor Marcia Clark). Sounds like Schwimmer is trading in "Pivot!" for "Acquit!" (Sorry, that »

David Schwimmer‘s newest friend: Oj Simpson.
American Crime Story, from American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy, got a straight-to-series order in October — with a 10-episode first season focusing on the murder trial of NFL star Simpson, who was accused and ultimately acquitted of killing his wife Nicole Brown Simpson.
"American Horror Story: Freak Show" is taking a little holiday hiatus, but FX has offered us a little Christmas treat to tide us over until January 7. This teaser introduces Neil Patrick Harris as Chester, a puppet-loving performer who takes over Elsa's freak show. It looks like Dot and Bette (Sarah Paulson) will finally get a chance at love, or at least lust, thanks to Chester, which opens up a few cans of worms.
First, Dandy (Finn Wittrock) finds out about their new paramour and is super upset, which is cool because it's been at least a week since Dandy's had a huge tantrum. Second, where the heck is Elsa off to? How in the world is this Hollywood plan coming to fruition? Third, it looks like Chester's sidekick isn't just some wooden dummy; we get a little glimpse of "Ahs" alum Jamie Brewer made up just like Chester's puppet, and »

Neil Patrick Harris is bringing his magic to FX's American Horror Story: Freak Show. The Oscar host and former How I Met Your Mother star has a two-episode arc as Chester, the new owner of Elsa's (Jessica Lange) titular freak show. And while Harris' character is certainly bringing a bag of tricks to the series, Chester also seems to have taken an interest in Bette and/or Dot (Sarah Paulson).

Warning: You might never look at Neil Patrick Harris the same way again.
FX’s bloody-good promo for American Horror Story‘s winter premiere (Jan. 7, 10/9c) offers our first look at Nph’s character, Chester, the new owner of Elsa’s Freak Show — though he appears to have a special interest in Bette and/or Dot. (“We may be just off the farm, but we can tell when a man is flirting with us.” Oh, boy.)
And because this is Ahs, it only takes about 30 seconds before we see Chester completely covered in blood.
The promo also previews what the »
As promised, Neil Patrick Harris will be on American Horror Story: Freak Show this season, as a spooky magician with an even spookier dummy. Ahs comes back January 7, at which point Nph will seduce Sarah Paulson's Dot and Bette and engage in what appears to be a sawing-in-half act gone wrong. Quite the companion piece to Harris's work in Gone Girl. »

In October, “Ahs” creator Ryan Murphy announced that the 2015 Oscar host would guest star on the show. The teaser with Harris’ character, who appears when the show returns in January, aired after Wednesday’s mid-season finale, and shows Harris getting pretty creepy.
It was previously revealed that Harris will play a salesman in the last two episodes of the season, but he seems to be some sort of magician in the trailer. He’s shown charming Sarah Paulson’s two-headed Bette and Dot, and performs a particularly bloody magic trick onstage.

This episode turns American Horror Story into American Murder Mystery Story, but in a brilliant way.
After noticing the disappearance of Ma Petite, the freaks search for her in the surrounding woods. They find a box with the dress that she was wearing tattered. Jimmy and a guilt stricken Dell (who we know from the last episode killed her) were the ones to tell Elsa, who immediately became grief stricken. However, Ethel is not convinced and drunkenly confronts Elsa with a gun, and the two close friends let all their darkness unfold.
Elsewhere, Desiree rounds up Penny, Amazon Eve, and Legless Suzi in order to take revenge upon the oppressive men in their lives, starting with Penny’s dad. »

At this rate, Elsa won’t have to share the spotlight for much longer.
In this week’s American Horror Story: Freak Show, not only did another performer take their final bow, but Pepper was delivered to Asylum’s Sister Mary Eunice at Briarcliff Manor.

Another One Bites The Dust | By the time “Orphans” began, Salty had already died in his sleep (ironically, of natural causes). Elsa claimed to want a proper burial for Pepper’s soul mate, but Stanley insisted that, with the network eager to meet her, she needed to stress less and rest more. »
Cuba Gooding Jr.and Sarah Paulson previously booked the lead roles of O.J. Simpson and prosecutor Marcia Clark in prolific award-winning producer Ryan Murphy's follow-up to his hit "American Horror Story" franchise, to be titled "American Crime Story" - a companion anthology focused each season on a different true crime story, which made headlines. Roger Friedman at Showbiz 411 is now reporting that producers want David Schwimmer to play Robert Kardashian, although he has yet to commit; and if he doesn't, Tim Roth is apparently waiting anxiously in line to take the job. But even more interesting is that Ryan Murphy reportedly wants Samuel L. »

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. From the twisted minds of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, 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 interview with press to discuss his work on the popular series, actor Denis O’Hare (who plays a con artist named Stanley) talked about whether they can actually push the envelope of disturbing even further than they already have, the show’s portrayal of the gay community, coming up with his own backstory, what he’d like to see the show explore next, what his American Horror Story characters have in common and how they’re most different, and what scares people today. »

It's Pepper's time to shine. Prepare to see Naomi Grossman's American Horror Story character in a whole new light on the next Freak Show on Wednesday, Dec. 17. Grossman, whose breakout role as Pepper in the second season of Ahs, American Horror Story: Asylum, endeared her to viewers, turns in a heartbreaking performance that will leave viewers grabbing for the tissues. We first met Pepper in the premiere episode of Asylum when she asked Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson) to play with her in the Briarcliff yard and that's where we say goodbye. The character returned as part of Fraulein Elsa's Cabinet of Curiosities in the fourth season, but Grossman didn't know she'd get to fully explore the »
Wednesday’s American Horror Story: Freak Show midseason finale (FX, 10/9c) bids farewell to another member of the troupe, before saying hello to a familiar face from Season 2 — but the show’s dual-headed divas have far more pressing matters at hand.
With Jimmy behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, Sarah Paulson‘s Dot is beside herself — like, more than she is on a normal day — and she’ll do anything to see him walk free.
“She loves him with too much purity, and he’s too pure a soul to her, to imagine anything horrible befalling him, »
