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.

This review contains spoilers.
On a show full of great characters and stunning transformations, none of them is as impressive as the hours of makeup it must take to change Naomi Grossman into Pepper the pinhead. Ms Grossman is a very cute, appealing girl, and when you look at her next to Pepper—even with a shaved head—it's tough to reconcile that these two are in fact the same person. It's stunning work, but perhaps more stunning than Grossman's transformation is her staggering acting ability. She doesn't speak much in either season she's featured, but Pepper is an indelible presence who steals focus in every scene she's in, and it's all thanks to the actress behind the makeup.
No more is that on display than in Orphans. This is the »
Right after Lily Rabe showed up on American Horror Story, we got our next look at another Freak Show guest star: Neil Patrick Harris! The actor was announced as a guest star a couple months ago, and now we have footage from the Jan. 7 episode (he'll also star in the following episode). In the promo, Harris plays a magician whose specialty is cutting people in half, and he takes a liking to Bette and Dot. Could he be sawing them apart?! Also of note: he's wearing a top hat, something that Ryan Murphy has said was a clue about season five. Keep an eye out for Ahs alum Jamie Brewer, too! »
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. »

From True Detective and Fargo to American Horror Story, everybody is getting into the anthology game, and this March, ABC debuts its contribution to the TV trend, American Crime, which is not to be confused with Ryan Murphy's O.J.

This week on American Horror Story, we finally got to see exactly how Freak Show connects to Asylum. It's been a couple months since Ryan Murphy first revealed that all of American Horror Story's seasons are connected. Now that we have our first glimpse of Sister Mary Eunice in Freak Show, we're more curious than ever to see how the seasons begin tying into each other. We've of course spent time theorizing about season five, but now it's time to look back. Keep reading to see how the first four seasons could be connected. »
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. »

Ever since we found out that each installment of American Horror Story somehow intersects, our brains have been running wild with season connection theories. At the same time, though, it's important to figure out how season five will layer in. Ryan Murphy recently revealed one of the first clues you can find in Freak Show, which means it's officially time to start theorizing. We're rounding up popular horror themes that Murphy hasn't tackled, hints he dropped that never came to fruition, and personal wishes into a set of theories that could be used next year. Keep reading as we get the ball rolling. 1. American Horror Story: Myth Where it would be set: Somewhere deep in the woods. A good way to go might be a mountain town, just at the edge of a forest. There'd obviously be a cabin-in-the-woods aspect. What it would be about: Urban legends and myths »

Originally touted as a standalone anthology series, all of the gruesome stories in Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story are now connected - and Naomi Grossman's Pepper is the character to tie it all together.
