'American Horror Story: Freak Show': 5 Things We Really Want to See in Season 4

22 April 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This past year, "American Horror Story" went from being the really, really great show that a small but dedicated (and, of course, deeply perverse) fan base watched to becoming a genuine, zeitgeist-capturing cultural phenomenon. (Fun fact: people love witches!) That means that all eyes are on the forthcoming new installment, "American Horror Story: Freak Show," which, should it stick to the show's broadcast schedule, should debut sometime before Halloween.

It's going to be a long, long few months until creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and their band of merry deviants return to reap more bloody mayhem. (Especially if you've already watched the similarly brilliant, stand-alone "True Detective.") So what to do until then? Well, wildly speculate on what we want from the upcoming season of "American Horror Story," of course.

So here are five things that we really, really, ridiculously want to see from season 4 of "American Horror Story »

It's hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead."

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' recap: It's a slapfest for Kenya and Porsha

20 April 2014 7:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Day-umn. It's only the first part of "The Real Housewives of Altanta" reunion, and we already have a physical assault to handle. Yes, Porsha gives Kenya's hair a good, hard yank, and I think there may have been some slapping before they hit the ground. Unfortunately, that part happened just outside of the lit area of the set, so it's hard to know exactly what happened. Still, whatever went down, Kenya's hair looked pretty good when it was all over, which is a minor miracle. Kenya wants Porsha fired for her actions, but I wouldn't bet on it. Everyone's been waiting to see which Housewife would smack Kenya first, and if poor Porsha hadn't yanked the scepter out of Kenya's hand, I suspect someone else would have. Actually Kenya's lucky no one decided to beat her to death with that or the megaphone.  Oh yeah, the scepter and the megaphone! »

'The Normal Heart' Trailer: Mark Ruffalo Speaks Out (Video)

19 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A big mouth isn't always a problem; sometimes, it can be the solution.

That's the theme running through the trailer for the upcoming HBO film, "The Normal Heart." Directed by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy from a play by Larry Kramer, the movie chronicles the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the '80s.

"The Normal Heart" covers a similar timeframe as the Oscar-nominated "Dallas Buyers Club," but focuses on a gay man (Mark Ruffalo) who becomes an activist. He teams up with a doctor (Julia Roberts) to raise awareness and lobby politicians to care about.

Ruffalo is all fire and passion, while Roberts is the cool, no-nonsense physician. And they're just two members of a sterling cast, which also includes Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons. We have a feeling this will rake in the awards come Emmy time.

"The Normal Heart" premieres May 25 on HBO.

Watch The Trailer For HBO Films TV Drama Feature ‘The Normal Heart’

18 April 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Last Year, HBO Films brought us the superb Behind The Candelabra, a film that was released theatrically in the UK, and one that went on to be nominated for a BAFTA. In 2014, the celebrated cable network is releasing Ryan Murphy’s TV movie The Normal Heart, which will almost certainly get a cinema bow overseas as well, and possibly grab some awards attention come next year too.

The film, written by Larry Kramer, based on his Tony award winning play of the same name, tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and the gay activist (played by Mark Ruffalo), who attempts to raise awareness of it.

Ruffalo joins Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Julia Roberts in the superb cast of this film, Murphy’s first feature since the Roberts vehicle Eat, Pray, Love.

Denis O'Hare Reveals His 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Character

18 April 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's pretty much nothing but question marks when it comes to the next season of "American Horror Story." We know that it will have the ominous subtitle "Freak Show," that it will be set in the fifties, and that much of the cast of the previous seasons (including Jessica Lange, supposedly in her last go-around) will return. But Vulture was able to get some details out of returning costar Denis O'Hare... Sort of.

He told the site that while last season he was hopelessly in love with Lange, this season their relationship will be altogether different. "I'm going to be working at cross-purposes with her," O'Hare explained. "We'll have lots of scenes with each other, but we'll be battling." The actor, who played the mute butler Spaulding on last year's smash "American Horror Story: Coven," also says that he'll be around in all 10 episodes of the next season, and where »
