Denis O'Hare Will Play a Freak Collector in American Horror Story: Freak Show

18 April 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Plot details are still being kept under wraps, but we know that the next season of "American Horror Story" will have a carnival theme and that several recurring cast members will return. One of those actors is "True Blood's" Denis O'Hare, who just spilled some beans about his character.

In an interview with Vulture, O'Hare confirmed that he will be appearing in all ten episodes of "American Horror Story: Freak Show" and doing battle with Jessica Lange's character. "I’m going to be working at cross-purposes with her. We’re going to be like this," he told the site, crossing his fingers.

Without giving too much away, O'Hare hinted that his character will be "a collector of freaks," rather than a freak himself.

The other cast members announced thus far include Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Jamie Brewer, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy. »

Denis O'Hare Reveals Who 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 »

'American Horror Story' Season 4 cast weighs in on 'Freak Show' theme

31 March 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Zap2it caught up with some of the cast of "American Horror Story" Season 4, subtitled "Freak Show," at 2014 Paleyfest last Friday (March 28), where we asked them a few fun questions about the theme of the upcoming season.

Zap2it: Do you have any scary memories of a carnival or circus?

Angela Bassett: "When the lions always came out. ... They got just a little rambunctious."

Denis O'Hare: "I like circuses, I like the dark part of life, so what I have are lots of memories of being at night at a carnival where there was danger in the air. The carnie people were all kind of sexy and creepy, and they all had tattoos and the rides were all kind of rickety and scary and the food was forbidden. I love the whole forbidden part of that."

Evan Peters: "I haven't been to too many circuses, but I can't wait to check [the season] out. »

12 things we learned about 'American Horror Story' at PaleyFest

29 March 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Blame it on the witches. "American Horror Story: Coven" cast a spell on viewers, and nowhere was this more evident than at PaleyFest. While the show has always been a reliable hit at the event, this year the fan reaction seemed, well, more ardent than usual. Young fans asked the cast for hugs. One asked for a job. Evan Peters got a hand-knotted panda bear cap, while Sarah Paulson got letters, a T-shirt, and was asked on a date by one young female admirer. There was screaming. A lot of screaming. As one woman sitting behind me grumbled, "This isn't a One Direction concert." Despite the similarities, the audience still managed to learn a lot -- even (gasp) details about the top-secret coming season, "Freak Show." Here are twelve factoids worth mentioning. 1) Ryan Murphy was told that "American Horror Story: Coven" would be the lowest rated season of the series »

Everything We Know About American Horror Story Season 4 So Far

29 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

We've been dying to know any and all American Horror Story season four details, and now we have tons of big ones, including the title. After finding out recently that next season will be set at a carnival, Ryan Murphy also gave us the title of American Horror Story: Freak Show. When the carnival theme was revealed, show writer Douglas Petrie said, "Very roughly, that's the idea." American Horror Story has already tackled ghosts, aliens, Nazi surgeons, and most recently, twisted witches and jazz-loving serial killers. It'll be interesting to see the show's bizarre take on carnival culture. So what else do we know about season four of the anthology show? Murphy has been slowly letting more details loose, most recently at the American Horror Story: Coven panel at PaleyFest. Here's everything else we've found out about season four of American Horror Story. Read on to find out who will be returning! »

First Details, Actors Announced for 'American Horror Story: Freak Show'

29 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

At Friday night's PaleyFest, Ryan Murphy and the cast of last season's American Horror Story: Coven chatted about the recently-wrapped season. But you watched Coven; you want to know about Freak Show, the next season of FX's anthology series.

The biggest news was that a new actor was joining the fold. Michael Chiklis (The Shield, Fantastic Four) will be the male lead of Freak Show. We have heard hints and snippets about what season four will hold, but now we have a (slightly) more definitive idea. Jessica Lange stars as a German ex-pat who manages one of the last remaining freak shows in Jupiter, Florida in 1950. I have to imagine that this season will, at least partly, be inspired by Gibsonton, Florida, a popular destination for circus performers during the off season. Chiklis will play the ex-husband of Kathy Bates' character, and father to Evan Peters' character - »

Exciting news from the "American Horror Story: Freak Show" panel at Paleyfest 2014. "The Shield" Emmy winner Michael Chiklis is joining the cast for the fourth season of the show.

Creator Ryan Murphy says, "[Michael Chiklis] is playing Evan [Peter's] father and he will be Kathy Bates' ex-husband," which is exciting indeed. Murphy does not specify if Bates is Peters' mother, however.

Chiklis says of his reaction when Murphy pitched the piece to him, "I'm terrified and I'm going to do it."

Murphy also confirms that every person on the panel is coming back in some capacity, which means in addition to the previously-announced Jessica Lange, Angela Basset, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy and Sarah Paulson, Season 4 will also feature Denis O'Hare, Gabourey Sidibe, Emma Roberts, Jamie Brewer and Chiklis. Murphy further says that there will be a few faces from Seasons 1 and 2 appearing in Season 4, but he does not reveal who they might be. »

Rake in the UK: Greg Kinnear talks anti-heroes, steak and black eyes

6 March 2014 5:20 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Greg Kinnear plays anti-hero Keegan Deane in the new Us legal drama series Rake.

Keegan is a brilliant but self-destructive criminal defence lawyer who has a penchant for especially difficult clients. He relies on his wit and charm to get through obstacles in his life, but constantly makes everything more complicated for himself by indulging in his favourite pastimes - gambling, drinking and prostitutes.

During a recent press day for the show in Los Angeles, we caught up with actor Greg Kinnear to find out more…

Rake is a re-imagining of a popular Australian show. How did you get involved with the project?

My agent sent me the script for Rake and said, "The creator [of the original Australian show] is in town and he'd like to meet with you." I watched a couple of episodes [of the Australian show] and I immediately felt like they had cooked up a very interesting recipe that was really a great mixed »

'Dallas Buyers Club' - reflects reality (Ians Movie Review)

1 March 2014 12:08 AM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: "Dallas Buyers Club"; Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto, Denis O'Hare, Steve Zahn, Michael O'Neill, Dallas Roberts, Griffin Dunne, Kevin Rankin, Donna Duplantier and Deneen Tyler; Director: Jean-Marc Vallee; Rating: ***1/2

Unlike Director Dylan Mohan Gray's hard-hitting documentary, "Fire in the Blood", which was released in the Indian theaters last October, "Dallas Buyers Club" is a fascinating dramatization of the same subject.

It depicts how the medical profession, government and pharmaceutical giants in the Us dragged their heels in promoting the expensive Azt and ignoring its toxic. »
