John Carroll Lynch to Play Villain in ‘Ahs: Freak Show’

26 July 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

John Carroll Lynch is headed to the “Freak Show.”

The “Fargo” alum will play a core villain on season four of “American Horror Story,” exec producer Tim Minear revealed on Saturday night during the show’s Comic-Con debut.

Minear teased that the baddie will rival season one’s Rubber Man, “Asylum’s” Bloody Face and even “Coven’s” Minotaur. He will “scare the s**t out of you,” alright.

Meanwhile, the rest of the cast divulged their character names: Sarah Paulson is Siamese twins Bette and Dot Tattler, Emma Roberts is Maggie, Kathy Bates is Effil Darling, Angela Bassett is Desiere Duprée, Evan Peters is Jimmy Darling, star Jessica Langeis is Elsa Mars, and “Ahs” newbie Michael Chiklis is Wendell Del Toredo.

The new season — set in 1950s Jupiter, Florida — premieres this fall on FX.

Enough, already: Why I'm quitting 'The Leftovers'

1 hour ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

That’s it. I quit. No more.

For weeks, I’ve stuck it out with The Leftovers, which many critics (including me) have described as one of the bleakest, most brutal, most depressing dramas on television. But it wasn’t until Sunday’s episode, “Gladys,” that I decided I’d had enough. I refuse to watch another minute of this show.

It wasn’t just that a woman (the Gladys of the title, played by Marceline Hugot) got stoned to death in the episode. I’ve seen worse on my all-time favorite show, Breaking Bad. What I objected to wasn’t the violence. »

The Leftovers Recap: Can We Talk?

1 hour ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Since this week’s episode of The Leftovers was titled “Gladys,” and since nothing even remotely pleasant ever happens on this show (at least not unless Garvey and Nora happen to cross paths), you can probably guess that it doesn’t go well for the title character.

But what you probably can’t guess is that, over the course of the hour, not one but two members of the Guilty Remnant break their vow of silence, and what transpires on screen takes away our ability to utter anything but gasps. (It’s that horrific.) Scared? You should be. But let’s recap this sucker, »

Rising Star Recap: Exception to the Duels

1 hour ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Quick, say something nice about Rising Star! And no, “it’s no longer clogging up my DVR with its tuneless discharge” does not count as “nice.”

Maybe I ought to go first? Ummm…

Ok, ABC’s reality singing competition is putting my math skills to good use. (That hinky “percentage of people who vote yes” + “7% for each judge” metric does occasionally tickle the brain.)

Things got quite… animated… when the team behind Fox’s Bob’s Burgers dropped by TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con suite.

When Michael Ausiello placed an order for Season 5 scoop, funny lady Kristin Schaal offered an appetizer in the form of two characters “fighting over a chinchilla.” (Yeah, that was promptly sent back to the kitchen.)

True Blood Recap: The Waiting Game

2 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Waiting sucks” took on a whole new meaning during Sunday’s True Blood, as Sookie was forced to sweat out the results of her Hep-v blood test. Is she responsible for inadvertently sentencing Bill to death?

Sadly, the answer is yes; after the midnight assault on Fangtasia, when those H-Vamps exploded all over Sookie, she contracted the Hep-v virus and passed it along to Bill during their feedings. Even though it was obvious her test results would come back positive, it was heartbreaking watching Sookie wait for the news, »

Watch: ‘Vikings’ Season 3 Trailer Shows More Violence

3 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If the first trailer for season three of History’s “Vikings,” released at Comic-Con, is any indication, fans can look forward to plenty more blood and brutal battles to keep them intrigued.

At the end of season two of the Norse drama, Ragnar Lothbrok, played by Travis Fimmel, had taken Horik’s spot as King of the Danes. One of his next stops now is Paris, which he’ll raid and where he’ll go up against King Charles.

Adding to the eerie tone of the trailer is the voiceover of John Kavanagh, who plays the blind seer.

Along with Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick is returning as Lagertha. Clive Standen, Alexander Ludwig and Gustaf Skarsgard also star. Michael Hirst created the historical drama.

Though an exact air date has yet to be confirmed, the series is eying an early 2015 return.
