One of the more well-known genre offerings among current television programs is the FX show American Horror Story. Co-created by Nip/Tuck‘s Ryan Murphy, with Firefly‘s Tim Minear as a writer, the series follows an anthology format, telling a different story each season. The show’s upcoming fourth season, titled “Freak Show”, follows the exploits of a travelling freak show in 1950s Florida. With the returning cast joined by Michael Chiklis and Wes Bentley, the series has now added Matt Bomer to its cast. Bomer has worked with Murphy before, most recently on HBO’s The Normal Heart, and has also been seen in Chuck and White Collar, as well as on the big screen in Magic Mike. A new teaser for the season has also been released, and can be seen below. The new season begins on October 8th.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has released another story from the Harry Potter universe and it focuses on the backstory of the singing sorceress sensation Celestina Warbeck.
In an article for Today.com, Rowling wrote, "Celestina Warbeck is one of my favourite 'off-stage' characters in the Harry Potter series, and has been part of the Potter world ever since its inception, making an early appearance in the short-lived 'Daily Prophet' series I produced for members of the equally short-lived fan club run by my British publisher, Bloomsbury."
You can read the full story on Pottermore.com, but here's a little taste from it:
Celestina has sometimes lent her name and talents to good causes, such as raisingfunds for St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries with a recording of Puddlemere United's anthem 'Beat Back Those Bludgers, Boys, and Chuck That Quaffle Here'. More controversially, Celestina was vocal in her »

Assaying his return to soaps, Hartley told TV Guide Magazine (which broke the news of his casting), “I don’t care if the job is on daytime or primetime or the web. Hey, give me a good character and someone to listen and I’ll do my acting on a street corner.”
Veteran television and radio announcer Dominick “Don” Pardo, best known as the voice of Saturday Night Live, has died. He was 96.
Pardo passed away Monday evening, an NBC rep confirms to TVLine.
Pardo retired from NBC in 2004, but continued to provide the introductions for SNL — most recently, pre-recording them from his home in Arizona. He had only missed one season of SNL — the show’s seventh — giving him a longer tenure than even Lorne Michaels (who stepped away for five seasons).
“I can’t imagine the show without [Don],” Michaels once said, “and as long as he’s there, I stay young. »
The freshman finale of The Blacklist left us with plenty of unanswered questions — and from the looks of it, Season 2 will pose even more.

Among the head-scratchers:

Pro wrestler-turned-actor John Cena will battle Brock Lesnar during SummerSlam 2014 in their headlining match this Sunday. But he's not the only WWE star to come from behind the ropes and onto the Hollywood stage with ease. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Stacy Keibler and more wrestling powerhouses have readily transitioned into silver and small screen stardom. Putting his ripped biceps to good use long before starring as the Greek hero Hercules, The Rock got his best-known acting start as the Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns. Meanwhile, the tallest WWE Diva to ever enter the ring—earning her the title The Legs of WWE—has appeared in Psych, Chuck »

McPartlin will recur on NBC’s upcoming comedy Bad Judge as Billy the Fireman, our sister site Deadline reports. And because men in uniform always get the girl, Billy will be a love interest for Kate Walsh’s Rebecca — though he might find himself at odds with new series regular Ryan Hansen, who’s also a love interest for Rebeeca (aka the luckiest judge ever).
But seriously, I wasn’t kidding about McPartlin’s knack for playing life savers. »

Shut the chuck up, Chris Pratt was almost Chuck?! In an interview with Hitfix, which was conducted solely to discuss the awesomeness of Pratt after Guardians of the Galaxy's box office domination, Chuck creator Josh Schwartz revealed he actually wanted Star-Lord as the NBC cult hit's leading man after working with him on The O.C.'s final season. (Oh hey, Che!) "He was the first guy I wanted to play 'Chuck'. But as fate would have it, he was destined to guard the galaxy, not the Buy More," Schwartz revealed. "And might I add, couldn't happen to a nicer guy." Of course, the role eventually went to one of Hollywood's other nicest guys, Zachary Levi, and »
That Chris Pratt is the star of one of the biggest movies of the year (two, really, even if people didn't specifically see "The Lego Movie" for him) is perhaps surprising to filmgoers who didn't know him at all (or only knew him from supporting roles in films like "Moneyball" or "Zero Dark Thirty"). But it's almost certainly not surprising to TV fans who watched him grow up from the unexpected heart of "Everwood" as sensitive jock Bright Abbott, to a scene stealer on "The O.C." as rich kid revolutionary Che, through his current role as man-child musician Andy Dwyer on "Parks and Recreation" — three roles that, together, showed off the range, charisma and impeccable comic timing that he brought to the role of Star-Lord. And it is absolutely not a shock to the people he worked for on those shows. As "Guardians of the Galaxy" prepared for its second »
