Well its official. American Horror Story Asylum and Freak Show are linked. Lily Rabe is coming back to the show for a special guest spot in the series upcoming 10th episode. Not only does that continue her streak as one of the few actors that have appeared in every season so far but she becomes the second actor to have one of her past characters cross over into another season the first being Naomi Grossmans character Pepper. What does this mean for the series Well if Rabes Sister Mary Eunice is coming to take Pepper to Briarcliff it means that by the 10th episode the series will have moved forward ten years as the catholic church didnt buy Briarcliff and turn it into an asylum until 1962. »
This is coming at a good time. Clowns are in the news. Clowns are on the small screen (American Horror Story: Freak Show). And...it's friggin' Halloween! Today, we have a look at the Italian one-sheet and trailer. This international promo features a bunch of new footage.
Clown began as a fake trailer directed by Jon Watts. The trailer garnered Eli Roth's attention. He loved it and came on board to shepherd the feature film as a producer. Watts directed the feature and Robot and Frank scribe Christopher D. Ford provided the script.

Jon Cryer on “Two and a Half Men” gay marriage controversy: "Hopefully we haven't done something too terrible in taste” "For us it was just a fun, silly idea that some people were taking kind of seriously, so that sort of surprised us,” says Cryer of the plan for Alan to marry Ashton Kutcher’s character. "But at the same time I understand. This is a time when our nation is changing so much. And let's remember, same-sex adoption is still illegal in some states so I can see why people would be nervous about it. And as long as the fight is still being fought they have a right to be sensitive about it.” Plus: Jon Cryer recalls when Charlie Sheen began going crazy on “Men,” Sheen says "I just think it makes sense” for him to return to “Men,” Cryer recalls being labeled “The Show Killer,” and Conchata Ferrell recalls auditioning for Berta. »

You may be obsessed with American Horror Story: Freak Show, but chances are, you're not as obsessed as one dedicated fan. Instagram user iamdizzco has been posting original art that combines Freak Show characters like Jimmy Darling and Twisty the Clown with Disney characters. I genuinely can't tell if this is cool or disturbing - it could be both. In any case, it's totally worth scrolling through to see Elsa from Frozen as Elsa Mars. It's a match made in heaven! . . . Or hell? »

We've learned quite a bit over the course of the two Halloween episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show. The mythical Edward Mordrake (guest star Wes Bentley) appears to recruit a member of the freak show for his own (dead) troupe, and a handful of characters campaign to join him by sharing their lowest moments via flashbacks. Horrible news: they're even lower than you might have imagined. Among the highlights, we find out how Elsa lost her legs and how Twisty became so, well, twisted. It really doesn't even matter if you watch the show; these are just some very interesting characters. Here's what we've learned so far! »
Last night, FX served up the new promo/spoiler clip (below) for their upcoming "American Horror Story" episode 5 of season 4, and it appears to be heavy dramatic and interesting as the Freaks get offered poison cupcakes, more extreme violence and screaming goes down, and more! The episode is titled, "Pink Cupcakes." In the new, 5th episode plotline: Stanley and Maggie will cook up a plan to murder the Freaks. Gloria will hide the evidence of Dandy's horrible new hobby. A health scare will end up, revealing Desiree may not be the oddity she once thought. The episode was written by Jessica Sharzer, and it was directed by Michael Uppendahl. Episode 5 is scheduled to air on Wednesday night, November 5th at 9pm central time on FX. Stay tuned. »
American Horror Story: Freak Show, Episode 4, “Edward Mordrake (Part Two)”
Written by Jennifer Salt
Directed by Howard Deutch
Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on FX
American Horror Story: Freak Show has been making campy nods towards a variety of horror cliches throughout the season’s first three episodes, and “Edward Mordrake (Part Two)” points towards a new subset of the genre—torture porn. Even the most gruesome moments of the previous episodes carry a comic, winking touch to them that keeps them light (without allowing for a few chills). However, in “(Part Two),” the humor is replaced by a noticeably sadistic streak that’s neither as fun nor as scary as the previous tone.
The contrast is starkest in the Twisty and Dandy scenes. Whereas the Twisty segments in the first three episodes focus primarily on his hunts for victims, his scenes this week are exclusively about his torture of victims. »

Jon Stewart confirms he was approached to host "Meet the Press," but he didn't take NBC's offer seriously "My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could,” Stewart tells Rolling Stone. "I'm sure part of them was thinking, 'Why don't we just make it a variety show?’” Stewart also says that he thinks Stephen Colbert might be even better when he takes over from Letterman. "Untethered from his character, I think he'll actually have more room and really be able to deliver in a way that's going to surprise people,” says Stewart. E! extends Joel McHale’s “The Soup” deal through 2016 McHale will continue hosting the weekly comedy show, while also coming up reality projects for the network.

Edward Mordrake may have two episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show named after him, but all he really does is pump the episodes, and especially “Edward Mordrake (Part 2),” full of exposition. It’s a noticeably heavy-handed manner of delivering backstory and a bit of a waste of what could have been a creepy, threatening character, but it works well enough because most of that backstory is necessary, highly engaging and also gives some supporting characters the screen time they deserve. Hit the jump to find out who were Edward Mordrake’s hits and misses in my American Horror Story: Freak Show recap. “Edward Mordrake (Part 2)” starts off strong. I said it in my recap of “Monsters Among Us” and I’ll say it again; Mat Fraser has one heck of an on-screen presence and Freak Show needs more of him. It was a nice little treat to get that peek at Paul’s past, »

Elsa Mars’ act is bringing in some very interesting people. Neil Patrick Harris and husband David Burtka (Himym fans may know him as Scooter) have just signed on for guest roles on American Horror Story: Freak Show, while Lily Rabe is set to reprise the role of Sister Mary Eunice McKee from American Horror Story: […]

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.
In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.
Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular »
There’s already a slew of characters in play on American Horror Story: Freak Show, but when folks like Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka and Lily Rabe want in, you give them roles. Harris will guest-star on the 11th and 12th episodes while Burtka is set to make his appearance in the 13th, the season finale. As for Rabe, she’s going to be in episode 10. That’s the final episode before the holidays, so there’s a chance her character could be involved in whatever outrageous winter cliffhanger the writers come up with. Hit the jump for more on their roles. American Horror Story: Freak Show airs on FX on Wednesday nights at 10pm. The Harris/Burtka casting news comes from TV Line. They’re reporting that Harris will play “a chameleon salesman” while Burtka will step in for “a sexy storyline with Jessica Lange’s batty chanteuse.” Here »

Happy Halloween! Well, almost. The haunted holiday is just one day away and we thought we would prepare by celebrating all of our favorite TV and movie witches. Whether it's Fiona (Jessica Lange) from American Horror Story: Coven or a nicer spell-caster like Sabrina (Melissa Joan Hart) from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, there's plenty of famous small screen witches to choose from. But let's not forget all the famous movie witches, like Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) from the Harry Potter series, Winifred Sanderson (Bette Midler) from Hocus Pocus of the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz. So which famous TV or movie witch are you most like? To celebrate Halloween, play our »
I have a sneaking suspicion that thousands of American Horror Story fans are going to run out this morning and go to Jo-Ann Fabric, Michael’s Craft Store, and whatever shoe store is next to them in the mini-mall so that they can buy some lace, hot-glue-gun it to a mask, and then shine their knee-high boots. It’s an instant Elsa Mars costume that is far more flattering than her Life on Mars ensemble we’ve grown accustomed to.Alright, I have to give it to American Horror Story because this is the episode where it finally got good (but I’m going to leave some caveats at the end). The Edward Mordrake device of the two-headed Wes Bentley that rolled in so slowly like a glowing green mist last episode really sprung to life in part two of this Halloween double-feature. Mordrake visiting allows us to discover backstories »

We get a few more backstories this week, thanks to Edward Mordrake and his demon face’s search for America’s Next Top Freak. A doctor took Suzi’s legs at age two after a spinal condition, and her parents abandoned her shortly thereafter. She ended up on the streets and, in an act of jealousy and hatred, she stabbed a dancing hobo in the leg. She hit an artery, and he bled to death. But he inspired her to perform, and she joined the circus. Paul was hated and abused at home, but he loved the cinema, so he came to the States, hoping to get into the movies. He landed during the Depression, was tired of being attacked, and hated himself. They wanted a monster, so he decided to give them one. Couldn’t make the world love him, so he would make them fear him. He chickened »

Does this mean all the series are connected after all?
Does this mean all the American Horror Story series are connected after all? Ahs fans freaked out on Wednesday when it was announced that series regular Lily Rabe would be putting her nun attire back on from Ahs: Asylum to reprise her role as Sister Mary Eunice on Freak Show.
Sister Mary's return won't be the first crossover between the two seasons. Pepper (Naomi Grossman) was a patient in Asylum and is now one of the carnival freaks this season. According to Entertainment Weekly, Sister Mary is part of Pepper's story line and will help explain how she went from the freak show to being institutionalized.

But that's all a still a few episodes away. Though she's scheduled to shoot her scenes this weekend, Rabe doesn't show up in the season until the 10th episode.
As Halloween approaches, we were swapping ghost stories around the ol' People offices. Though we're based in New York, staffers here come from all over, and so it got us thinking about what we like to call the Haunted States of America: What "ghost story" defines your state? This infographic is assembled from a variety of sources - in some cases, it's the "most famous" ghost in each state, in others, it's the one we found the most interesting.
