A freak show is coming to town!
All My Children alum Finn Wittrock is joining the cast of American Horror Story- Freak Show.
AHS creator announced the good news via Twitter, but offered up no other info on the sci-fi drama or what role Wittrock will play. Murphy recently cast Wittrock on the HBO movie, The Normal Heart.
Freak Show is the latest AHS installment. It centers on the last remaining freak show in America circa 1952. Sounds fun, right? Wrong. Sounds disturbing. Very disturbing.
AHS vets Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Frances Conroy are all returning.
Neil Patrick Harris might also be joining the cast (HUGE MIGHT) after giving Murphy a letter expressing his interest.
“I wrote a letter to Ryan asking if I can be in it, even though I wasn’t even available to be in it,” Harris admitted. “To do one that involves any kind of freak, circus nonsense is going to be so unsettling to watch. Can’t wait!”
Much to everyones surprise, Murphy tweeted Harris back writing, “Of course you can be on Freak Show! I have a role I’d think you’d love.”
Harris hasn’t responded yet, but as you can imagine, the fan reaction has been incredible. Fans really want to see NPH on Freak Show!
This isn’t the first time a huge star lobbied to be featured on the show. Lea Michele has been hoping to score a part for awhile now, but with no luck, which is weird because Ryan Murphy is also the producer of Glee.
What do you think? Who would you like to see on AHS? Personally, I can totally see NPH as a sad, demented, clown. (Please don’t ask why)!

WATCH: “American Horror Story” Invites You To The Cult for Season 7
Ryan Murphy is taking some inspo from R. Kelly for the upcoming 7th season of American Horror Story.
Sorry, we had to.
The director revealed the show’s new theme…. drumroll, please…. CULT.
Ryan, who is super secretive about show themes, dropped clues leading up to the reveal on Instagram, which included creepy clowns, American flags, and a person being eaten alive by a hive of bees. Not creepy at all.
While fans still don’t really know what “Cult” signifies but in his announcement, Murphy asked fans to “join the cult.”
Here’s what we know so far:
- Twisty the Clown is back for the season.
- The season kicks off on election night, which explains all the American flags.
- Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton will be portrayed in some shape or form.
- Lena Dunham has joined the cast
- So did Billie Lourd
If I were to take a guess, I would say the series will be set in a colonial town and everyone will be blindly in a patriotic, pro-America cult.
And maybe the cult is run by clowns? I’m definitely getting Purge movie vibes!
I guess we’ll find out when the series debuts on Sept. 5!
American Horror Story-Freak Show “Curtain Call” (4×13)
The curtain has fallen on our freakish friends, and last weeks season finale of American Horror Story Freak Show, left me pretty disappointed. Before I get into the recap I have to say, I wasn’t expecting it to end this way. The freaks we’ve all come to love and know all have their finale moments and I wanted it done better.
Dandy goes on a killing spree, before he is killed himself. All of the freaks we come to love, Seal Boy, The Strongwoman, Meryl Streep Jr, and more are shot by Dandy. Desiree is the only one to survive. Jimmy and his now claws comes back to the campground to see the massacre. He Bette and Dot and Desiree plan to kill Dandy for what he has done. I felt like it was a pretty weak plot to have Dandy kill off the characters, especially since it was the finale.
Once they find him, the only thing they can think of is torture. They let him drown in Houdini’s tank, making his farewell as the ultimate freak in a jar. Did I like the way he died, not really. I felt like they could have done more to him, I was expecting some crazy stuff.
Elsa and Massimo are off to hollywood to start Elsa’s grand career. She is fame hungry, but when Hollywood rejects her, the only thing left for her is to find love. She can’t get that with Massimo since he doesn’t have a soul, so she offs herself to Edward Mordrake. Remember in the halloween episode when Mordrake was looking to make his own dead freak show, well now she is part of it.
I felt like they didn’t do Elsa justice either. This was Jessica Langes last year on AHS, and I needed more. I didn’t want to see her end just by sining songs to the dead, I wanted to see her die in a crazy way, or live up to the damage she did with her freaks. Overall we saw everyones story come to an end, and its crazy to admit but I will miss my fellow freaks.

American Horror Story: Freak Show- Show Stoppers (4×12)
My fellow freaks, our favorite television show is coming to an end. It’s crazy to think that we’ve come this far, but tonight the curtain will come down and it will be the season finale of the freak show. Before we get into tonights episode, last week left our jaws dropped when a magic trick went HORRIBLY wrong. Everyone finds out about Elsa killing Ethel, and Jimmy is having a hard time realizing he has no hands. And if things weren’t freakier, Marjorie (Chester’s Doll) confesses to Bette and Dot that Chester killed his wife and her lover. Bette and Dot are not okay with this, but I guess the show must go on.
Chester has his first meeting as owner, and wants to change up his finale so that Bette and Dot are cut in half. They are completely thrown off and decline the offer. This is when things start to get a little crazy. Chester begins to hallucinate, and thinks that Maggie is his former wife and so he locks her feet in place so that they can’t be pulled into the box. He then saws her in half and all of her guts spill out onto the stage. I WAS MORTIFIED.
Chester then looses it, and starts stabbing Marjorie. He thinks he “Killed her” but we all know she is a dummy. He takes her to the police station and turns himself in. He is then sent to an asylum for the crazy. Back at the camp, everyone is on the hunt of Elsa, so much that they don’t even mourn Maggie. They all know what Elsa did, and want to punish her for it. Bette and Dot warn her about everyone coming for her, and she fleas. She is then seen with Dandy, who has now bought the show. As he is taking a look around his inventory, he hears something in the tent. In a cage, he sees Stanley, who has been transformed, from what looks like amputations. It looks like a creepy little version of Meep, and I was very disgusted. I can’t wait to see how the freak show ends, since this episode was the scariest all season long.
