FX is getting their freak on with another teaser for their hotly anticipated “American Horror Story: Freak Show“. The video titled “Lick” features a reptile like split tongue slipping over a lollypop. I suspect that FX will be teasing us in this fashion for a while till the official full trailer is available for viewing pleasure. Sarah Paulson will be “duplicated” using a mix of practical physical effects make-up and CGI, to bring to live her character with two heads! She will take on the roles of Dot and Bettie, conjoined twins joining the freak show. Michael Chiklis will play a strong man who was married to Bassett’s character, and Lange will be playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S. Grammy-winning singer Patti LaBelle joined “Freakshow” recently as the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character. Murphy also recently hired the world’s smallest woman Jyoti Amge to officially join the cast ensemble.
The storyline is still kept under wraps, but we know at least that the “carnival” themed fourth season will be set in the 1950’s. Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy all play performers whom Lange’s character has rescued. Freak Show’s 13 episodes will track this group as they do anything to keep their business around. The “Freak Show” is heading our October 8 at 10 P.M. ET/PT on FX.
