Michael Chiklis is about to get his freak on.
The Shield and Fantastic Four thesp is joining Season 4 of FX show American Horror Story (recently revealed as American Horror Story: Freak Show) for the anthology series' upcoming run.
Chiklis, who bagged himself an Emmy for his turn as Detective Vic Mackey in The Shield and appeared as Ben Grimm in Fox's Tm Story-directed Fantastic Four, will portray the ex-husband and father of characters played, respectively, by Kathy Bates and Evan Peters.
Although not much is yet known about American Horror Story: Freak Show, series regular Jessica Lange will play a German expat in the 1950s who is a "collector of freaks".
Her group of freaks Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy all play performers whom Lange’s character has rescued.
Great news. Chiklis is an excellent actor and I've enjoyed every Season of American Horror Story until now. I only hope that for Freak Show, the writers will stop resurrecting the characters that were killed off one or two episodes back... Where's the drama in that!?
