The cast for American Horror Story: Freakshow has been announced at SDCC and I couldn't be happier...although no Lily Rabe this year and that sucks. Couldn't we swap her for Emma Roberts??

  • Jessica Lange is Elsa Mars, a German expatriate and the manager of one of America's last remaining freak shows in Jupiter.
  • Sarah Paulson is the dual role of Siamese twins Bette and Dot (a vision to behold)
  • Michael Chiklis is Evan del Toreado, strongman and husband of Ethel Darling, ex-husband of Desiree Dupree.
  • Kathy Bates is Ethel Darling The mother to freak show performer Jimmy, and second wife of freak show strongman Dell Toledo, and a performer in her own right.
  • Angela Bassett is del Toreado's ex-wife Desiree Dupre, she is also a performer in Mars' show.

  • Evan Peters is Jimmy Darling, the son of Ethel and Dell, and another performer in Mars' freak show.
  • Emma Roberts is Maggie - no details yet

I'm happy with this line up. I'm stoked that Angela Bassett is coming back, she wasn't used enough in my opinion in Coven so hopefully we get more of her in this series.

Are you looking forward to [American Horror Story](series:206668) Freakshow? I know I am.
