Our Dream Cast for ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’: 10 Creepy Carnival Roles

Pin it

The fourth season of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy’s creepy-campy FX horror anthology, is expected to premiere in October. On Friday, Sarah Paulson took to Twitter to reveal the character (or, more accurately, characters) she’ll be playing on AHS: Freak Show, which is set in a 1950s sideshow — Bette and Dot, a pair of conjoined twins. Damn, girl(s).

Very little else is known about the various roles we’ll see this fall. With that in mind, we’ve taken the liberty of combining some timeless carnival tropes with our favorite members of the series’ recurring ensemble to assemble our dream (or should we say nightmare?) cast.
