American Horror Story: Freak Show Adds John Carroll Lynch and More New Details Revealed
The Freak Show doesn’t begin until October, but American Horror Story took Comic-Con by storm on Saturday, July 26 and revealed some key details including people, places and names.
Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts and Angela Bassett made their Comic-Con debut alongside their costar veterans Evan Peters and Michael Chiklis. Executive producer Tim Minear was on hand to reveal details including character names and the big bad played by Body of Proof and The Americans veteran John Carroll Lynch. Think Rubber Man and Bloody Face, but worse. Yep, nightmares already.
