American Horror Story: Freak Show Adds Patti LaBelle to the Cast

ON

American Horror StoryWhere are they going with this? TV Line says that Patti LaBelle is being added to the cast of American Horror Story: Freakshow. The singer will have a four-episode arc.

Anyone else getting Stevie Nicks flashbacks to American Horror Story: Coven? I sure am, and I’m a little scared. Nicks’ cameo last season was cute and worked just fine at first, but then it just got a bit…too much. Here’s the thing, though, TV Line says LaBelle isn’t going to sing, rather, she’ll play a mother to Gabourey Sidibe’s character and a woman who is unraveling the mystery of “Twisty the clown killer.”

Wait, the clown killer? Or, the killer clown? TV Line doesn’t elaborate.

Jessica Lange, Michael Chiklis, Sarah Paulson, Bates, Angela Bassett, Jamie Brewer, Wes Bentley Denis O’Hare and Frances Conroy star in the next season which is set in the ’50s and uses a traveling freakshow as a backdrop.
