Exciting news from the "American Horror Story: Freak Show" panel at Paleyfest 2014. Emmy winner Michael Chiklis is joining the cast for the fourth season of the show.
Creator Ryan Murphy says, "[Michael Chiklis] is playing Evan [Peter's] father and he will be Kathy Bates' ex-husband," which is exciting indeed. Murphy does not specify if Bates is Peters' mother, however.
制片人Ryan Murphy说：“Michael Chiklis将会扮演Evan的父亲，他是Kathy Bates的前夫，”这个设定非常棒。Murphy还没有透露关于Bates是不是Peter的亲生妈妈。
Chiklis says of his reaction when Murphy pitched the piece to him, "I'm terrified and I'm going to do it."
Murphy also confirms that every person on the panel is coming back in some capacity, which means in addition to the previously-announced Jessica Lange, Angela Basset, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy and Sarah Paulson, Season 4 will also feature Denis O'Hare, Gabourey Sidibe, Emma Roberts, Jamie Brewer and Chiklis. Murphy further says that there will be a few faces from Seasons 1 and 2 appearing in Season 4, but he does not reveal who they might be.
Murphy还透露，之前参演的每个演员都有机会回归，也就是说除了之前已经确认的Jessica Lange、Angela Basset、Kathy Bates、Evan Peters、Frances Conroy和Sarah Paulson以外，Danis O'ou.comHare、Gabourey Sidibe、Emma Roberts、Jamie Brewer和Chiklis也会回归。他还透露说，1、2季中路过面的人也有可能会回来，不过他没有透露具体是谁。
"American Horror Story: Freak Show" will premiere in fall 2014.
