Wes Bentley to Join American Horror Story
Another day, another piece of information regarding the upcoming fourth installment of American Horror Story
, aptly titled American Horror Story: Freak Show
. Today's piece of news is that a new cast member will be tackling the Ryan Murphy-helmed series.
Wes Bentley, who was most recently seen in the first Hunger Games
film, will be taking on the role of Eddie, a mysterious and violent man from Kathy Bates' character's past. While not much is known about the upcoming season, we do know that it will take place in the 1950s within a freak show-type carnival run by Jessica Lange's German ex-pat character.
Joining Bentley and Lange in the fourth season will be returning repertory members Sarah Paulson (who will be portraying one of the freaks- specifically the two headed lady), Even Peters (who will be playing Bates' son), Denis O'Hare (as a "collector of freaks"), Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, and Jaime Brewer. Also joining the cast will be Michael Chiklis, who will be playing Bates' ex-husband. The fourth season will kick off this fall on FX.
