Michael Chiklis joins the cast of ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’

I know him as “The Commish” – a show that rattled on in the background of my parent’s house growing up… you know… back in the day when TV’s were the size of nitestands.  So it brought back a touch of nostalgia when I read that Michael Chiklis will be joining the cast of the newest edition to the American Horror Story saga – Freak Show.

The Commish

Chiklis is new to the Ryan Murphy world of actors and will join previous Horror Story regulars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Basset and Frances Conroy in the fourth season of the franchise.

Freak Show will be set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950 and feature Lange as a German ex-pat managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S.
