Michael Chiklis Cast in American Horror Story Season 4

American Horror Story Season 4 Adds Michael Chiklis

American Horror Story wrapped up PaleyFest in LA this week, and though the panel mostly focused on the most recent season, Coven, we got a few tidbits on American Horror Story: Freak Show. Ryan Murphy revealed one big detail: Michael Chiklis is joining the cast! At the end of the panel, Murphy introduced Chiklis, who came out proudly and declared, "We're going to scare you," then admitted he was "terrified," but "up for it." Sarah Paulson offered him this advice: "Strap in." Chiklis previously starred on another FX show, The Shield, for which he won an Emmy.

Murphy told us a couple details about his character: he'll play Evan Peters's father and the ex-husband of Kathy Bates's character, though we are still waiting to find out more about their characters. The other casting detail Murphy dropped was that everyone who was on the panel that night would also be in season four: besides those previously announced, that includes Jamie Brewer and Gabourey Sidibe.
