Ryan Murphy Has A Role Neil Patrick Harris Would "Love" On 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' 4293866 News

Could Neil Patrick Harris be heading for American Horror Story's Freak Show? Ryan Murphy certainly seems willing for the How I Met Your Mother actor to join the cast!

Harris is perfectly comfortable in unconventional roles as he's currently starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway in which he plays an East German transgender woman whose sex change operation has tragically gone wrong. But the actor would relish an opportunity to appear on American Horror Story, and as we all know there are various opportunities on the show to appear in bizarre roles. Sarah Paulson, for instance, is currently filming the season as conjoined twins!

Speaking in an interview with EW, Harris admitted he would love to be in AHS: Freak Show and has even contacted Ryan Murphy about the possibility of being in the series. He stated, "I wrote a letter to Ryan, asking if I could be in it. Even if I wasn't available to be in it! And he never responded." Harris further explained his love of AHS, stating "I just love those series and Coven was fantastic. And to do one that involves any kind of freaks, circus, nonsense is going to be so unsettling to watch."

Harris' appearance in the series may well be a possibility as Murphy, upon hearing Harris' interview, responded via Twitter. He offered Harris a place on the show, writing to Harris, "Of course you can be on Freak Show! I have a role I think you'd love."

Freak Show is set to premiere in October of this year and sees the usual suspects return for the fourth series of the hit FX show. Paulson, who has starred in all four series of the show, is playing Dot and Bette the conjoined twins. Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Kathy Bates and Peters' fiancé Emma Roberts are all set to return for the upcoming series.

Tammy 4269914 Film Reviews

Melissa McCarthy is clearly in a rut: the title character in this film isn't very far removed from her previous roles in The Heat and Identity Thief. Yes, Tammy is another chubby slob who is on the road to some sort of epiphany, and along the way she realises that simply running a comb through her ratty hair might make her look more human. At least the film has a seriously strong supporting cast who almost make it worth a look.

Tammy (McCarthy) is sacked from her job at a fast-food outlet on the same day she discovers that her husband (Faxon) is having a fling with a neighbour (Tony Collette). In a childish rage, she runs home to her parents (Allison Janney and Dan Aykroyd) and then decides to keep running, taking her grandmother Pearl (Sarandon) along for the ride. Pearl has a dream to see Niagara Falls before she dies, but she's just about as immature as Tammy is, so they immediately start getting into trouble. Their antics include a series of incidents involving a jet-ski, flirting and more with a father and son (Gary Cole and Mark Duplass), robbing a burger joint and attending a raucous 4th of July party at the home of Pearl's wealthy cousin (Kathy Bates).

Tammy is even less worldly wise than McCarthy's previous variations on the character: she has never even attempted to grow up, so reacts to everything like a toddler. Aside from not being remotely funny, this is deeply annoying from the start. And even the characters around her don't laugh - they roll their eyes in exasperation. Then after establishing her as a relentless loser who brings misfortune on herself, the script (written by McCarthy and her real-life husband Ben Falcone, who also directs and appears as Tammy's boss) contrives to make Tammy sympathetic by portraying her as some sort of a victim. Meanwhile, she of course slowly begins to look less cartoonish simply because she changes her shirt and takes a shower along the way.

In other words, everything about the film sits right on the surface. Even the romantic plot-thread feels paper-thin, but it's more engaging than the idiotic comedy mayhem. At least the film passes briskly, never lingering very long over its more pointless gags while offering some funny moments to Sarandon and the cameo-style supporting cast. In other words, there's possibly a decent film in this material if the pratfalls were edited out and the focus was instead put on the character interaction and family issues. These things have hints of resonance and real humour to them, but the random barrage of slapstick is merely exhausting.

Tammy 4268778 Videos 2nd July 2014

When Tammy is late for work following an unlikely road accident, she is fired from her job at Toppy Jacks fast food restaurant. And that's just the icing on the cake when she gets home to find that her husband has been sleeping with their neighbour. With nowhere to stay, she decides to take a road trip to Niagara Falls, but first she needs to borrow the car from her mother. When she refuses, the only person left to turn to is her alcoholic and diabetic grandmother Pearl who, unfortunately for Tammy, also happens to have an adventurous streak and wants to come along for the ride. The journey is, predictably, full of serious hitches. Not only does Pearl get arrested, but Tammy gets into some serious trouble with the police after she attempts an 'armed' robbery on a nearby Toppy Jacks, crashes a speedboat on the side of a lake and nearly runs some sightseers over in a nature park. It's no smooth ride, but it could be the perfect bonding experience.

'Tammy' is a hilarious new comedy serving as main star Melissa McCarthy's ('The Heat', 'Bridesmaids') first venture into film writing. It co-stars and has been co-written and directed by her husband Ben Falcone in his directorial debut and it is scheduled for UK release on July 4th 2014.

Melissa McCarthy Shines In First Indie Project, "Tammy" 4266999 News

Melissa McCarthy’s star has risen rather rapidly over 2013 and 2014, with the world finally catching on to the comedienne’s brilliance. Now, despite a whole load of stupid that she has to deal with on the regular – a quick look at the message boards on her IMDB page proves it’s quite a lot – McCarthy now has both the time and the influence to work on her own pet projects.

Enter Tammy, McCarthy’s new movie, opening July 2. She stars in the road-trip comedy, which she also co-wrote with her husband Ben Falcone. This is Falcone’s directorial debut, but despite its indie vibe, the movie is getting a pretty good rap from critics.

The movie sees Tammy (McCarthy) put the breaks on a frustrating, boring life, after being fired from her mediocre job and finds her husband cheating.

Despite having to deal with constant criticism for her body,
McCarthy has risen to the top of a harsh and unforgiving industry.

The movie sees McCarthy acting opposite a cast full of baddass ladies, including Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, Allison Janney and Sarah Baker in a minor part. You may know Baker from her recent appearance on Louis, when her speech about fat girls and body shaming had folks across the land giving her a standing ovation (we’re guessing).

Fans of McCarthy, equal representation or just general awesomeness will surely get a kick out of this film.

Evan Peters "Pumped" Michael Chiklis & Kathy Bates Will Play His Parents In AHS Freak Show 4130440 News

Michael Chiklis, the actor best known for his roles in The Shield and the Fantastic Four movies, will be joining the cast of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

Michael Chiklis
Michael Chiklis has joined the cast of American Horror Story.

The announcement was made during the final night of PaleyFest in which the last season of American Horror Story: Coven, was celebrated. Other cast members appear to be thrilled at the prospect of working alongside Chiklis, none more so than Evan Peters who will play his son on the upcoming season.

See more pictures of Michael Chiklis on Contactmusic.

We know little so far of the upcoming series of American Horror Story. Creator Ryan Murphy revealed earlier this month that the fourth season of the show will be set in Jupiter, Florida in 1950 and will be centred on a freak show. The setting was a fan favourite following the finale of Coven in January of this year. However, as the show has already covered an incredibly haunted house, a lunatic asylum and a boarding school for witches, fans were concerned as to where the show would go next.

All the usual suspects will be back for the fourth season. Jessica Lange will once again take the lead and is reportedly a German "Marlene Dietrich" style character who manages one of the last remaining Freak Shows in the 1950s US. Sarah Paulson, who alongside Lange and Peters, has starred in all three seasons of the show has once again been cast in the upcoming series. Peters and his fiancée Emma Roberts are also set to return. Kathy Bates, who appeared in American Horror Story: Coven as serial killer Madame LaLaurie, will also be returning.

Tammy 4067293 Videos 14th February 2014

Tammy's life seems to have just become an unfortunate string of events having been dismissed from her job at fast food joint Toppy Jacks and discovered that her husband has been having an affair with the neighbour. Now penniless and virtually homeless, Tammy decides to set out on a road trip to Niagara Falls. Her mother down the street refuses to lend her the car, however, and she is forced to beg a favour from her diabetic but resolutely alcoholic grandmother Pearl. Unfortunately for Tammy, Pearl wants to come along for the ride, and after finding out that Pearl has enough money to provide for them both on the way, Tammy accepts - even if it means becoming her grandmother's personal carer. It's by no means a smooth ride, with Pearl getting arrested and Tammy trying to rob a Toppy Jacks, but it could change both their lives forever.

This charming comedy is about self-discovery and family bonds, and serves as the directorial debut of actor Ben Falcone. It is also Oscar nominated actress Melissa McCarthy's ('The Heat', 'Bridesmaids') first foray into screenwriting and both star in the film with the latter playing the title character. 'Tammy' is currently scheduled for release in the UK on July 4th 2014.

AHS Coven Recap: "Go To Hell" Or The One Where Everybody Died. 4037411 News

Besides being the most aptly named episode of American Horror Story so far  – several characters literally went to hell – last night's Go To Hell also finally laid out some of this season’s mechanics, like those infamous Seven Wonders we’ve been hearing so much about. And do we even need to say it? Spoilers ahead. So many spoilers.

Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange
With Fiona (Jessica Lange) and three other characters biting the dust in this episode, things are hitting the fan.

"Every generation needs its leader, the Supreme. No simple test could ever determine the sovereign among us. We rely upon seven,” we learn from a handy witchcraft tutorial. Those seven turn out to be telekinesis, concilium (controlling someone else’s mind), transmutation (transporting oneself to another location), divination (to see the future), vitalum vitalis (to bring a person back from the dead), descensum (to move between life and the afterlife) and pyrokinesis (to control fire with the mind). This means that whoever gets to be the Supreme (Fiona was betting on Queenie in this episode) will have to perform all three during a ceremony in the next and final episode.

Meanwhile, we said goodbye to a total of four characters (all of the good ones, too), as each wound up in their personalized form of hell. With Marie Laveau newly mortal again, it was obviously time for the writers to off her and they did it in the most appropriate way – with Delphine also dying at the hand of Queenie and being forced to spend eternity alongside the voodoo queen. To atone for their sins (and for, you know, selling their souls and all that) the two are trapped in Delphine’s attic of horrors, with Marie being forced to kill her nemesis’ daughters over and over again, while Delphine watches. It was gruesome as… well, as hell, but there was still worse to come.

Angela Bassett, Golden Globes
Angela Bassett's voodoo witch Marie Laveau was one of the best characters. "Was" being the keyword.

Fiona got a decidedly less poetic goodbye, being chopped to pieces by the Axeman and thrown to the gators – no one saw that coming, right? Let’s see Misty Day try to fix this one. Then, in some form of twisted justice, the Axeman himself gets stabbed repeatedly by a coven of witches, before he gets the chance to off them himself. Yet another reminder that you never want to get on a teenage witch’s bad side.

Matters got more complicated as Queenie flexed her brand new powers and returned Misty from the grave and Zoe ditched the simple life with Kyle to return to the coven, meaning there is still an (almost) full set of witches in the running for the supremacy. So with that, the stage is set for next week’s episode and the big reveal.

American Horror Story Season 3 Episode 7 'The Dead' Recap 3965111 News

American Horror Story has taken convoluted and bizarre to a whole new level. Season 3, Episode 7 entitled 'The Dead' aired on Wednesday night (20th November).

Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange
Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange star in American Horror Story: Coven as Cordelia and her mother Fiona.

Madison (Emma Roberts) is back from the dead, thanks to Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), and is struggling to feel anything. She overeats, takes drugs and finally ends up in the arms of Kyle (Evan Peters). Kyle is still unable to speak and has discovered, owing to numerous tattoos around his body, that he is made up of his fraternity brother's body parts. Zoe considers killing Kyle, concerned he is a danger after killing his sexually abusive mother, but changes her mind. She attempts to communicate with Kyle but he is reduced to being a comfort for both Madison and Zoe simultaneously.

Zoe has also been busy discovering who killed Madison and she is forced to enchant Spaulding's (Denis O'Hare) tongue in order to force him to tell the truth. He reveals Fiona (Jessica Lange) killed Madison and Zoe kills him in return for his honesty. Zoe discovers Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) attempting to navigate her way around the house and, after Zoe reveals the truth about Fiona, they decide to kill the Supreme. Cordelia suggests Zoe may well be the next supreme but only if Fiona is out of the picture.

Taissa Farmiga
Taissa Farmiga stars in AHS as Zoe.

Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) and Delphine (Kathy Bates) appear to be forming a connection until Queenie visits Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett). Laveau offers Queenie a deal: she can live in her coven in exchange for Queen delivering Delphine. Queen seems unwilling to betray Delphine until she questions the "immortal racist" on her crimes in the LaLaurie house. Delphine reveals she had her husband's illegitimate son killed and his blood used in one of her face marks. Queen is horrified and decides to give Delphine to Laveau. 

Meanwhile, Fiona is dallying with The Axe Man (Danny Huston). He reveals, as ghost, he spent years watching and protecting her. Although initially appalled Fiona, who is ailing rapidly, eventually returns to The Axe Man. 

We're now over halfway through the third season of the FX drama and the show has been renewed for a fourth season. Suggestions were made that the next season will be a spin off from Coven, yet these have now been quashed as creator Ryan Murphy has discussed the next season in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. The next season's location will be revealed in later episodes of this season. Murphy said the next season will not be set in the same world as Coven, he stated "It's not contemporary," and added "It's either going to shoot in New Orleans or it's going to shoot in Santa Fe."

Emma Roberts and Evan Peters
Off-screen couple Emma Roberts and Evan Peters both star in the show as, respectively, a resurrected witch and a fraternity boy.

Murphy said the next season will not be set in the same world as Coven, he stated "It's not contemporary," and added "It's either going to shoot in New Orleans or it's going to shoot in Santa Fe."

American Horror Story Season 4 To Be Set In New Orleans, or Santa Fe 3964144 News

"It's either going to shoot in New Orleans or it's going to shoot in Santa Fe," he told Entertainment Weekly. 

Speculation suggested that the next season would be a spin-off of Coven, which tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America, though Murphy said that idea is now dead. "We were starting to break Episode 8 or 9 and we were like, 'Well, we can't kill that person off because we need them for the spin-off,'" he said, adding, "As soon as those words were said, I was like, 'There is no spin-off.' Because it took away from the joy of the show. The reason the show is successful is no one is safe ever."

Murphy has said he will drop hints about the next story in the series during the final episodes of the current season and EW reports that it will begin happening from around Episode 11 onwards. 

Coven has seen the long-absent Supreme Fiona (Jessica Lange) arrive to ensure the safety of the Coven, a school opened in New Orleans to teach young witches how to protect themselves. Events reveal a long-held rivalry between the witches of Salem and the Voodoo practitioners of New Orleans, as well as grudge between the Voodoo Queen (Angela Bassett) and a socialite serial killer (Kathy Bates).

American Horror Story continues on FX on Wednesday evenings.

'American Horror Story' Picked Up For Fourth Season 3939528 News

American Horror Story won't be leaving our screens any time soon, as the hit FX horror series has been picked up for a fourth season by studio bosses at FX. The Ryan Murphy-created show has been ordered for another 13-episode run by FX chiefs, who announced their plans to continue with the show earlier this week (via TV Guide).

AHS: Coven
Kathy Bates is one of the main attractions in the latest season

"Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer," John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions, said in a statement released on behalf of the station. "Time and time again he reinvents the form...Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. AHS: Coven is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better."

The popular series is currently enjoying success in its third season, America Horror Story: Coven, which has taken viewers back in time to tell the secret history of witchcraft and wizardry in America. In previous seasons we've focused on a family who move into a home haunted by its former occupants, followed by the tales of a 1964 institution for the criminally insane. No word yet on when or where the next season will take place, all we know is that it's going to be spooky.

The show has garnered a cult following since it first aired on FX in 2011 and has seen a myriad of different guest stars and season regulars come and go, including Emma Roberts, Zachary Quinto and current stars Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates. So far each season has been a hit with critics and the show has earned a total of 34 Emmy Award nominations.
