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!

Neil Patrick Harris is a huge fan of American Horror Story.

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.

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.

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.

Did Julia Roberts' Half-Sister Nancy Motes Plan to Derail Her Oscars Chances? 4067372 News

The half-sister of actress Julia Roberts, Nancy Motes, was found dead last Sunday after what is believed to have been a prescription drugs overdose. Motes, who was 37 when she died, was found dead in a bathtub in the LA residence she shared with her fiancé, John Dilbeck. Though it has not yet been determined whether Motes' death was accidental or a suicide, indications of a suicide note - reported to be eight pages long - was found at the apartment.

Julia Roberts' Half Sister, Nancy Motes, Was Found Dead Last Sunday.

Nancy and Julia shared the same mother but not their father. Since Nancy's death, Dilbeck has felt compelled to deny speculation that his fiancée was a drug addict after reports that Julia has tried to save her half-sister dozens of times by encouraging her to seek help in rehab. However, a neighbour and apparent close friend of Nancy's has claimed that the TV worker's death wasn't the result of recklessness: It was "not a Philip Seymour Hoffman thing' but a planned suicide," they said.

A more sinister rumour has also arisen, alleging that Motes deliberately chose her time of death to sabotage Julia's chances at the upcoming Academy Awards in March. Roberts is up for Best Supporting Actress for her role alongside Meryl Streep in August: Osage County.

John's brother, Conner Dilbeck, claimed to The Daily Mail that Nancy intended for her drug overdose to disrupt Roberts' promotional work and public image in the run up to the Oscars. Dilbeck allages that Nancy's suicide note contains "dark secrets" about Roberts that she wanted to be made public now to scupper any hopes of an Oscar win. The shock of Nancy's death meant Roberts could not attend the Oscar nominees lunch on Sunday. 

"We are talking about people who are powerful," Conner said. "People who have very delicate power, people who are in the limelight. Their power can be destroyed very easily if unfortunate things make them look more wicked. They have to be careful, it can destroy their career or their Academy Award," he added. Conner also claimed that Roberts inflicted "pure cruelty" on the Glee production worker and therefore is "terrified" about the note leaking.

Speculation Has Arisen That Motes Timed Her Death To Sabotage Roberts' Oscar Chances.

"I am posting this as a plea to everyone to Pray for my Brother John," wrote Conner on Facebook. "His lovely Fiancé, Nancy Motes, was driven to Take her Life yesterday because of the Pure Cruelty of her Sister, Julia Roberts (yes Ms. Pretty Woman herself), that has done everything in her power to Ruin her and my brothers lives. [sic]" "He is overwhelmed by this horrible event and all the Turmoil Julia has subjected them too," claimed Conner.

A source close to Julia argues that the actress only wanted the best for her half sister and was trying to save her from substance abuse: "Julia tried in vain over the years, even in the last six months, to get Nancy to go to rehab," they said, via RadarOnline, adding "Nancy refused the offers and that is when she would often publicly lash out at Julia."

An autopsy for Motes is scheduled for Monday but a toxicology report will take between 8 and 10 weeks.

Nancy Motes Left Lengthy Suicide Note Detailing Her Troubled Relationship With Sister Julia Roberts 4065195 News

Julia Roberts has been the focus of media attention following the death of her half-sister Nancy Motes. 37-year-old Motes was discovered on Sunday (9th February) in Los Angeles and appears to have committed suicide by overdosing on prescription medication.

Nancy Motes suicide note allegedly included pages about her relationship with Julia Roberts (pictured).

Motes was discovered on Sunday by her fiancé, John Dilbeck, in the bathroom of the L.A. house she was staying at. It seems she had been dead for at least 12 hours before her body was discovered at 2pm and had been pet- sitting for one of her clients. Sources suggest that she may have taken an overdose of prescription medication. 

According to some reports, Motes was struggling with drug addiction, although other sources deny this. Roberts, according to reports in NY Daily News, had attempted to check her sister into a rehab centre but Motes was unwilling to co-operate. 

Yet it is not simply Roberts' connection with the deceased which has attracted the attention of the press but their apparently complex and difficult relationship. It seems those close to Roberts believe Motes rejected her sister's help in overcoming her alleged addiction. A source, speaking to RadarOnline.com, said "It [Motes' comments] hurt Julia, but she knew her sister was battling addiction. The addiction to prescription drugs made Nancy a totally different person. There would be periods of sobriety and with that brought clarity. It would be during those moments that the sisters would reconnect. Sadly, of course, those times became less frequent before her death."

Nancy Motes was a member of a highly successful family: (L-R) Emma Roberts, Julia Roberts and Lisa Roberts Gillian.

However, those close to Motes claim Roberts had refused to even communicate with her sister, let alone provide support. Another source close to Motes claimed that Motes "was on some prescription medications, but she wasn't abusing them. She wasn't a drug addict." The source continued by stating that Roberts had not offered to help her half-sister and that she had "never offered to pay for anything."

Roberts was, according to reports, evidently on Motes' mind in the hours before her death and she allegedly wrote a five page suicide note. The note, as NY Daily News reports, included a number of pages on her relationship with Roberts in addition to one page to her fiancé and another to her mother. Another source, presumably close to the LAPD, spoke to the NY Daily News about the suicide note: "There were three pages of rantings that her sister drove her to do this. There was one page to her mom, telling her how much she loved her, and one page apologising to [her fiancé, John Dilbeck]."

In the weeks before her death, Motes publically attacked Roberts and the rest of her family on Twitter. The tweets have since been deleted, as Perez Hilton reports, but accused her family of "abandoning her" and verbally abused her older sister. Motes also gave an interview last year in which she claimed the August Osage County actress bullied her, focussing on her weight. 

Roberts has not publically discussed Motes' death and has cancelled a number of public appearances. Her representative released a statement, as E! reports, stating: "It is with deep sadness that the family of Nancy Motes confirms that she was found dead in Los Angeles yesterday of an apparent drug overdose. The family is both shocked and devastated."

Emma Roberts' fiancé thought she was 'weird' 4047547 News

Emma Roberts' fiancé thought she was ''weird'' when they first met.

The couple - who got engaged over the Christmas period - were introduced to each other while filming 'Adult World' in 2012, but the 22-year-old actress admits her beau Evan Peters, 26, didn't show her an ounce of interest at first, despite her endless flirting.

Speaking on chat show 'Chelsea Lately' she said: ''We met on the movie. Everyone thought we dated on the movie and we didn't, not for a long time after. I actually, on the set, was like, 'Oh yeah, we're totally gonna date.'

''And I would like flirt with him, which ended up looking like I had something in my eye because I'd be like, 'Hey, what's up?' and he literally didn't speak to me the entire movie. He thought I was so weird.''

However, the blonde beauty admits her costume didn't do her any favours when it came to encouraging Evan to ask her out on a date.

She joked: ''I had no makeup, it looks like I cut my own hair off, so I was not exactly looking cute to get a man.''

However, the path of love has not always been smooth for the couple, as in July last year Emma - niece of actress Julia Roberts - was arrested when they had a fight in Montreal, Canada, which left him with a bloody nose and a bite mark, and her with bruised legs.

The police had intervened after somebody else in their hotel had called for help, but Emma was released without charge.

The couple didn't break up over the incident, and friends later claimed they have a ''pretty extreme'' relationship but were ''crazy in love'' with each other.

Evan Peters Thought Emma Roberts Was "Weird" 4047410 News

Emma Roberts, the niece of actress Julia Roberts and one of the stars of American Horror Story: Coven, appeared on Chelsea Lately on Wednesday (January 29th). She told the show's host, Chelsea Handler, about her first encounter with fiancé and American Horror Story co-star, Evan Peters.

Emma Roberts and Evan Peters
Emma Roberts discussed her relationship with Evan Peters on Chelsea Lately.

Roberts and Peters met in 2012 on the set of the comedy Adult World and, although Roberts was taken with 27-year-old Peters, the feeling wasn't initially mutual. Roberts claimed from the onset she was determined the two would get together, she told Handler: "I actually, on the set, was like, 'Oh yeah, we're totally going to date.'"

Roberts stated that, contrary to popular opinion, she and Peters did not start dating on the set of Adult World. She believes her character in the comedy was responsible for their delayed union as she was not at her most attractive. On this matter Roberts said: "I have no makeup on, it looks like I cut my own hair off, so I was not exactly looking cute to get a man. So we ended up dating way, way after."

The couple, pictured here at the show's premiere, work on American Horror Story: Coven together:

She continued to relate how she attempted to attract his attention, which was evidently successful as the two announced their engagement earlier this month! Roberts said, during the interview, "I would try to like flirt with him, which ended up looking like I had something in my eye because I'd be like, 'Hey, what's up?' [batting her eyelashes]. And he literally didn't speak to me the entire movie. He thought I was so weird."

Handler couldn't resist asking how the two finally ended up dating and Roberts revealed it was Peters who, despite Robert's awkward flirting, made the first move. Handler asked "So then how do you get together after the movie is over? Who has to make the move? You or him?" To which Roberts responded, laughing, "Definitely not me! I'm a lady, he texted me and then we got together."

Attention was first drawn to the seemingly happy couple last July when Roberts was arrested in Montreal for domestic violence following, what the couple later called, an "unfortunate misunderstanding." In the same statement they also said they were "working together to move past it."

The couple announced their engagement earlier this month.

Emma Roberts, the niece of actress Julia Roberts and one of the stars of American Horror Story: Coven, appeared on Chelsea Lately on Wednesday (January 29th). She told the show's host, Chelsea Handler, about her first encounter with fiancé and American Horror Story co-star, Evan Peters.

Emma Roberts discussed her relationship with Evan Peters on Chelsea Lately.

Roberts and Peters met in 2012 on the set of the comedy Adult World and, although Roberts was taken with 27-year-old Peters, the feeling wasn't initially mutual. Roberts claimed from the onset she was determined the two would get together, she told Handler: "I actually, on the set, was like, 'Oh yeah, we're totally going to date.'"

Roberts stated that, contrary to popular opinion, she and Peters did not start dating on the set of Adult World. She believes her character in the comedy was responsible for their delayed union as she was not at her most attractive. On this matter Roberts said: "I have no makeup on, it looks like I cut my own hair off, so I was not exactly looking cute to get a man. So we ended up dating way, way after."

The couple, pictured here at the show's premiere, work on American Horror Story: Coven together:

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.

Emma Roberts Engaged To Evan Peters Despite Violent Bust-Up 4010893 News

Emma Roberts and Evan Peters are reportedly engaged now after the actress was spotted wearing a ring and one of their photographer friends confirmed the news. Peters, 26, and Roberts, 22, have only been together for little over a year but the Kickass actor apparently decided the time was right and got down on one knee over the festive season.

Photographer Tyler Shields used Twitter to congratulate the couple with an awe-inspiring photo showing the We're The Millers actress Emma flying through the air towards Evan's outstretched arms. "Congrats to @RobertsEmma and Evan Peters for getting Engaged this was the moment I knew he really loved her!" he captioned the professional shot.

Luckily, Emma's Alleged Battery Hasn't Had An Effect On Her Relationship.

Peters is said to have popped the question in New York with a fancy pink and gold diamond ring which was spotted on Roberts' finger when the pair were snapped filming in New Orleans on the 5th January. The jet-setting couple squeezed a trip to London for New Year's Eve, and perhaps to celebrate their new level of commitment, says a source speaking to Extra.

It's certainly been a whirlwind year for the American Horror Story co-stars and one that hasn't all been as smooth sailing as Evan's fairly prompt proposal might suggest. Back in July, the pair made headlines for all the wrong reasons after a domestic got out of hand and the cops were called.

Peters was left bloodied after allegedly being attacked by Roberts when an argument spiralled out of control. Due to the physical violence used, Roberts was detained in custody but released once Peters said he would not be pressing charges. Despite the shocking incident, the couple managed to stay together and it looks like their relationship is now stronger than ever.

Neither the couple nor their representatives have commented on or confirmed the engagement news.

Author Ned Vizzini's Tragic Suicide Puts Depression And Mental Health Under The Spotlight 4005177 News

“Be More Chill” and “The Other Normals,”Author of “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” Ned Vizzini, committed suicide this Thursday. After The Associated Press originally reported that the 32-year-old writer had died after jumping off the roof of his parents’ Brooklyn home, the focus has fallen on Vizzini’s depression and problems of mental disorders in general.

Vizzini, who reached worldwide fame with his 2006 young adult novel, later turned into a motion picture, had been struggling with depression for most of his life. In fact, the writer penned “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” based on his time in a Brooklyn psychiatric ward as a teen. It was later made into a film starring Zach Galifianakis and Emma Roberts.

Vizzini's bestselling novel was made into a young adult film starring Zack Galifianakis.

Before his life and career were tragically cut short, Vizzini had become an advocate for mental health. While traveling the country, he spoke to teenagers and young people with depression and recommended resources for help and support.

“At his signings, countless kids would approach him to say that he changed their lives— he gave them hope,” his longtime publisher, Alessandra Balzer, of Balzer+Bray, said in a statement Friday, shared by the New York Daily News. Vizzini continued to explore the subjects of depression and alienation in his other books, “Be More Chill” and “The Other Normals.” Vizzini is survived by his wife and their 2-year-old son.
