The fourth cycle of Ryan Murphy's 'American Horror Story' will take us to the 'Freak Show' with a cast of familiar faces, but at least one new big name has been added to the marquee. 'The Shield' and 'No Ordinary Family' star (ha, right?) Michael Chiklis has officially joined 'American Horror Story: Freak Show,' but as whom, you ask?
Just over half way through 'American Horror Story: Coven,' and series star Jessica Lange has made it abundantly clear her intent to leave with the confirmed fourth season's end in early 2015. And while casting for future installments of the FX horror-drama remains up in the air for now, series creator Ryan Murphy has some surprising choices for future stars in mind to fill the void, among them Reese Witherspoon, Michelle Pfeiffer and Michael Chiklis!
