'Deadwood' actor to appear on 'American Horror Story'

A Deadwood actor is going to hang out in FX’s loony bin. Ryan Murphy tweeted Wednesday that Ian McShane, best known for his memorable run on the HBO drama, is set to guest star on American Horror Story: Asylum. The show bows Oct. 17. Unfortunately, we don’t know his character or episode number. Dang!

The Golden Globe winning McShane just wrapped the independent feature Cuban Fury, in which he plays a salsa dance Instructor. He will also play King Brahmwell in Jack the Giant Killer, directed by Bryan Singer, for March 2013. READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story': Get your first look at Adam Levine in 'Asylum' -- VIDEO

EW was the first to exclusively reveal American Horror Story: Asylum‘s secrets. But now, season two is only weeks away (Oct. 17 at 10pm on FX) and actual footage is finally being released, including our first glimpses of Adam Levine and Jenna Dewan-Tatum as honeymooners Leo and Teresa. The clip also spends a good chunk of time on Sarah Paulson’s Lana, a reporter hoping to do a story on Briarcliff, the asylum run by Sister Jude (Jessica Lange), but instead winds up as a patient against her own will. Plus, we get some decent flashes to the (possible) alien abduction of Evan Peters’ Kit with his body being sucked up into the ceiling. Excited yet, AHS fans?


'American Horror Story' promo: Fear, lust, and insanity

After several weeks of messing with fans by releasing a series of tiny (and, eventually, maddeningly unsatisfying) promos, American Horror Story has ponied up with some actual footage from the new season!

In the promo below, we’re shown some of the new characters, given a look at some of the sexiness that takes place (though, as of yet, there doesn’t seem to be any naked butts), and, of course, we see a taste of the horror in store. Arguably the scariest part from this clip? The part with the eyelid retractor. Shudder.

Check it out below.


'Breaking Bad' villain joins 'American Horror Story' -- EXCLUSIVE

Ding-ding! An Emmy-nominated villain from Breaking Bad is coming to American Horror Story. Veteran character actor Mark Margolis, who played the stroke-addled wheelchair-bound drug lord Hector “Tio” Salamanca on the AMC drama, has been cast in a recurring role in AHS: Asylum.

In addition to Breaking Bad, Margolis has played memorable characters on projects such as Scarface, HBO’s Oz and The Wrestler. We don’t have many details about his new character on the FX horror drama. Okay, we don’t have any details about his character. He plays a recurring character named Sam Goodwin, that’s all we got. But we do have two other actors who we can also exclusively report are coming on board in guest-star roles: Amy Farrington (Hung, The New Adventures of Old Christine) has been cast as a worried mother on the show and David Chisum (One Life to Live) will play a loving husband.

American Horror Story returns to FX on Oct. 17. And if you didn’t already see it, one of the show’s ads received top marks in our annual Fall TV ads graded gallery.

Was 'American Horror Story' punished for Emmy miniseries bid?


FX’s American Horror Story struck out in the best movie or miniseries category at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday night. Though American Horror Story co-star Jessica Lange took home an award for best supporting actress in a miniseries, the scary acclaimed drama lost to HBO’s Game Change in the main category. American Horror Story also faced Sherlock (PBS), Hatfields & McCoys (History),  Hemingway & Gellhorn (HBO), Luther (BBC America).

Emmy voters clearly loved the freshman FX program — it was nominated for a whopping 17 nominations overall. But the network endured some criticism and more than a little second guessing after entering the show in the miniseries category rather than go up against shows like AMC’s Mad Men and Showtime’s Homeland in the main drama series category. American Horror Story returns for a second season on Oct. 17, but with a different storyline and new characters (though with some of the same actors). As the Los Angeles Times noted last week, the horror show’s “Emmy tactics have some critics screaming, and not in a good way.” READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story': Check out two new teasers here -- VIDEO

UPDATE: They’ve added yet another teaser featuring someone in what appears to be a very creepy bath. Check it out below.

Late last week, we got our first look at a teaser for American Horror Story: Asylum, the second installment in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s horror anthology series. Today brings yet another peek at the highly anticipated series set in an insane asylum run by nun Jessica Lange. The newest teaser is even more vague, showing a white-cloaked nun walking past another nun praying and then hanging up a blue coat. What in the name of Rubber Man does this all mean?!

'American Horror Story': Watch the creepy new teaser for season 2 -- VIDEO

FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum doesn’t begin its terror-filled second season until late October but today the first teaser was released and… it’s really friggin’ creepy. The second season is set in a 1960s insane asylum run by Jessica Lange, but the teaser is scarily simple: A nun deposits a bucket of food near the woods, but something tells us she’s not leaving it for squirrels or some cute elves living in the trees, making cookies. What could she be feeding? What lives in that woods? Watch below… READ FULL STORY

FX president: Damn straight 'American Horror Story' is a miniseries!

Some TV fans have taken shots at FX for submitting American Horror Story to the Emmys as miniseries, where the returning horror thriller will face the likes of History Channel’s Hatfield & McCoys and HBO’s Hemingway & Gellhorn rather than heavy hitting series such as AMC’s Breaking Bad and Mad Men. Just the other day Jimmy Kimmel told TV critics, “It’s not a miniseries — let’s be honest.” And we’ve made remarks too (I believe my exact words were: “Go big or go home, FX; pick on shows your own size.”)

So when a critic at the TCA press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday half-jokingly asked FX president and general manager John Landgraf if he knew American Horror Story was actually a miniseries when he picked it up, the executive came out swinging. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel on Emmys: 'American Horror Story' 'not a miniseries'

FX’s American Horror Story may have been allowed to compete in the miniseries category for this year’s Emmy Awards, but this year’s host Jimmy Kimmel certainly has a clear opinion on the matter. “It’s not a miniseries — let’s be honest,” he told a room of television critics today.

Meanwhile, Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences defended the board’s decision, following creator Ryan Murphy’s appeal to let Horror Story compete as a miniseries. “We have a terrific process to vet these kinds of decisions, and our board of governors believed that the show clearly belonged in the miniseries category,” he said.

The miniseries category, which this year also included Luther and Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia, is being monitored “carefully,” Rosenblum later added. “We’ll see how American Horror Story plays out next season, but what was presented to the committee and the board of governors was persuasive enough to have them vote that the show qualified.”

Kimmel quipped: “I’m going to try to qualify as a miniseries next year. It seems like a soft category.”

UPDATE: FX president responds: Damn straight ‘American Horror Story’ is a miniseries!
