Chiklis joins 'Coven' stars for new 'Horror'

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - Michael Chiklis is ready to freak out.

The actor is joining the "American Horror Story" family for the anthology series' fourth season, subtitled "Freak Show." The Emmy-winning star of "The Shield" will portray the ex-husband and father of characters played, respectively, by Kathy Bates and Evan Peters.

The Chiklis casting announcement came during the "American Horror Story: Coven" event that served as closing night of PaleyFest, which over 16 days presented casts and crews of past and present TV series, attracting thousands of fans to the Dolby Theatre.

"Coven," which aired from October 2013 to January 2014 on the FX channel and revolved around witches in a New Orleans boarding school, made for the highest-rated of the three "Horror Story" seasons.

Series co-creator Ryan Murphy explained the setting for the upcoming series "is not a circus and is not carnival, it's a freak show," adding that it was Jessica Lange who came up with idea of her character.
