  • Ryan Murphy revealed that AHS veteran actress Sarah Paulson would be coming back around for a fourth time, although now she would be working "double" time as she takes on the role of conjoined twins Bette and Dot. The first official photo still from the set revealed a back-shot of the twins wearing a hospital gown staring out of a window. [5]
  • Jessica Lange was one of the first cast members slated to return for season four.

  • It was announced on the final night of PaleyFest that former The Shield and Vegas actor Michael Chiklis would be joining the cast of American Horror Story.

  • Actress Erika Ervin, who plays a fictionalized version of herself under the name "Amazon Eve", is also known for her work as a body double for the lumbering reanimate, Shelley Godfrey from the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove.
  • Actress Jyoti Amge, who plays La Petite, is the shortest woman in the world, standing at only 2'0" tall and weighing 11 pounds. This is her first work in television.
  • Actor Ben Woolf, who played the character of Meep on "Freak Show" passed away on February 23rd, 2015 at the age of 34. He died from a stroke brought on as a result of a head injury he received when he was clipped by the side mirror of a passing SUV. [8]
