So far there is very little known about American Horror Story’s new season. We know that it is titled “Freak Show”, and it will take place during the 1950’s in Florida at one of the last American freak carnivals. The carnival is run by an ex-pat German, who will be played by Jessica Lange. There will also be a two-headed female named Dot and Bette (played by Sarah Paulson).
Thanks to an Argentinian fan site, we now have an unofficial leaked call sheet! The call sheet reveals that a familiar actress will once again appear on the season of AHS. If you have followed the show, you may remember Pepper, the microcephalic woman from AHS: Asylum. Pepper was played by the actress Naomi Grossman, and according to the leaked call sheet, we’ll be seeing her once more in the first episode of the new season!
The episode may reveal some of Pepper’s back story, considering she was inspired by the 1932 cult film “Freaks”. “Freak Show” takes place before 1964 , which is when Pepper is in the asylum. Taking this into consideration, we may learn how and why Pepper was placed in the Briarcliff asylum! There is also the addition of a character that will be known as Salty. Any guesses as to who may be teamed up with Pepper as a possible friend or sidekick?
Other revealed actresses and actors include John Carroll Lynch as a twisted clown and Grace Gummer (who played a small role in AHS Coven) as Penny the Candy Striper. Kathy Bates will also be playing as Ethel Darling, and her son, Jimmy Darling, will be played by Evan Peters.
