Who will he play?
As previously reported, Michael Chiklis is set to be the latest respected actor to appear on American Horror Story with a role in the upcoming season, American Horror Story: Freakshow. TV Line has revealed the details on the Shield actor's role in the series, which is set in the 1950s in a traveling freak show run by Jessica Lange's character.
According to the site, Ryan Murphy revealed to them that Chiklis will play a strongman who is married to Angela Basset's character. Murphy said, "He has scenes with Angela and Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates. I love the part because it's really written to be quite vulnerable, which is something I think Michael does so well – the strong man who's vulnerable. I'm very excited to see [him] tussle with all those great ladies. And he's really up for it, really excited about it."
The show is currently in production and premieres on FX in October.
