Showrunner Ryan Murphy tweeted a creepy photo from the set of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” — the two-headed woman Dot and Bette, played by Sarah Paulson. (Here’s a tweet from Paulson herself showing the front side of Bette and Dot.) ”Freak Show,” which will be set in 1950s Florida with Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, and other regulars from the cast, is filming now and debuts in October.

Yesterday evening, The Frisky offices were rocked by news from “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy, who announced that the next season of the show would follow a completely new cast of characters at a completely different location. No more murder house! No more Connie Britton? No more Dylan McDermott’s abs? Well, not necessarily.
Murphy said that he’d love to bring Britton, McDermott and Jessica Lange back next season, but as completely new characters. And it won’t be in a typical one-family home — or in Los Angeles — but instead, likely in an apartment building or compound. We can’t wait to see if Murphy and team can pull this off — and to see if the gimp suit makes a return appearance. [NY Mag]
Yesterday, Ryan Murphy announced that, after the upcoming season, he’d be letting three of the principal characters of “Glee” go: Lea Michele (Rachel Berry), Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson), and Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel). The reasoning? They would be graduating from McKinley High, and Murphy wants to keep the show true to life and not have students stick around for eight years. But apparently, these dismissals were news to the actors. Chris Colfer—who was just nommed for an Emmy for the show—said he found out via Twitter. “I didn’t necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year,” he said. “I don’t necessarily want to leave so soon. But, I mean, it’s fine. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end.” [NY Daily News]
Not so fast. It appears that two of these three won’t be hitting the unemployment line. Keep reading »

“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f**king ‘Glee.’ And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his f**king show … f**k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do ‘Glee’ … The ‘Glee’ guy, what a f**king jerk. Slash was the first one. [Ryan Murphy] wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate f**king musicals. It’s worse than “Grease.”’ Then [Murphy’s] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they f**king do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little a**holes … ’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves ‘Glee.’ Me included.”
– Dave Grohl tells us how he really feels about “Glee” and its creator, Ryan Murphy. I, for one, would totally like to co-sign this statement. I’ve never watched “Glee,” but it doesn’t matter whether it’s the most brilliant show ever made or the most terrible, it is every musician’s right to market their art how they’d like. That doesn’t make them a**holes. Ryan Murphy — okay, and Dave too, with that salty language! — needs to take a chill pill. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
