Big news for “American Horror Story” fans!
Patti LaBelle has joined the cast of the next season of “American Horror Story: Freak Show.” The soul singer will play Gabourey Sidibe’s mother on the fourth season of FX’s hit horror anthology. The fourth season will focus on a good ol’ fashioned American freak show in the early ’50s.
LaBelle will play the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character, a townie in 1952 Jupiter, Florida who discover the secrets of Twisty the clown killer. Sadly, the Grammy-winner’s part will only require her to act; no singing will be involved.
Returning “AHS” cast members are: Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe and Evan Peters.
The fourth season of “AHS,” will premiere in October 2014.
