In a recent interview with Bassett, she says that she isn't sure what she will be doing in the freakshow, she could be the bearded lady, a Siamese twin, or just about anyone. She hasn't been working on anything special or a talent like Sarah Paulson or Jessica Lange, therefore her "freak-ability" will be something that she doesn't have to work on.
Many feel that Angela Bassett would make a great fortune teller or even the bearded lady, however, the only person in the freakshow that we know anything about is Jessica Lange. She will be playing a Marlene Dietrich character that owns the carnival and will do anything to keep her business running. The freakshow will be full of rescued individuals that are working to help save the business and likely screw some things up along the way.
Along with Jessica Lange and Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates, Gabourey Sidibe, Denis O'Hare, and Jamie Brewer will also be returning to "American Horror Story."
What do you think would be the best freak for Angela Bassett to play?
