Posted this in last series' thread, figured I'd repost here,

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ is casting extraordinary extras in New Orleans

Quote:
Filming is in full swing for American Horror Story: Freak Show and they are looking for additional extras with extraordinary features.

A recent casting call stats they are looking for people who fit the following descriptions: “Super Strong” – Extreme Muscles, Albinism, Alopecia, Extremely Hairy, Extremely Tall (6’8” and Up), Heavily Pierced, Little People, Morbidly Obese, Physical Deformities – i.e. Missing Limbs, extra fingers/toes, surplus limbs, Skinny, or Uncommonly Short.


Anyone who might fit the bill can send an email with their Name, Age, Phone Number, and a recent photo to info@bathersoncasting.com.

AHS, which is filming in New Orleans, recently cast Jyoti Amge, 20, the world’s smallest woman.

Promo poster doesn't look that freaky. Looks like a remake of "It" by Stephen King.

That casting list is fairly weird though, if that's what they're still looking for imagine what they might already have.

Hmmm, for some reason I have reservations about this season and I am not looking forward to it like I did the last season. Hopefully they prove me wrong.

Yeah, seems like it has gotten a little tame. Maybe I'm wrong.

I'm sure you can find it On Demand, or on Hulu, Amazon, iTunes, etc. Probably even on the FX website, I'd wager.

I haven't watched the show, but I'm planning to check out the link in a few minutes. A girl who works in my wife's office is supposed to appear in episode 3 or 4 (I think), and possibly more episodes after that . . .

Don't ever make the MISTAKE of buying a Samsung TV..
They consider THIS
normal on a two month old set..

It's a shame that in the end TCU's playoff chances all came down to this . . .

So was the beginning in the future and the rest of the show in the past? When she as the diner she saw lobster claw boy and talked about how he left them, etc. He then refused to come back and said it was over and stormed out. Then we see them suddenly together at the carnival.


So I guess I will be the negative voice. I was very underwhelmed with the premiere. A scary looking clown with a horrible face is...what for it.. actually a bad clown. Shocking. It was so telegraphed that what he actually did was neither scary or shocking and came across a little goofy in his acting.


The split screen is stupid. That is not what each one is seeing as they were completely different and just took away from the show.


The special effects were pretty bad on the two headed girl, especially around the neck. Also the neck of the sliced cop was really bad makeup.


The singing, ugh, while I understand the plot line, it did not have to go on so long, it was sooo bad.


Jessica Lang's accent is horrible. She struggles with it so much at times it is hard to hear what she is saying with all the other background noise.


Just so many little things wrong that I kept looking at the time to see if it was going to be over soon.

Hmm, I rather enjoyed the singing! I like the original Bowie tune and thought they did a great job with it.

By all indications on the FX site it's available for streaming, if you think it's worth it.


As far as I'm concerned, if this is the best they can do, with Ryan Murphy putting their best foot forward with he directing, then it looks like another dreary season mixing some good ideas with a whole lot of derivative filler. Tod Browning can rest easily about this one.


I was fooled by last season, with a good beginning and then deus ex machinae(sp?) out the wazoo, with people dying and then coming back to life yada yada. Don't know if I can hold out for another full season's worth.

I too found myself checking the clock and even FF a few times.I wish they'd give Francis Conroy more of a role.

I like the color grading where they are making look like a "Doris Day" movie or Technicolor. Very appropriate for the era. The "Doris Day" reference is what show runner David Kelly said of the color grading used in the UK series "Utopia" (not the reality show). He wanted that effect.

I thought the first episode was great .. and definitely some homage to Browning in there .. I busted out laughing when Kathy Bates first appeared, she looked so .... Amish ..


Killer Clown seems a little contrived, hoping we get some backstory on him / her .. it looks like the Bus had been lived in for some time .. and the whole bit about the "Horror" of the Two Headed Woman, (Sarah Paulson .. Bette and Dot) .. OK, it's the 1950's but still .. no one ever heard of a Siamese Twin .. Chang and Eng .. ??


Ryan Murphy claims that within the first and second episode of this season, hints about what Season 5 will look like are dropped in .. wonder if anyone picked up on anything ..


It looks like the one and only time Frances Conroy appears is the first episode .. ?? And even then, just briefly .. and apparently had bought all the seats for the performance ..


And Jyoti Amge as Ma Petite was almost unnerving .. I thought it had to be CGI until I looked it up ..


FX continues to push the envelope, especially with the Black and White blackmail film ..


Elsa Mars / Life on Mars .. nice ..

The premiere is a 90-minute episode. That probably limits the scheduling for repeats.
