Diva Patti Labelle Joins the Cast of "American Horror" This Fall

FX’s  Emmy nominated American Horror” series will return with yet another icon; joining the ranks with Angela Basset (who appeared on American Horror Coven), legendary diva Patti Labelle will appear in four episodes when the series returns this Fall with American Horror: Freak Show.

Playing the grandmother of actress Gabourey Sidibe (known for her role as Precious,) this season will be set in 1952 and will focus on the “last American freak show.”

While LaBelle will reportedly not be singing, her character will play a key figure in unraveling a mystery surrounding Twisty the Clown killer. The role is already being praised as potentially being a role custom fit for Labelle.
