Michael Chiklis will be playing a strongman in American Horror Story: Freak Show.

TVLine reports that The Shield star, who is making his first appearance on Ryan Murphy’s anthology horror series, will be playing a vulnerable character with ties to both Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates’ characters, and (as previously reported) the father of Evan Peters.

Ryan Murphy told the site that he’ll be “a strong man who’s married to Angela Bassett[‘s character]. He has scenes with Angela and Jessica Lange and [on-screen ex] Kathy Bates. I love the part because it’s really written to be quite vulnerable, which is something I think Michael does so well –  the strong man who’s vulnerable. I’m very excited to see [him] tussle with all those great ladies. And he’s really up for it, really excited about it.”

American Horror Story: Freak Show begins on Fox this Autumn. You can buy American Horror Story Season 1-2 on Blu-ray for £40.91 at Amazon.co.uk.
