Great news out of PaleyFest: FX alum Michael Chiklis is joining the fourth season of American Horror Story. The onetime Shield star took the stage with the rest of the cast at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Friday, saying, "What a way to come back to my home network. We’re going to freak you and scare you!” According to Deadline, Chiklis will play Kathy Bates's ex-husband and Evan Peters's father. And, for those wondering who else might be on the "Freak Show" season, showrunner Ryan Murphy promised, "Every person on this stage is coming back."
