First Look: ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Finally Introduces Us To Twisty The Clown

The Big Bad

Oh boy. For months now, we’ve been hearing about a creepy ass character named Twisty the Clown who will be the big bad villain in the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Freak Show … and today, we get to see what Twisty looks like. AHS has just released a new teaser video that gives us our first look at the killer clown that will inspire nightmares for years to come. As you may recall, Ryan Murphy described Twisty the Clown as “a nasty fella (and murderer)” who wears a half-mask which hides the lower part of his face that is so scary it will case you to “faint in terror”. I was under the assumption that we would have to wait until Freak Show debuted to get our first look at Twisty. If you think you can handle it, click below and meet Twisty the Clown. More »

Aubrey Plaza Will Voice Grumpy Cat For The ‘Lifetime’ TV Movie

Most accurate casting choice ever?

This is such awesome news, but first lemme make a confession. I had never seen the Grumpy Cat video until yesterday. I read this casting announcement when PITNBr Iris shared it on Facebook and I was like, Okay. I should probably watch this thing, finally. And it all makes sense now—I was cracking up over that permanent frown! And, I’ll admit it, I’m totally gonna watch Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever now… mainly because Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza has just been announced as the voice of Tardar Sauce (and it’s not a movie I’d have to pay for, anymore).

Among my faves of the stars competing this season are fashion designer Betsey Johnson, comic Tommy Chong and Mean Girls hottie Jonathan Bennett.
