Hot off the American Horror Story: Freak Show plot details [1], we're rounding up the announced cast [2] of the next season — including all the latest stars that creator Ryan Murphy announced [3] at PaleyFest and this week's new addition: The Hunger Games' Wes Bentley. FX's horror hit is never the same two seasons in a row, but it does feature some of the same actors in new roles [4], and we already know Sarah Paulson's new look is quite unique [5]. Take a look at who is coming to town for the Freak Show!

Kathy Bates

Kathy Bates, who played the evil Madame Delphine LaLaurie on Coven, will return as a member of the freak show. What "freak" she'll play remains to be seen.
