Ryan Murphy has added another stellar actor to his line-up with the addition announced today via The Wrap of former All My Children alum and Julliard grad, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon) to the cast of his FX anthology series, American Horror Story: Freak Show!

Murphy made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday stating: “Thrilled to announce the very talented FINN WITTROCK has joined the cast of Freak Show!”   However, no character information as to whom Finn will play has been announced at this time, as per usual with the series!

It comes as no surprise that Murphy should choose Finn as the two worked together on HBO’s The Normal Heart!

The upcoming American Horror Story: Freak Show, is set in 1950’s Florida (although shooting is going on in New Orleans) and will bring back cast members including Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters along with new series star Michael Chiklis!

What do you think of the success Finn has found in primetime and movies?  Let us know!

I’m a fan of American Horror Story..So looking forward to seeing Finn ..
I can only imagine what role he would play ..

Great actor! Enjoyed watching him on AMC! I had to stop watching the reruns of AMC because I get so sad and depressed. Still boycotting ABC! I will never forgive ABC.

ABC has the very best primetime soaps. awesome..!!
You should boycott ABC daytime, and not prime time..
AMC was canceled by the daytime peoples not by primetime..
ABC has different departments.. It is huge..
It was the daytime suites that had AMC canceled.. Not ABC in the whole, actually..
They/daytime suits recommen, do their job and ABC does what they recommend..
you are missing some really great primetime soaps, for sure..

I miss Tadd and Adam. I wonder how David Canary and Michael E Knight are doing?

You need to get over it, AMC deserved to get cancelled. The ratings were falling and the writing was terrible. One Life to Live was a good soap, the ratings were getting really good, but they got cancelled because of Brian frons. I am over it now, The Chew is getting better ratings, than AMC. I hope you are watching other soaps. I watch GH, Days Of Our Lives and The Young and The Restless. We all should be happy to have 4 soaps remaining on air.

The only reason Oltl was going up in ratings was because AMC folks were watching to try to show that we want our soaps. Please stop trying to make it a contest between our soaps. We need to be a team. I loved AMC and you loved OLTL. We are both sad! We need both of them back! I don’t see it happening because our actors are scattered everywhere now. I do wish someone would rerun our shows from the beginning. I would watch even though there are chunks missing. I watch Y&R. It concerns me that The Chew has that kind of viewership because I just see all of these people sitting and watching TV and eating while they are watching. I am concerned about the health issues. I have the same concern with Dr. oz and his many recommendations. However, we are a capitalist society, it is all about the money. IM0.

He stole the show in “The Normal Heart,” in my humblest of humble opinions …. but good gravy, could you have chosen a worse picture of him?!? Jeesh!

I always thought this young man was a great talent–glad to know he is getting work.

He has a freakishly handsome look, so he will fit in perfect, lol..I LOVE American Horror Story..I really don’t remember him that well on AMC.

He was amazing in “The Normal Heart,” as was fellow daytime vet Matt Bomer.

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
