TVLine reported that Patti will be playing Gabourey Sidibe‘s mother during her four-episode run. An insider told the site, “LaBelle’s alter ego — who I’m told does not sing — is a local townsperson who begins to unravel the murderous secrets of Twisty the clown killer.”

The newest edition of FX’s hit, is all about the last freak show in America in 1952. Along with Patti, the show is welcoming two other new characters. Wes Bentley, 35, will be guest starring, along with Michael Chiklis, 50, who is playing a strongman.

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, The show will feature a clown killer– who we are praying is played by Evan Peters — a bearded lady, and a German Jessica Lange. All of these characters sound amazing and we can’t wait to see what creator Ryan Murphy has in store for us this year.
If this season is anything like the original, Asylumn, or Coven, we cannot wait to see what is in store for us. With so many talented actors and diverse characters, not to mention the addition of Patti, October cannot come soon enough!
