The FX series American Horror Story: Freak Show follows a troupe of the strange and unusual in 1952, who are looking to survive as performers amidst the dying world of the American carny experience. From the twisted minds of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the show stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts, Denis O’Hare and Finn Wittrock.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Finn Wittrock (who quite brilliantly plays Dandy Mott, a petulant rich kid with a dark side) talked about how he came to be a part of Season 4, what he thinks of his character, why Twisty the clown sparked his interest, working with John Carroll Lynch, whether the viewers might ever feel sympathy for Dandy, putting on the clown mask, and what he’d like to do in Season 5. He also talked about working on Unbroken (which he’s seen and says is epic), directed by Angelina Jolie, and writing his own feature film, called The Submarine Kid. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
