'American Horror Story' FX Season 4 Premiere Jessica Lange Sings David Bowie Song 'Life on Mars', Watch Here (VIDEO)
"American Horror Story: Freak Show" (Season 4) premiered Wed (Oct 8) night on FX and one of the most memorable scenes was when cast member Jessica Lange sang the David Bowie song "Life on Mars". You can check out the video of the performance above.
Show creator Ryan Murphy also announced the actress' cover of the song will get a release on iTunes.
"Due to popular demand, we will be releasing Jessica Lange's version of LIFE ON MARS on iTunes. Just wait until you see her Lana [Del Rey] cover," he tweeted.
He also wrote, "Because we love our FREAK SHOW fans, next week's episode is also 90 minutes...just like the premiere! Wait until you meet Michael [Chiklis] & Angela [Bassett]!"
Season 4 is set in Jupiter, Florida in the 1950s and filmed in New Orleans for the second year in a row. Creator Murphy stated, "If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there's some more clues in that year. It's a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we've done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I'm very excited!"
Jyoti Amge, the world's smallest woman, joined the cast for this season. Amge, 20, stands just over 2 feet tall. The Indian-born actress is considered the world's shortest woman by both the Guiness and Limca books of world records. Amge has appeared both in a 2009 documentary about her called Body Shock and on an Indian reality TV show that's somewhat similar to "Big Brother."
For those who remember Pepper (played by Naomi Grossman in "Asylum") she could be back since Season 4 takes place before the 1964-set "Asylum." They may reveal Pepper's origin story and how she ended up a Briarcliff. Two other actors listed below Grossman on the call sheet, Christopher Neiman as Salty (Salty and Pepper sound like a circus act duo to us) and Ben Woolf as Meep, both look similar and like their characters may be other microcephalics or related to Pepper.
Other new characters this season include Michael Chiklis. Show creater Ryan Murphy revealed to TVLine, that Michael Chiklis will play a "strong man" who is married to Angela Bassett's character. "He has scenes with Angela and Jessica Lange and (onscreen ex) Kathy Bates," the series creator told the website. "I love the part because it's really written to be quite vulnerable, which is something I think Michael does so well - the strong man who's vulnerable. I'm very excited to see [him] tussle with all those great ladies. And he's really up for it, really excited about it."
