American Horror Story: Freak Show Welcomes World's Smallest Woman

by at . Comments

American Horror Story: Freak Show creator Ryan Murphy announced big casting news via Twitter last night.

Well... small casting news, to be more accurate.

Jyoti Amge, a member of the Guinness Book of World Records as The World's Smallest Woman, will appear on Season 4 of this FX drama, with Murphy sending out the following photo yesterday of Amge with star Jessica Lange.

Due to a condition known as achondroplasia (a bone-growth disorder), Amge stands only 2 feet, .6 inches tall.

No premiere date has been set yet for American Horror Story Season 4, but it is expected to debut in October and be set in 1950s Florida.

Lange's character will be in charge of one of the country's final traveling carnival acts and other returning cast members will include Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett and Frances Conroy.

Those new to the series will include Michael Chiklis and, as just announced, Patti LaBelle.
