Ryan Murphy's upcoming anthology series American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson is attracting some Oscar-caliber talent. Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. has joined the first season, FX announced Tuesday.

It's fitting that a series titled Scream Queens will star the ultimate scream queen.
Jamie Lee Curtis, whose patented scream can be heard in horror films like 1978's Halloween, has signed on to star in Ryan Murphy's new anthology horror-comedy project, Fox announced Monday.
2014 will undoubtedly go down as a memorable year for Matt Bomer. In May, he earned some of the best reviews of his career for his haunting and heartbreaking performance as AIDS victim Felix Turner in HBO's acclaimed film The Normal Heart. A month later, he won a Critics' Choice Award, and an Emmy nomination — his first — followed soon after. However, this year is also significant for a more "bittersweet" reason, as Bomer puts it...

Question: OMG! The Halloween episode of Black-ish was the funniest yet! Between all the pranks at home and his office (Josh getting hit was the best — twice!), the daughter deciding not to prank anymore, and the kids not going trick-or-treating because they didn't want to get diabetes, I couldn't decide what was funnier; well, maybe Josh getting hit twice in the nose was the best! However, I think the best thing of the whole episode was the ending when they came out dressed like the Jackson 5; brought back so many awesome childhood memories for me! This is the best sitcom of the 2014 season! I hope they renew it as I look forward to watching it every week! — Amy, Galloway, OH
David Burtka, Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris is joining the Freak Show. And no, we're not talking about the Oscars.
Harris and his husband, David Burtka, will guest-star on the fourth installment of American Horror Story later this season, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
Fox has ordered comedy-horror anthology series from — who else? —Ryan Murphy.
Scream Queens, described as a "gender-bending, comedy-horror" show, tells the story of a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders. The first season will include 15 one-hour episodes and each subsequent season will feature a new setting and story line.
"I knew I wanted to work with Brad [Falchuk] and Ian [Brennan] again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing Scream Queens," Murphy said in a statement. "We hope to create a whole new genre — comedy-horror — and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. We've already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, and we're very grateful to Dana [Walden] and Gary [Newman] for their enthusiastic support."
Ryan Murphy's anthology series American Horror Story has been renewed for another season, FX announced on Monday.
The renewal news comes days after the premiere of the anthology series' fourth season, Freak Show, became the most-watched single program in FX's 20-year history. According to the network, last week's telecast drew 10 million viewers, surpassing the network's previous record holder, the recent seventh and final season premiere of Sons of Anarchy.
Upon hearing that the fourth season of FX's lurid American Horror Story franchise was subtitled Freak Show, you can be forgiven if your first reaction was "Redundant much?" Few series are freakier by their very nature than Ryan Murphy's annual anthology of grotesque Grand Guignol. Freak Show (Wednesday, 10/9c) upholds the grisly tradition, although the empathy shown for this year's bizarre family of sideshow outcasts makes this edition of AHS initially less ridiculous than usual (especially when compared to the ludicrous hot mess of last year's Coven).

Ryan Murphy has said that he's "worried that people are going to have cardiac arrests" because the clown on American Horror Story: Freak Show is too scary. But what about the freak show itself? Do Elsa's "monsters" live up to their title? Yes and no.
Ryan Murphy, O.J. Simpson
Next up for Ryan Murphy: exploring a different kind of freak show.
FX has ordered American Crime Story, a new anthology series from the Glee and American Horror Story creator, the first installment of which will chronicle the circus that was the O.J. Simpson trial in the 1990s.
