Didn’t see Ryan Murphy going in this direction, but he did! This photo was (heavily) doctored in Photoshop; that is, unless a character trait of Jessica Lange’s “Elsa Mars” is that her hands and wrists are bigger than her head (even though they made her head larger, too). We’re not trying to ruin the fun, it’s just distracting how waaaay out of proportion her hands and wrists are. We’re not doubting that Jyoti Amge is the world’s smallest woman, just saying hey went a little apeshit manipulating the photo, and we’re having trouble focusing on anything but Ms. Lange’s giant hands. We can’t wait to see more!
Also, Patti Labelle’s casting was recently announced. We would have got that information to you faster, but it was the same news cycle that broke the story of Robin Williams passing (and the shockingly tragic circumstances surrounding her death), so everyone was kind of preoccupied (and sad). No word on who LaBelle is cast as, but we’ll keep an eye out!
Both will be wonderful additions to the cast. Now let’s cross our fingers that Naomi Grossman returns as Pepper (we’ve heard a rumor–someone on a message board said that they heard that Ms. Grossman’s name showed up on a casting sheet, but we don’t want to get our hopes up until it’s confirmed. I bet she’d love to reprise the role, and the character has a huge fan base, so it could happen!
