Michael Chiklis has had an amazing career filled with comedies, family television and dramas, but one show was so hard on him he doesn’t know if he could do it again.
When he was asked if he would do another season of American Horror Story on Larry King Now, he told the Ora TV host, “Probably not.” Then he explained, “I mean that was one of the darkest years of my career. It is one thing to do a Horror film, in the context of like two months or something like that. But to live in that for 6 months.”
This is coming from a man who spent 5 years as The Commish, 6 years in the very gritty The Shield and over a year on Gotham. The Shield was so violent for me, I watched one episode and never ever went back. Yet he feels AHS was, “so dark and so nasty.”
The show creeped him out so much that for the first time in his career, he did not watch the final product. After watching a few episodes, he chose not to watch any more.
Which says a lot to me, especially since I though American Horror Story: Freak Show was the tamest one of the series so far. Although, his Strong Man was really messed up and took part in some really awful scenes. I guess now that I think about it, I can see where he is coming from with his thoughts.
I will say this about Chiklis, he truly is one of the greatest and most diverse actors on television. He has played the spectrum and each role is completely different. My favorite one, No Ordinary Family ended way too early because that was a gem of a show that ABC didn’t realize they had.
Michael Chiklis was on The Queen Latifah Show yesterday and he made the mistake of telling her that he is afraid of snakes. So she told him the best way to get over his fears, is to face them head on on a talk show. Then before he could even comprehend what she meant, a man came out holding a Pugsly the Albino Burmese Python.
So did it work or did he go all Shield on her? You just have to watch to find out.
Julie Benz has pretty much always been a blonde since we got to know her, but that is no longer the case because she’s now a brunette. The No Ordinary World star Instgrammed the above photo and said, “So this happened today…” Why the new look? It is for a role and I hope she keeps it even after the movie ends. Don’t you think she looks gorgeous with the darker hair?
OMG! We’ve moved 5 car lengths in a half hour! #RoadRage!

Too late… #PeedMyPants #RoadRage
It’s just not funny anymore. #RoadRage
Michael Chiklis was stuck in some major LA traffic with five teenagers yesterday and let’s just say he was very animated about it. To pass the time he documented his suffering on Twitter and we get to laugh as his pain.
What might not be that funny is that because he didn’t post any pictures after he said “It’s just not funny anymore;” we don’t know if he went all The Thing or Vic Mackey on the cars but I am sure The Commish is looking into his No Ordinary World traffic jam.
Seriously are those pictures and the captions not the funniest thing you have seen all day? Especially the photo that he posted after he got some much needed relief. You know if he wanted to give the other drivers as a big of a laugh as we got out of his situation, he could’ve done his butt dance for them. That would’ve made the time go faster for everyone.
