A Guinness world record holder has joined the cast for the fourth season of FX's American Horror Story

Her name is Jyoti Amge, and she's the smallest woman in the world. Showrunner Ryan Murphy tweeted the news with a photo today: 

American Horror Story: Freak Show is set to premiere in October. The storyline follows the last-surviving freak show in the U.S., operating in Florida, because where else?

Amge, 20, who stands 2-foot-6, according to Guinness, will play the mother of Gabourey Sidibe's character in a four-episode arc, The Hollywood Reporter reports. That definitely qualifies as freaky. 

Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy and Evan Peters are returning alongside new additions Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley and Patti LaBelle.
