First he cast the world’s only two headed woman, and now Ryan Murphy has inked the world’s shortest woman Jyoti Amge to the fourth season of his anthology series, American Horror Story. The Guinness Book of World Records has the Indian-born Amge at just over two feet tall, making her the world’s shortest woman by country mile. No word yet on who she’ll play, but the season, which is subtitled Freak Show, is set at carnival in Jupiter, Florida, in the year 1950, so we’re guessing that Amge will be playing a Ferris wheel. Murphy tweeted out a wonderful photo of Amge with Horror Story‘s high priestess Jessica Lange that we can all look at and enjoy together.
