The world's smallest woman Jyoti Amge is joining the cast of the TV series "American Horror Story."

The fourth season of the FX series is subtitled "Freak Show" and will star Jessica Lange as a woman who manages a freak show during the 1950s in Florida, noted The Hollywood Reporter.

"American Horror Story" producer Ryan Murphy announced the casting yesterday on Twitter with a picture of Lange and Amge, and the caption:

Jessica and our newest cast member Jyoti Amge...the world's smallest woman.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Amge is the world's smallest living woman and stands 2 feet, 0.6 inches, about the size of a two-year-old child.

She was born in Nagpur, India, and wants to be a Bollywood star so this could be her big break.

Amge, who has a condition called achondroplasia, became the world's smallest woman in 2011 when she turned 18.

"It is wonderful to celebrate my 18th birthday with a new world record, it's like an added birthday present," Amge stated at the time. "I feel grateful to be this size, after all if I weren't small and had not achieved these world records I might never have been able to visit Japan and Europe, and many other wonderful countries."

This season's "American Horror Story" will also feature Michael Chiklis, Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Patti LaBelle.
