American Horror Story Nabs Zachary "Spock" Quinto For Multiple Episodes
Bah! Dammit! If you've been following my coverage of American Horror Story you know that I do not want to like this show! I just don't! I don't like Ryan Murphy or Brad Falchuk (mostly Murphy) and I'm petty enough to root for their failure. My respect for Glee waned about the middle of the first season and then completely dropped off the face of the Earth when Murphy started opening his big mouth. And now, yet again, American Horror Story goes and makes me more interested and excited for it to premiere! Damn you, Murphy!
TVLine reports that for "his first TV gig since his star-making turn as the archvillain on Heroes, Zachary Quinto is in negotiations for a major arc" on the new FX series. That's pretty great casting for, well, for any series, as Zachary Quinto's star is only on the rise with Sylar, Spock, and a big role in the upcoming Margin Call under his belt. Quinto won't make an appearance until the series' two-part Halloween episode that is scheduled to air October 26th and 30th. As far as his character is concerned, TVLine describes him simply as "Chad, the gay former owner of the house who becomes friends with Vivien."
Hm. A former owner of the haunted house could either provide some interesting details or be harboring some interesting secrets, either way it sounds like a pretty intriguing character for Quinto to play. He's expected to turn up in at least four episodes (so, for those bad at math, two on top of the Halloween two-parter), so he could still be kickin' around come November sweeps. Like I said before, try as I might to despise this show, I've been nothing but impressed so far...to check out the awesome marketing promos that FX has released so far, head over to their YouTube channel. The videos are presented as "clues," but really they're just creepy little teasers. Very creepy.
And for good measure, here's the latest preview.
American Horror Story premieres October 5th on FX. It stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, and Jessica Lange.
