Zachary Quinto Latest To Rejoin 'American Horror Story'
First, "American Horror Story" gets back Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild honoree Jessica Lange. Now, Zachary Quinto will also rejoin the FX thriller from Ryan Murphy when the sophomore season bows this October, reports Deadline.
Like Lange, Quinto won't be reprising his previous character, former owner of the doomed Harmon family's home Chad Warwick. Nevertheless, also like Lange, he'll once more be a regular among the second-season cast as a whole new character in a story set against an East Coast mental institution backdrop. It's also reported among the scant details currently out there that he'll be portraying a nemesis to Lange's new character and one of two male leads.
Hmm, Quinto playing a lead rival to another main character? That's a good sign. It sounds suspiciously like what made him so sensational as the villain Sylar during the first season of NBC's "Heroes."
"I had an amazing time and I only did four episodes of the season, so it was just a little bit of an appetizer for me; I would love to work more," Quinto said last month.
In line with reports from EW.com that a full three returning members would be announced today, Deadline claims Murphy will make an announcement probably during tonight's PaleyFest "American Horror Story" panel concerning up to three other actors that will be following suit with Lange and Quinto. Unfortunatley, Quinto himself won't be present, as he's currently working on reprising his role as Spock in Paramount's sequel to J.J. Abrams' blockbuster "Star Trek" reboot.
