It looks like FX still isn’t done announcing guest stars for its new series “American Horror Story” as we’ve learned about two more characters who’ll be joining the fray before Season One is over. Read on for the details.
First up, according to TVLine, is Mena Suvari (pictured right), who has been cast as a young woman with a connection to the Harmon house. Her nickname? The Black Dahlia. As in the high-profile murder victim whose 1947 unsolved killing was the subject of myriad books and movie adaptations. It remains unclear if the character will actually go by the name Elizabeth Short, but we’ll all find out when Suvari makes her appearance in the ninth episode.
Guest star #2 is Kathleen Rose Perkins, who EW.com tells us will portray Peggy, the supportive lesbian friend of Zachary Quinto’s character, a gay interior designer named Chad who used to be one of the owners of the show’s centerpiece haunted house. She’ll appear in at least one episode, possibly more.
“American Horror Story”, co-created by former “Nip/Tuck” executive producers and current “Glee” co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The all star cast features Dylan McDermott (“The Practice”) as “Ben Harmon,” a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (“Friday Night Lights”) as “Vivien Harmon,” Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as “Violet,” the Harmons’ teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as “Constance,” the Harmons’ neighbor; Evan Peters (“One Tree Hill”) plays “Tate Langdon,” one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare (“The Good Wife”) as “Larry Harvey.”
Along with Suvari, Quinto, and Perkins, guest stars for the series include Frances Conroy (“Six Feet Under”) as the Harmons’ housekeeper; Alexandra Breckenridge (Dirt) as the Harmons’ housekeeper; Jamie Brewer as Constance’s daughter; Teddy Sears; Morris Chestnut; Eric Stonestreet; and Sarah Paulson.
