A short while ago we passed on the news that Mena Suvari had landed a guest starring role on “American Horror Story” as a young woman with a connection to the Harmon house. Her nickname? The Black Dahlia. Now we have our first look at Mena in character as Elizabeth Short.
Along with Suvari you’ll see Joshua Malina (“The West Wing”) as her dentist who lives in and operates out of the house that’s the main location of the show. “My plan was to say to you I can’t reveal much, but boy, is it hard to get that rubber suit on,” Malina joked with EW, referring to the show’s most mysterious character. In all seriousness, he says, “I am a seemingly unassuming dentist who may or may not actually be so.”
Look for Suvari and Malina to appear in the ninth episode, airing November 30th.
“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.”
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; Zachary Quinto; Teddy Sears; Matt Ross and Lily Rabe as Charles and Nora Montgomery; Mena Suvari; Joshua Malina; Kate Mara; Morris Chestnut; Eric Stonestreet; and Sarah Paulson.
