White Collar star Matt Bomer has signed on to American Horror Story: Freak Show.
We are just over a month away from the premiere of the latest chapter in the American Horror Story saga, American Horror Story: Freak Show.
Over the last couple of weeks, American Horror Story has picked up a few new faces that will be joining the Freak Show on its new journey.
The Hunger Games actor Wes Bentley has been brought on to play a tormentor from Ethel Darling’s (Bates) past.
Also joining the cast was R&B/Soul Singer Patti LaBelle who has been brought on to play the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character, The Shield actor Michael Chiklis as strongman Dell Toledo, and The Americans actor John Carroll Lynch as Twisty the Killer Clown. Yes…a killer clown.
Now, it seems as if there is yet another new face joining the cast of the Freak Show, and it is a pretty familiar one. According to The Hollywood Reporter, White Collar and Magic Mike actor Matt Bomer will be joining the cast of American Horror Story: Freak Show.
Unfortunately, before you get too excited, he will not be a permanent member of the cast. According to the report, he will be joining the series for one episode.
Now, there is always the possibility that his character could be expanded – it wouldn’t be the first time it has happened – however, for right now he has only signed on for a one time appearance.
As is the case with just about everything in regards to American Horror Story, the details of his character are not readily available. We guess they can’t give everything away right out of the gate.
What do you think of Matt Bomer joining the cast of American Horror Story, even if for only one episode? What do you think his character will turn out to be? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on Wednesday, October 8th at 10:00 p.m. on FX.
