American Horror Story: Freak Show has cast All My Children alum Finn Wittrock for the upcoming season.
Co-creator/executive producer Ryan Murphy announced Witrock’s hiring on Thursday via Twitter.
Freak Show, which premieres in October, is set in Florida during the 1950s, and stars Jessica Lange as a German expatriate managing one of the last remaining freak shows in the country. It is unknown how big (or small) his role on the new season will be. Freak Show marks Wittrock’s second project with Murphy, as the actor appeared on his Emmy nominated HBO original film, The Normal Heart.
Finn Wittrock began acting in 2003, booking roles on Cold Case, ER and CSI: Miami. He landed his first high-profile role in 2009 when he was cast as Damon Miller on the ABC soap opera All My Children. After departing the series in 2011, Wittrock went on to appear in Torchwood: Miracle Day, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Showtime’s Masters of Sex.
Returning AHS stars include Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Frances Conroy. The Shield alum Michael Chiklis is a new addition to the cast.
