‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ Drops Actor…Because of His Hair?

'American Horror Story: Asylum' Drops Chris Zylka
FX/Sony

After The CW canceled ‘The Secret Circle’ after one season, Chris Zylka was still coming out on top. He snagged featured roles in ‘Piranha 3DD‘ and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man,’ and was set to appear on the second season of FX’s hit series ‘American Horror Story,’ dubbed ‘Asylum.’ But it was only until recently that he lived his own personal horror story of sorts when Executive Producer Ryan Murphy dismissed Zylka from his two-episode story arc.

In ‘American Horror Story: Asylum,’ which takes place in a 1960s era asylum for the criminally insane, Zylka was originally pegged for a significant character of the deaf-mute named Daniel, who is described as being the most beautiful boy in the world. “I cannot believe I will get to be in the same room as Jessica Lange, let alone work with her,” he said of the gig. “I am a lucky, lucky guy.”

Well, he’s not so lucky anymore. Zap2It learned that Murphy cut Zylka from the second season of ‘American Horror Story’ over issues with his hair. The actor refused to shave his lustrous locks for the role, which had the option to extend past the original two episodes, and was therefore let go. Since then, an unnamed actor has stepped in and the story line of Daniel has been cut down to a single episode arc.

The real horror is that Zylka would’ve joined up with Frances Conroy, Adam Levine, Jessica Lange and Joseph Fiennes, to name a few, for an October premiere. But unfortunately his divo-ish attitude got him cut. Sorry for all the ridiculous puns but it had to be done.
