‘American Horror Story’ Season 2 Gets A Flash of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’
Boy, that ‘American Horror Story‘ season 2 just doesn’t let up with the casting, does it? It’s a real shame that we won’t see anything from the series at Comic-Con 2012 (instead we’ll get ‘Glee‘…yay?) considering all the star-power attached to the series, but for now we’ll make do with the new reports we get. So, who’s the latest face to pop up when ‘American Horror Story’ returns this fall, and where else might you be seeing him soon?
According to actor Chris Zylka’s official Twitter account, the actor has picked up a role in the forthcoming second season of FX’s Ryan Murphy horror-hit ‘American Horror Story,’ set to bow this fall. Best known for his work on The CW’s ‘The Secret Circle’ and even the ’10 Things I Hate About You’ TV series, Zylka will most recently be seen as iconic bully Flash Thompson in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man.’
No details have yet been revealed on Zylka’s role for the season, set in the 1960′s amid the backdrop of an East Coast mental institution, but given the actor’s age and youth appeal it seems possible Zylka might form one have of the mysterious pair referred to as “the lovers.”
Joining Zylka for the second season of FX’s breakout hit are Americanized ‘Skins’ star Britne Oldford, ‘Big Love’ star Chloe Sevigny, ‘The Voice‘s Adam Levine, French actress Lizzie Brochere, Joseph Fiennes and James Cromwell. Returning from the first season are Jessica Lange, newly-minted series regular Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe. As previously reported, all will be playing new characters independent of the first season.
