If ‘Asylum‘ is to act as any kind of guide, ‘American Horror Story: Coven‘ will have plenty more castings to divulge right through the October 9 premiere, both new and old. Latest to sign on for round three of FX’s Ryan Murphy horror-thriller is ‘Magic City‘ star and ‘X-Men‘ franchise player Danny Huston, who joins opposite Jessica Lange in a role sure to end bloody this fall.

According to Murphy, who first revealed the casting over Twitter, Huston will take the role of “a sexy (and dangerous) BF” for Lange’s Fiona. Love interests for Lange haven’t gone well in the previous two seasons, whether by Joseph Fiennes‘ Monsignor Timothy Howard last year or Lange’s model young plaything in season 1, so surely Huston will have his work (or more) cut out for him.

Premiering October 9, we know that the third season will pit witchcraft against voodoo between both present and 1830s New Orleans to tell its terrifying tale. ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ will also welcome newcomers Christine Ebersole, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Leslie Jordan and Gabourey Sidibe, along with returning franchise regulars Jessica Lange, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckinridge, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.

Take a look at the latest teaser for ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ below, and tell us what you want to see from season 3 in the comments, now that Huston has joined the cast!
