Zachary Quinto Joins 'American Horror Story'

Zachary Quinto is returning to the small screen for a “major arc” on FX’s American Horror Story, Deadline reports.

The 34-year-old actor will reportedly appear in at least four episodes of the drama series, which is being helmed by Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

Zachary will play Chad, a gay former owner of the haunted home where Ben and Vivien Harmon (Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton) move into.

American Horror Story premieres October 5 on FX, with Zachary making his debut on the October 26 episode.

@Phil – Well, I think that the requirement to be a “good human being” does not depend on sexual orientation!

Maybe I watch the show because of Zach! He’s great!

Finally? Umm… Zachary Quinto;’s first recurring tv role was as ‘Sasan’, Tori Spelling’s gay best friend in ‘So Notorious’. He did a sketch as ‘Smudge’, a bisexual activist, and then there was this little 6 MONTH stint on an off Broadway, and well awarded revival of Angels in America as Louis Ironson. Hardly his first stint playing a gay character.

this slow deliberate publicity strategy certainly continues to reap its benefits. one wonders will the next installment of the star trek franchise have a gay story line for any of the characters.
