Zachary Quinto Joins American Horror Story Cast

Heroes and Star Trek star will be pivotal in a major plot arc

The show’s about a therapist, Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott), and his wife, Vivien (Connie Britton), who move with their kids into a haunted house. Quinto will play Chad, the gay former owner of the house who becomes friends with Vivien. Quinto’s character will be introduced in the show’s big two-part Halloween episode and is expected to appear in at least two more episodes after that.
