'American Horror Story' scoop: Eric Stonestreet from 'Modern Family' to play .... -- EXCLUSIVE

Looks like Cam from Modern Family is seeking a little therapy.

EW has learned exclusively that Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cameron on ABC’s hit comedy, will be appearing on Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s new FX horror bonanza American Horror Story, which premieres Oct. 5.

Stonestreet will appear in a November episode as a patient of Dr. Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott). The reason for his shrink session? Stonestreet’s character has a fear of urban legends, like Bloody Mary and, more importantly for the show, Pigman. Stonestreet has worked with Murphy and Falchuk before on Nip/Tuck as a death row inmate.

    I thought he would be playing Robert Gibbs. Isn’t “American Horror Story” going to be about the Obama administration?

    Does everything have to become political? Geesh, thought this was about an actor appearing on a tv show, not a political diatribe

    Agreed Ethel don’t bring your political nagging and bitter views to a story like this one has absolutely nothing to do with the other This is about entertainment not the campaign trail I for one am a fan of Eric stonestreet and I’m very excited to watch this show.
