UPDATE: While Zylka is staying mum on his character’s details, EW has learned that he will in fact be playing a character named Daniel, who is the “Most Beautiful Boy in the World”… and also a deaf-mute.
The Secret Circle may have ended its run on The CW but fans can rejoice that castmember Chris Zylka has found a new TV gig — FX’s thrill ride American Horror Story. The actor told EW last night at The Amazing Spider-Man premiere (Zylka appears in the superhero film as well) that he finally could reveal he had landed the AHS job. “Ryan Murphy, thank God, let me finally announce tonight that I will be a cast member on the second season of American Horror Story,” says Zylka. “It is a thrill, an honor, a challenge. Honestly, it was as big a thrill to book that show as it was to get a part in The Amazing Spider-Man. I cannot believe I will get to be in the same room as Jessica Lange, let alone work with her. I am a lucky, lucky guy. I, of course, cannot tell you who or what I am playing or anything about the story yet. Ryan only gave me the okay to say I was in the show. I’m not going to do anything to jeopardize that.” READ FULL STORY
