American Horror Story: Freak Show is adding All My Children actor Finn Wittrock to the all-star cast.

Finn Wittrock Joins 'Freak Show' Cast

Wittrock’s casting was announced by American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy on Twitter. “Thrilled to announce the very talented FINN WITTROCK has joined the cast of Freak Show,” Murphy wrote.

Murphy has previously worked with Wittrock on the Emmy-nominated HBO movie The Normal Heart, which starred Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer and Taylor Kitsch.

Aside from American Horror Story and The Normal Heart, Wittrock is best known for his arc on Showtime's Masters of Sex and appearing in 2014 flicks Winter’s Tale and Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Later this year, Wittrock will be seen in Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut about Olympian and World War II hero Louis Zamperini, Unbroken.

'AHS: Freak Show'

Freak Show, set in 1950s Jupiter, Fla., stars Jessica Lange as a German ex-patriot who collects “freaks” for her show. Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, and Angela Bassett are all set to play Lange's character's freak show employees. As for the tone of the series, FX CEO John Landgraf has said it will land somewhere in between the gothic Asylum and the more campy Coven.

“Some years it’s going to be big and bright and brash and campy the way Coven is. Other years it’s going to be dark and brooding—like Asylum was," said Landgraf. "I guess I would put Freak Show half-way in between the two. It’s not quite as brooding and formal and Hitchockian as Asylum, it’s got a little bit more humor and a little bit more camp, but it's got a brooding period feel to it also."

American Horror Story: Freak Show will premiere on FX Oct. 15.
