True Blood‘s Denis O’Hare is set to co-star opposite Connie Britton in American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s drama pilot for FX.

Murphy is set to direct the pilot, which will shoot next month after Murphy and Falchuk wrap production on Glee. FX and the producers are keeping the premise of American Horror Story under wraps, but a breakdown for the pilot lists its main characters as therapist Ben Harmon and his wife Vivien Harmon (Britton).

O’Hare will play Larry, also referred to as “Larry the burn guy”. It is unclear if the “burn” part is metaphorical.

Murphy and Falchuk are executive producing American Horror Story with Dante Di Loreto. The pilot is being eyed for a fall series launch on FX. O’Hare, who co-starred on True Blood last season, has been recurring on CBS’ The Good Wife.

  • He is an AMAZING actor, almost makes the show worth checking into since this is no where near my normal cup of tea. Can’t wait until he comes back on True Blood!!

  • Gah, as much as I’m totally skeptical about Ryan Murphy after watching Glee devolve from a really promising show into a total disaster, I’m going to have to watch this for Britton and O’Hare. Also, FX has some amazing shows so that definitely adds to the credibility.

    • It’s the only reason I’m watching. I had no desire to watch a Murphy pilot, but I’ll give it a go.
