Pilot Scoop: Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters Round Out Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story

Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott, meet your new demon spawn TV daughter.

Relative newcomer Taissa Farmiga (kid sis of Up in the Air star Vera) has been cast as the troubled offspring of Britton and McDermott’s characters in American Horror Story, the FX drama pilot from Glee EPs Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

Additionally, Invasion and One Tree Hill grad Evan Peters has landed the series regular role of Tate, a patient of McDermott’s shrink character who is described as “Charles Manson dangerous.”

The Horror ensemble also includes Oscar winner Jessica Lange and True Blood‘s Denis O’Hare. Not too shabby this group.
