Horror Story, which stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton and Jessica Lange, centers on therapist Ben Harmon (McDermott) and his wife Vivien (Britton) who move along with their kids into a haunted house. Quinto, who will appear in at least four episodes, will play Chad, the gay former owner of the house who becomes friends with Vivien.

Quinto’s character will be introduced in the show’s big two-part Halloween episode, which Murphy and Falchuk are working on. The first part will air in the series’ regular Wednesday time slot on Oct. 26, followed by Part 2 on Halloween night.

Since Heroes ended, Quinto has been focused mostly on movies, including playing Spock in Star Trek and its in-the-works sequel.

    It’s not a show I would normally look at, but given the cast, I think I’ll at least give it a chance.

  2. Sam says:

    He’s probably the black S&M-suited thing.

  3. Danny says:

    I just don’t know if I can buy him as gay. It seems like such a stretch for him. He’d have to be Meryl Streep-good to pull THAT off.

  4. Amanda says:

    That’s fab news! Been looking forward to this show and I love Quinto! Super excited now!

  5. Zoe says:

    I didn’t have a reason to watch this show until now.

  6. Saulo says:

    Is Mr. Ryan Murphy biulding an army full of great/excelent/genius actors?

  7. Kristy says:

    Ha, took me a second to realize Danny was being sarcastic. Anyway, this is great news, I’m such a fan. He’ll be great on the show. I’ll definitely be watching.
